We are always looking for new members! We accept members in many capacities. Anywhere from firefighters and EMTS to people who just want to help by keeping our building clean or helping at our fundraisers. We provide gear and training and will assist anyone in getting certified in what they are most interested in. Call or stop by any Tuesday night to learn more and to pick up an application.
Due to many of our members having work and family obligations during the holiday season, we will not be having a December breakfast. We appreciate all of your continued support with our breakfast! We will see you in the spring!
We have smoke detectors!
If you living in our community and are in need of smoke detectors, please call us! You can also stop down any Tuesday night to pick some up. Smoke detectors save lives!
Our members are up to date on all CPR and First Aid training requirements.
Thank You, Chief Seifert
The officers and members of the Silverdale Volunteer Fire Company would like to thank Keith Seifert for serving as the Chief of the company, as well as a chief officer for well over a decade! His leadership and guidance helped keep our community and members safe. Chief Seifert held command on hundreds of incidents and has responded to even more throughout his time as chief. Moving forward, Keith will be the Chief Engineer of Silverdale, in charge of all apparatus, equipment, and driver training. We look forward to continue learning from Keith on emergency incidents and drills. Thank you, Keith!
Welcome to Silverdale Volunteer Fire Company
2019 was another busy and productive year. We responded to over 410 calls, both fire and EMS. We will continue to strive to protect our community and work to make 2020 our safest year. The Silverdale Volunteer Fire Company is proud to continue our duel dispatch system with the Hilltown Volunteer Fire Company. Our two fire companies continue to respond to each other calls and are working hard to provide an effective firefighting and rescue force for our community, and to ensure that we have all the manpower necessary to get the task done. We are proud to provide this community with reliable fire protection and we would like the thank the community for all of their support! In the meanwhile, just like you, our normal day-to-day operating, maintenance, and training expenses continue to grow. Once again, we are asking you to PLEASE dig deep, and continue to support your volunteer firefighters. These dedicated men and women selflessly put themselves in harm’s way to protect the people and property in our great community. Only through your support can we continue to provide them with the tools, training, and support they need to do this heroic work. Volunteers do not just save lives; they will save Silverdale Borough and Hilltown Township tax dollars and keep insurance rates low. By maintaining a high level of training and preparedness, our active volunteers help keep the ISO Public Protection Classification Ratings low, which helps keep your insurance rates down. Now it’s your turn to be a hero, and be part of a great tradition of service.
