Introducing the new Field 59
The members of the Silverdale Volunteer Fire Company are proud to place the new Field 59 into service. This 2018 Ford F-350 replaced our 1969 Ford F-250 4×4 for the purpose of fighting field and brush fires. As our members are sad to see a truck with such history leave our company, but they are equally as excited to bring in a more modern piece of equipment to serve our community with. With the purchase of this new apparatus, our firefighting capabilities are growing by adding foam to our fleet. This will expand the field trucks’ function for our community by making it a more versatile piece of apparatus. Our members are looking forward to using our new field truck for many years to come.
Welcome to Silverdale Volunteer Fire Company
2017 was a busy and productive year. We responded to over 350 calls, both fire and EMS. We will continue to strive to protect our community and work to make 2018 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.
