Joining WFD

The Whitehall Township Bureau of Fire is always looking for new members. Membership in the department comes with more than just the satisfaction of knowing you are helping out your community. While being volunteer isn't always easy, the calls come in at all hours of the day, it does come with great personal rewards. When placed in difficult situations, you learn to develop a trust and respect for your fellow volunteers. Camaraderie and friendships run deep in our organization.

We offer a comprehensive training program in conjunction with courses offered locally through the Bucks County Community College. We have our own training facility which includes a 3 story burn building, a flashover simulator trailer and basement fire simulator building. New members are expected to complete the Essentials of Firefighting course. This course prepares you for taking the PA State Firefighter 1 test and certification. While you are learning in a formal training environment, you will also be allowed to participate and respond on fire calls.

Weekly training nights are held on Mondays at 7pm. On some Monday evenings you will train with just your station, on other evenings you will train with the other stations in the department or with fire companies in surrounding communities. We all work together!
