The fire service is one of the most diverse and challenging vocations today. It is this diversity that attracts most men and women to join our ranks.

Types of Membership for New Members
  
    The Edinboro Volunteer Fire Department provides services to the Edinboro area to responses such as Emergency Medical Response, Structural Fires, Traffic Control, Water Rescue, Technical Rescue and many other emergencies. The Department has four divisions that you as a member can become a part of depending on where your interest and level of training lies.
EMS Responders
    Our EMS Division is by far one of the busiest in the County with an average of two incidents per day and over 700 calls per year, there is plenty of opportunity for you to serve the community. Most members in the EMS division are trained to the Emergency Medical Technician level which can be earned after 150 - 200 hours of training. Members may also become trained to the Emergency Medical Responder level that allows them to function as an assistant on scene and drive the ambulance with additional driver training. EMS responders can also become trained in rescue techniques with vehicle rescue, rope rescue, and other technical operations.
Firefighters
    The Fire/Rescue Division takes great pride in being one of the most highly trained departments in the County. Members of this division are trained in the “Essentials” of firefighting which includes basic firefighting skills, hoseline advancement, self-contained breathing apparatus, ladders, and other skills. This training is now broken into four courses and takes approximately 160 hours to complete. In addition, there are classes on engine company, truck company, and rescue operations that members can continue their training and education. Members of this division are also cross trained as EMTs or Emergency Medical Responders to provide support services to our EMS division.
Fire Police

    The Fire Police Division is made of a group of great men and women who stand guard to protect the EMS and Fire members from bystanders and traffic. The Fire Police are responsible for scene security and traffic control. These members are trained in basic and advanced traffic control, techniques for dealing with the media and highway safety. The Fire Police members are very active in a lot of community events such as the Edinboro Triathlon, Edinboro University Homecoming, and the Christmas parade.   Members of this division are also cross trained as EMTs or Emergency Medical Responders to provide support services to our EMS division.

Support Services
    Our Support Services group is a great addition to the Department and it consists of men and women who want to help the Department, however emergency response is not something that interests them. This group provides the Department with great support services such as administrative help, fundraising help, and on scene support with rehab and food services.
