You're Invited!

The Fox Chapel Volunteer Fire Department is seeking new members. Local residents are invited to join the FCVFD, now in its 50th year of service to the families of Fox Chapel.

Current Member List

Although it has a highly skilled, paid police department, Fox Chapel Borough depends on a corps of trained volunteers for firefighting services, something that has long been true for most communities in Pennsylvania. While we in Fox Chapel are fortunate to have the best equipment and training available, and tremendous support from Borough officials, we face the same manpower shortage which plagues so many municipalities in our state. The scary fact is that today's force of volunteer firefighters is only 25% the size of the force active in this state 25 years ago. You need us, and we need you!

The benefits of membership in our department are many, but the camaraderie and satisfaction derived from the work we do together top the list. All we require of you is your dedication, commitment and a little bit of time. More specifically, this means attending once-weekly training sessions or meetings and completing a soon-to-begin, state-sanctioned training class. We are well supported, financially, so don't worry about the fundraising component present in so many departments these days. Remember, too, that there is a job in the volunteer fire service for everyone, adults young and old, fit and not-so-fit coming from many walks of life.

Please give us a try; you won't be disappointed! We welcome your interest and your questions. For more information, please call members Dave Schaffner (412-487-2823). Or contact us via e-mail at: info@foxchapelvfd.com.
