The Emmaus Fire Department has been in operation since 1871 and prides itself on being one of the oldest volunteer departments in the area.
We are looking for volunteers to help by being a Active Fire Fighter or Fire Police...
But if that is not for you we have Associate memberships with openings for Fire Prevention teachers, Fire Department Photographers, Fund Raisers, a new program being developed Citizens Emergency Response Team (CERT). If you are interested in becoming an Associate member call the Fire Department Office 610-967-5630.
Requirements for becoming a Fire Fighter in the Department are:
The department's function is not only to suppress fires but to try to prevent the fire before it gets a chance to start. The department operation is conducted by its own officers, drivers and fire fighters with the Mayor being the Chief Official followed by the Fire Chief.
The department also is involved in many other public service details, such as floods, snow emergencies, terrorism, etc.
The Fire Department has practice sessions every Tuesday evening at 7:00 PM
Emmaus Fire Police
Not all of us can be fire fighters handling a fire nozzle at a fire, or driving a shiny red fire truck to the scene of a fire. Someone has to make the way clear for the fire truck and keep the cars and people away from around the scene of the emergency so that the fire fighters can save maybe your property or your neighbor's property or business.
We are looking for people who would like to join us in our job of relieving the regular police force of traffic duty at these fires and emergencies, so that they can protect the rest of the community.
The Emmaus Fire Police is a group of people who attend practice sessions on Tuesday evenings, go through traffic and people control training and other schooling.
If we have stirred some interest in you, please feel free to call the Fire Department Office 610-967-5630 for more information or just stop by some Tuesday evening and talk with us.
To become an Active Fire Police Officer you must:
