Requirements for Moon Area High School students interested in the Junior Program:
Our philosophy allows members to best fit their volunteer fire service into their personal life. Although we do have minimum attendance requirements for responding to fire calls and station trainings, most people are easily able to find the time necessary to become contributing members to our team, regardless of having a busy work/life schedule.
We ask all new members to plan on completing the Pennsylvania Essentials of Firefighting Program. The classes for this program are held at various times throughout the year on weekday evenings and/or weekends, which allows most people to attend without interference with their work/school schedules. The program is divided into modules and can be completed within a few months’ time, or spread out over a couple years as an individual can best fit the classes into their schedule.
No. All required equipment and training is paid for by us.
No. We are a completely at-home response fire company. Members are encouraged to respond to calls whenever possible, but we have not found the need to require duty or on call times for members. View our How We Respond page to learn more.
We provide workers’ compensation insurance for all members which covers any incident that is fire company related.
We respond to various types of fire and rescue calls, hold trainings, host fundraisers, teach fire prevention and participate in many other community events.
At the Moon Township Volunteer Fire Company, you are not just a member of our organization, you’re part of the family. Our members come from all walks of life, but on calls and off they all share a common bond to serve their community. Our members are students, medical professionals, electricians, mechanics, accountants, engineers and more, making the fire company a great place to build lasting personal and professional connections.
