Do I need to have prior experience or training to become a volunteer firefighter?

No experience is necessary to join Upper Macungie Township Fire Department. To become a certified volunteer firefighter, we provide you with training at weekly drill nights on Tuesdays, plus classes through local community colleges and the PA State Fire Academy.

Will I get paid?

Volunteers do not receive financial compensation, but there are many other benefits of joining including mastering new skills and the satisfaction of serving the community.

How much time do I have to donate as a volunteer?

This is entirely up to you! Our volunteers work, attend school and take care of their families, so we understand that they cannot answer every call and appreciate the time they can donate to the fire company.

What is the live-in program?

The live-in program is an exciting opportunity for college students and young adults offered at Fogelsville Volunteer Fire Company. These volunteers must be available to go on calls 40 hours a week and in exchange, live at the fire company rent free.

How do I sign up? 

To learn more, fill out an inquiry form on the Join Us page. Your information will be sent to our Chiefs who will contact you shortly and invite you for a tour of the station.
