                                                                         FFD Annual Fund Drive

The Freeland Fire Department is again conducting its Annual Fund Drive which provides for a majority of its operating capital for the organization each year. The past two years have been challenging due to the effects of the pandemic and the Department members have adapted to the changing environment which has affected us all. Being creative the organization has been able to develop additional fund-raising events while restarting many of the programs that have provided us with our necessary funding over many years. This has allowed us to continue to offer the level of services that the residents and businesses have come to expect. However, a major part of those funds come from you, for without you we would not have the ability to acquire the funds needed to sustain our operational effectiveness.

The Department is again requesting you to exam what emergency services means to your lives and businesses and honestly determine what a fair contribution can be donated at this time. For 139 years we have been providing the residents and businesses of the area with continuous fire protection and have always answered the call to duty when you are in need. Now during these challenging times, we are requesting the commitment of all of you to the Department just as our firefighters commit their lives to your protection every day.

As in the past years the Department has demonstrated its dedication to you by responding to over 200 incidents which tested the determination and abilities of its firefighters. Working structure fires in the borough and surrounding communities again exhibited the training and dedication of Department firefighters and Mutual Aid partners. The recent fire in the 200 block of Ridge St. demonstrated this as firefighters responded to two multiple occupancy structures with confirmed entrapment and heavy fire involvement. We also continue to assist our emergency medical services partners to provide care to those who were in need. Our firefighters responded in the cold and heat, sun and rain, snow and sleet, and always were there to assist those we serve.

The Department continues their training program which is based on reviewing the basics in order to maintain proficiency in performing the tasks which are required to control many of the incidents we respond to. Also, the Department has reinstituted PA State Local Level Training to the program which provides our firefighters with recognized training. This year included the recertification of the Department by the PA Office of the Fire Commissioner as a Bronze Certification Department for having over 50% of our firefighters attaining at least Pro Board Firefighter 1. Currently the department has 20 firefighters who have attained Firefighter 1 with some attaining Firefighter 2 and Driver/Operator Aerial or Pumper Certification. The ISO Rating of 3 is also being maintained. This is a component in the determination of property insurance premiums in the community which displays the commitment of FFD, Freeland Municipal Authority, and Freeland Borough Government to provide quality emergency services.

The residents and businesses in our communities have always been so generous to the Department and have always “answered the bell” when we requested their donations. We know that this will continue and hopefully increase as many realize the challenge emergency services currently face.

If you would desire to be involved in this rewarding volunteer service you can do so by contacting us at (570) 636-3244. We always need firefighters, fire police, and support personnel.
