Cranberry Township Volunteer Fire Company

 We are a 100% volunteer organization established in 1959 providing fire and rescue services to the residents of Cranberry Township. The Fire Company created a unique agreement with the Township in 1981, which transferred the assets of the Company to Cranberry Township. As part of the agreement, the township provides financial support for building maintenance, equipment, and apparatus. In return the professionals of the Cranberry Township Volunteer Fire Company spend their volunteer time training, performing administrative work, and responding to emergency calls. This is a unique arrangement in southwestern Pennsylvania, and is a model of cooperation between local government and volunteerism.

Spring is around the corner!
Monday, 03 March 2014 11:44

While we just faced much lower than normal temperatures the last couple of weeks spring really is approaching.  Trust us!

Daylight Savings Time begins this coming Sunday morning March 8th.  As you “spring forward” an hour, the members of the CTVFC suggest you use the occasion as a reminder to change the batteries in smoke and carbon monoxide detectors.

Smoke detectors and carbon monoxide detectors save lives ... if they're powered by a fresh battery. Safety experts recommend replacing smoke and carbon monoxide detector batteries twice a year.  So celebrate the time change with fresh batteries all around.

Once you change the batteries, don't toss the replaced batteries just yet. While they're likely not fully charged, replaced batteries can still do duty in children's toys, media players or electronic devices. Squeeze the last drop of power out of them before you recycle!

Smoke alarms have reduced fire fatalities by about 50 percent. About 2,400 people died in fires in 2014 in the United States.

This is also a good time to check your home first aid kit using this checklist, as well as updating your family emergency plan using this checklist.

 

 
Fire prevention is everybody’s job
Wednesday, 10 December 2014 11:22

We at CTVFC are ready to respond to emergencies 24 hours a day, each and every day of the year, but we'd much rather prevent fires from igniting in the first place.

In the event that a fire does break out, we want you to have the knowledge and skills to get out alive.

Go to our fire safety & education section and you'll find information about how to prevent fires in the home and at the workplace, plus information about what to do if you ever find yourself coming face-to-face with fire. We encourage you to familiarize yourself with all of this information and share it with your family and friends. If you find a program that interests you please contact us for additional information.

And as always, if you have any questions, feel free to contact us.
