2017 Fund Drive now underway.
If you don't receive a letter in the mail you can open it here. Please help us raise funds so we can continue to operate. This year the Huntingdon County Fire Chiefs Assoc. applied for a federal grant to buy radios for the counties new radio system. It was a combined grant for almost all fire departments in the county. We just received a denial letter on that grant, so now Shavers Creek will have to buy over $60k in new radio equipment out of our operating budget.
Shavers Creek Fire Company is always looking for new people. However you don’t have to be a “Firefighter” to help. There is a lot that goes into your community fire department. The fire department is a small business, so it has all the things that go with a business. We have garbage bills, phone bills, and a lot of administrative issues. We are always looking for “Firefighters” but also have many needs for other talents, such as Fire Police, financial administrators, and skilled trades. We apply for at least two grants a year, organize all our fundraiser's, and maintain our buildings; our members who may also be "Firefighters" do all of these tasks. We often refer to members as "Firefighters", however not everyone performs firefighting duties. Please stop in and get to know how you may help. Our meetings are held on the 1st and 3rd Thursday of every month at 7:30pm in the Shavers Creek fire hall. We will be glad to see you there.
We are still in the planning stages for a new fire station. Our current station no longer meets the needs of the department, although it has served us well for many years our needs have changed. It is difficult to find apparatus that will fit in the doors, and we have very little storage room to keep and maintain our gear and equipment. We have acquired a lot of property beside the current station and plan to build the new station there.
We have set a goal to open the new station on our 75th Anniversary in 2021, thats only 3 years away!
Shavers Creek Fire Company would like to say thanks to our community for all of their support, without them we wouldn't be able to continue providing services to our community.
Every Monday evening.
Here is an educational video for you child to watch explaining 911 and when to use it.
