Well we have the same problems here is Western PA as everyone else does.. I am the President of Citizens Hose Company #1 of Glassport, also the 2nd Vice President of the Western PA Fireman's Assoc. One idea we did use for recuitment was to invite the local high school Junior & Senior football players to our annual banquet. The first year we did very well, 2 guys asked for applications that night. But things have changed. It seems like kids today only want to hang out on street corners or stay in the house and play Nintendo.

But here's a question for all volunteers.. How much of your own money do you spend on your fire company?? Think about it.. Every Hoagie sale, every raffle ticket sale, every fish fry... Who buys this stuff, but our own people!!!

Good luck to all & Stay Safe!!
