A combination Fire Department in Northwestern Pennsylvania. Seven full-time paid firefighter/EMT's, five part-time paid fireifghter?EMT"s and three volunteer fireifghters operating two pumpers and a 100' aerial Ladder. Protecting 6,000 residents, college students and visitors in a town previously bustling with railroad and steel manufacturing industries. The community is moving in a direction of advanced medical technology, largely, in part, due to a local affililation with the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center (UPMC). Higher education is offered through Thiel College, a  private liberal arts college which continues to grow in enrollment and facilities. Our population is growing older and senior citizen housing is becoming more prevelant inluding a 9-story senior citizens apartment building. Our central business district includes buildings constructed in pre-1900. We improved our ISO protection class rating from a class 5 to a class 4 in 2010. The paid firefighters are organized under Local 1976 affiliated wth the IAFF. The International Fire Code is enforced under Borough Ordinance and Pennsylvania Commonwealth law. We answer an average 900+ alarms per year.
