Slocum Township Volunteer Fire Company is a purely non-profit volunteer organization that provides fire, rescue, and emergency medical services to our community and our neighboring communities. We offer many types of public services along side our duties to our community. All of our equipment and training is purchased by community support (donations, community events, etc) and government grants. Our department works closely with our township to support each other to better serve the residents of Slocum Township. We respond to about 100 fire/rescue calls per year and often top 300 emergency medical calls a year. Our members are offered over 250 hours of training at our station per year and many more at outside departments to help provide these services in a safe and effective manner.
According to NFPA, 96% of all brush fires are started with a man made source and 74% are easily prevented.
Pennsylvania’s Yellow Dot Program was created to assist citizens in the “golden hour” of emergency care following a traffic accident when they may not be able to communicate their needs themselves. Placing a yellow dot in your vehicle’s rear window alerts first responders to check your glove compartment for vital information to ensure you receive the medical attention you need.
The program is a cooperative effort among the Pennsylvania Departments of Transportation, Health and Aging; the Pennsylvania State Police, the Pennsylvania Turnpike Commission and First Responders and local law enforcement.
