About us

For more than half a century, the North Fayette Township Volunteer Fire Department has proudly stood as a pillar of support for the residents of North Fayette Township, Pennsylvania. Since 1972, our committed volunteers have been responding to emergencies, working tirelessly to keep our community safe.

Our volunteers are the lifeblood of our department, donating their time and expertise to ensure the well-being of our neighbors. These selfless individuals undergo rigorous training to handle various emergencies, from fires to medical situations, and everything in between. They are always ready to spring into action, day or night, to lend a helping hand.

In addition to our dedicated volunteers, we have paid fire inspectors stationed at our central hub, Station 1. These inspectors play a crucial role in maintaining safety standards within our community, conducting inspections and assessments to prevent potential hazards. Together, as a united team, we are committed to safeguarding the lives and property of North Fayette Township’s residents, fostering a strong sense of security and peace of mind for all.
