Volunteer Fire Company Donates to Local Hospital

Since 1993, the Volunteer Fire Company has donated a total of $26,224.05 to the "Aluminum Cans for Burned Children" fund. The funds were raised from individual gifts and through the proceeds of their can sale and garage sale. The donation will go towards West Penn Hospital's "Aluminum Cans for Burned Children" (ACBC) program. This program provides relief for children who have been through the trauma of a burn injury by supporting both their physical and emotional recovery. Aluminum cans are collected on an ongoing basis at the drop-off bin located behind the Public Safety building at 1000 Beaver Grade Road.

Community Open House

Sound the alarm! The Moon Township Volunteer Fire Company hosts a community Open House every year as a kickoff to Fire Prevention Week in October. All residents are invited and encouraged to attend. Fire trucks, rescue trucks, police cars, and Valley Ambulance units are on display including the landing of a medical helicopter. Firefighters talk with guests about fire safety, setting up an emergency fire escape plan at home, and remembering to “stop, drop, and roll”. They also train guests how to use a fire extinguisher and talk with parents about teaching their children the proper use of 911. Parents and children are encouraged to take part in this fun and informative event.
