After the Fire Assistance Program

Recognizing that after a fire is a very traumatic and stressful time.  With that in mind we have set up a program with some local hotels and motels to afford you a room at no charge for the first night to ease some of the stresses.  we also have some information on hand to assist you in making some  of the notifications Below is a link to information from US Fire Administrations program on after the fire. It contains assistance in who to contact and what to do for the first 24 hours, who to contact, what to do if you are insured, what to do if you are not insured, valuing your property, records replacement, salvage hints, checklists to use and much more.

Fire Station Tours

Tours of the fire station are always fun for groups of all ages and backgrounds.  We give countless tours each year.  Please contact the fire station and arrange your tour.  Please ensure that if there are any special considerations, badges, or fire safety talks that may accompany the tour that you let us know ahead of time so we can prepare.  If you are just in the area and want to find out what we do and see the station please feel free to stop in at any time, we would love to show you around.

 


Home Safety Inspection Program

Jefferson Hills 885 Fire-Rescue is now providing free home inspections to any resident in the 885 area.  The inspection will cover various safety points on ways to enhance the viability of a home during the event of an emergency, general fire prevention safety, infant/small child safety procedures, family emergency fire drills and much more.  The home inspection is also a great way to meet current residents and local fire personnel.  To schedule an appointment, call the station between 8am to 5pm or email us at station180@885vfc.com.


Community Events

Each year the fire company participates in many community activities.  Some of these activities have included Jefferson Hills Public Safety Day, Jefferson Hills Clean-up Day, Jefferson Hills Community Day, Church functions, Block Parties and many more.  This gives us the chance to meet the community and for the community to meet its firefighters and learn about fire safety.  If you would like us to visit your function we will be more than happy to support it as long as we are not on calls for service at the time.  To arrange a visit to your function please contact the fire station at least two weeks in advance of your event.


Making A Difference” Program

The “Making A Difference” Program was established to recognize any business that either gave assistance, donations or discounts to the fire company. The acts of kindness from these business’s help us to be the best we can be as a volunteer fire department. We provide a Letter of Recognition and a Plaque to each business to hang in their business to show what they have done to help us.
