Eastern Berks Fire has issued its first quarter fire report to the five municipalities in its first run territory: Bally, Bechtelsville, District, Pike and Washington.
While much was “normal” about call volume, the COVID-19 virus has turned the fire service upside down.
Read the report (Municipal Report 2020-04 EBFD) and see how life has changed for the 100% volunteer fire personnel at EBFD.
Especially read the comments about funding for your fire department. Our ability to pay expenses is now in jeopardy. Until this year, no municipality had instituted a fire tax to guarantee your fire department steady income.
We continue to provide professional grade fire service with our all volunteer department. Your support is needed.
