As an emergency response non-profit organization apart of the Highway Hub of Western Pennsylvania, our mission at the New Stanton Volunteer Fire Department is to save lives and protect property by implementing the firm foundation of Vehicle Rescue and Fire Suppression.
Most people don't realize that 72% of the fire departments in the U.S.A. are all volunteer. To promote the long standing tradition of the volunteer firefighter, New Stanton Volunteer Fire Fighters are philanthropists of the community who selflessly give up there time for little or no compensation. Members of the department make people aware that volunteer firefighters recieve the same training as career firefighters and that volunteer firefighters are the fire department not people who help out the "REAL" firefighters. It’s not about money, it’s not about fame or glamour. Volunteer firefighters are unique individuals who also work, raise families and count pennies. They get up in the middle of the night to cut a crash victim from a mangled car or walk ankle deep in the charred remains of someone’s home at the point of a community’s most emotional and devastating moments. Support for firefighters goes beyond the home and into the community they serve. If we didn’t have the community behind us, we wouldn’t have a fire department. Volunteers give their time — and in some circumstances, their lives for their communities to have a better, safer place to live. -- Anonymous
