Communities served by Volunteer Firefighters depend on them to be their first line of defense for many types of emergencies.

The public relies on Volunteers to be their first line of defense in these emergencies. Volunteers spend an enormous amount of time training to prepare for these emergencies.

Volunteer Firefighters are summoned to a wide array of emergencies across the country everyday including fires, emergency medical incidents, terrorist events, natural disasters, hazardous materials incidents, water rescue emergencies, high-angle and confined space emergencies, and other general public service calls.
Volunteer firefighters do not get paid, but they will be first on the scene to pull you out of a crushed car, protect your property, and risk their lives to save yours.
Below are some of the unselfish volunteers doing their part for the community.
Some or these generous people are volunteer fire fighters while others are good citizens volunteering their time at the carnival to help raise funds for the Freeburg Fire Company.  The community appreciates your generosity

Each year, we're greeted with smiles

(thanks for the kind words)

These ladies were so busy...

...but did take time for a photo op.

The Chief and his Deputy (Hey chief... the arm sling is gone!)

We stumbled upon the secret, underground enclave known as "Central Command" 
These folks are the brains of the operation!

Thumbs up for you buddy for volunteering your time for our community!!

He's eating the profits...!!!

More smiles coming from the volunteers!

Really... who gets the medal after 50 years?  Gary or Joyce?

Took time to meet the "Bingo Godfather"

Barry and Marilyn ran out of cakes!!!

Dave enjoyed talking with Dottie about his grandfather's dance hall.  Dottie was the Grand Marshall for the parade. 

Having fun...

and all smiles while giving their time to help the community!

Another mother-daughter team volunteering

The "A" team?  Hahaha!

It's my honor to stand among community heroes

So Joyce heard Dave loves milk pies (aka slop pie).  God love her - she made him two pies.  Joyce also posing with her twin grandsons.  THANK YOU JOYCE - You are too kind!

Husband and wife teams serve the community too!

Great beard Adam!  Thank you for what you and all the other volunteers do for us!
The Fire Police are also volunteers who serve the community.  Some of their duties include: Traffic Control at Emergency Scenes, Scene Safety, Crowd Control and Liaison, Scene Security, Police Assistance, and Logistics.


Thank You Fire Police for your volunteer service to the community.


Several volunteer fire companies were represented for the parade.  We got to catch up with the Kreamer Station 120 volunteers - BTW, the young lady passed the test and knew right away!!!

We also got to chat with the newly formed,  chartered volunteer search and rescue team from Northumberland Co. Sta 45

Thank you volunteers!

Did someone say food???

Wow... take a look at some of the carnival food!

Folks enjoying carnival food under the pavilion

While walking the carnival grounds, Dave caught up and chatted with Freeburg Mayor (and fellow musician) Fred Moyer

A special shout out to the Freeburg Boy Scouts!

The "Day Life" and

Maybe a little small for a fish sandwich

Hey Schrampie... look what we found!

Even kids enjoy a "Lucky Afternoon"

And there it is...

Stick gets to see and chat with his kindergarten teacher again!

And then.... near the end of our shows....the skies opened up !!!
Rain came down and our crowds scattered...
