Operational Opportunites: Live-In or Duty Crew Member

The Rohrerstown Fire Company is located in the southern section of East Hempfield Township, Lancaster County, Pennsylvania.

We serve a metropolitan area just west of the City of Lancaster. The company responds to about 700 calls a year, this number is increasing with the growing community we serve along with mutual aid given to other departments.

The live-in program offers individual rooms to 12 members with access to cable internet and digital cable. A bunkroom is available if all 12 rooms are full, that can hold up to six members. There is also a library/study room available if a quiet location is desired for schoolwork. In exchange for free-living accommodations, the company requires that members perform station duties, attend trainings/meetings, and respond to emergency calls.

You can also serve as a duty crew member which allows more flexibility with your schedule. Many of our past live-ins members maintain their riding status in the company as duty crew members, but you are required to commit to a minimum standard in order to keep your riding status and gear. Duty crew members must complete the application process and training pipeline like all other members in the organization.
