It has been three months since I have taken the reins as the Chief of the Community Volunteer Fire Company No. 1 of Yorkana, Pa Station 38 of York County. This statement comes after my 90 day exploration/fact finding time.
First and foremost, I want to thank all who have helped in this time of expanded limitations to curtail the spread of COVID. The outpouring of support we have received from everyone proves civil duty is still in everyone’s DNA. Patience in the process is the single most important thing we can all do to ensure a smooth transition back to normal operations.
The members of Yorkana Fire Company continue to provide exceptional service and have not and will not fail to meet the call for action. We are always recruiting for new membership. We need everyone, no matter your limitations. I will find a job for you that meets your specific qualities. We have a brotherhood that no amount of Facebook friends can replace.
I want to be clear about this; I want you if you are interested. Let us walk you through the process. There are training requirements, but training instills confidence, camaraderie, and trust. All of which are vital if we plan to be the best Fire Company and moreover have the best firefighters we can provide. Don’t let your hesitation stall your desire.
Yorkana stands ready, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, and 365 days a year.
