Volunteer Fire Department

Founded in 1955

The mission of the Wright Township Fire Department is to provide the citizens of Wright and Rice Townships and surrounding communities with the highest degree of service within our capacity in order to preserve and protect life and property from the devastation of fire and other life threatening emergencies in the most efficient manor possible without compromising professionalism or safety.

We look to share Fire Dept information, training info and pictures. We look to include a little firefighter humor and Safety Tips.

Participating Department Recognition Program. Wright Twp Vol Fire Dept has held for 4 consecutive years the level of 75% Nationally Certified Firefighters.

The voluntary fire fighter certification program is a legislatively mandated system promulgated by Act 1989-112, repealed by Act 1995-61. The Voluntary Fire Fighter Certification Program allows for the certification of any Commonwealth resident, 18 years of age, regardless of religion, gender, or natural origin. Commonwealth emergency responders have an opportunity to participate in and be recognized as a certified fire professional at various levels in accordance with nationally recognized and sanctioned Professional Qualification standards.

We have a Suppression Engine, a Rescue Engine, Pumper Tanker, Tower Ladder, 3 Brush Vehicles and 3 Support/Utility Vehicles

We are constantly looking for new members. Remember, you don’t have to be a firefighter to be a member and you do not have to live inside of Wright Township.
