“If you want it, work for it” The Mechanicsburg Fire Department, Downtown Station has done the hardwork. On Tuesday evening our firefighters were presented with the Bronze Level of the Voluntary Fire Fighter Certificate Program as recognized by the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania and administered by the Office of the State Fire Commissioner. This level means over 50% of our active firefighters are certified to a national level. Each firefighter had to successfully complete over 200 hours of training and written exams to accomplish this certification. It has been a four year climb to achieve such an honor.
We had the pleasure of Pennsylvania State Rep. Sheryl Delozier and Tracey Baumgard of the State Fire Commissioners Office presenting the award to our firefighters for their dedication and commitment.
