Mission Statement

The Swarthmore Fire & Protective Association was incorporated in 1908 and is a non-profit 501c3 charitable organization. We have been providing emergency fire protection, suppression and prevention for over 100 years; in 1998 we began providing Basic Life Support emergency medical services with the purchase of our 1998 Osage ambulance. We are a combination fire department with over 50 volunteer Firefighters and Emergency Medical Service personnel; we also employ over 20 career part-time Firefighter/EMT's. Together, they man 2 pumper engines, an aerial Tower, 2 ambulances, a utility van and a command vehicle. All volunteer and career personnel are required to meet State Firefighter I and/or Emergency Medical Technician certification or higher. Our emergency service area is Swarthmore and surrounding communities in Delaware County, Pennsylvania. We also reach out annually to our local schools and places of worship with our Fire Prevention instructional presentation. While we receive local tax support, State and Federal grants, we rely heavily on contributions to maintain our mission of 24 hour fire and emergency medical protection for the citizens in our service area. We are a registered charitable organization with Pennsylvania, #18997.
