The Lawrence Township Fire Dept. #1 established its Student Live In Program in 2012.
The purpose of the program is for live-ins to attain the education necessary to procure employment within a career field, while creating needed manpower for the Lawrence Township Fire Department.
The program is designed for firefighters to utilize the station as their full-time residence, allowing for a quick and professional fire department response. In exchange for living accommodations, the live-in members are responsible for responding to emergency calls, performing station duties, and participating in training.
The Live-In program gives members great exposure to company level, state level and national level training opportunities at no cost.
Lawrence Township Fire Dept. #1 is only a short commute to several area post-secondary schools, including Penn State Main Campus, Penn State Dubois, Lock Haven University Clearfield Campus, and South Hills Business College.
Live Ins are required to have minimum training requirements, participants must have certification as in interior fire fighter (completion of module 4 in PA or equivalent), but encourage members to obtain training and certifications such as: Firefighter I, PA DOH Vehicle Rescue Technician, Hazardous Materials Operations Level, CPR/AED or Higher.
Please feel free to contact us to learn more about the program. Live-In openings are limited. Early application is recommended.
