Fire / EMS

Keep your family safe with a working smoke alarm in every bedroom.

Did you know that roughly half of home fire deaths result from fires reported between 11 p.m. and 7 a.m. when most people are asleep?

Smoke alarms save lives. If there is a fire in your home, smoke spreads fast and you need smoke alarms to give you time to get out. In fact, having a working smoke alarm cuts the chances of dying in a reported fire in half!  http://www.kvfd8.com/files/news/1105/smoke_alarm_infographic.pdf

The Fire District Commission representatives have discussed the need to improve visibility and availability of specific fire district information. To that end we have created a section on the fire departments website directly related to the District with it’s information.

I will be populating it over the next couple days but we ask that each of the municipalities create a direct like to it using http://kvfd8.com/content/kvrfd/   under the name Keystone Valley Regional Fire District.

Thank you.

Interim Fire District Administrator

The Keystone Valley Fire Department (KVFD), formed by the merger of three local fire companies in early 2013, provides fire protection services to West Sadsbury Township.

Effective April 1, 2014, the Keystone Valley Fire Department Ambulance Association will be the primary provider of ambulance and rescue services to the entire Township. For those residents that have submitted 2014 membership fees to the Christiana Community Ambulance, the KVFD ambulance service will “cross honor” those memberships. New KVFD Ambulance membership applications for 2015 can be picked up at the Township Office.

911 Address Signs - 

The Keystone Valley Fire Department will soon be providing 9-1-1 address numbers, at $15.00 per sign. Assistant Chief Robbie Cazillo, who is spearheading the effort, said,”in an emergency, every second counts and it is critical that each residence and business have easily recognized signs posted as required by the municipal codes.” Please click the link to order: http://www.kvfd8.com/apps/public/news/newsView.cfm?News_ID=740 .
