The department’s rescue and medic unit are both certified by the state of Pennsylvania Department of Health.
The department is very active in community, and allows groups to utilize our facilities for their meeting and special activities, including the 4H, Boy Scouts and we are co-sponsors of the annual 911 Remembrance Day in conjunction with the Claysville American Legion and the Claysville Council of Churches.
The Department’s primary source of income is private donations in conjunction with the frequent fund raisers which include tool bashes, cash bashes, ladies night out, ticket sales and the annual Claysville Volunteer Fire Department Festival which is always the last Saturday in July and is the largest event the department conducts.
The Claysville Volunteer Fire Department is an all volunteer department with a mission to provide the highest level of emergency services to the citizens who call 911 and place their trust in our ability to help them in their time of need.
