Barren Hill Volunteer Fire Company, of Lafayette Hill, PA, and Spring Mill Fire Company, of Conshohocken, PA, are always looking to add new members to our team. Regardless of experience or interests, we have multiple positions that vary in involvement and skill-set.
Fire Police Officer:
Whitemarsh Township’s close proximity to the Schuylkill River puts our community at greater risk of flooding and other water-related emergencies. Spring Mill and Barren Hill Fire Companies provide swift water rescue services in the Whitemarsh Township and to the surrounding areas in the event of water-based emergencies. Our swift water rescue personnel train to perform a variety of rescue techniques in swift, rapidly moving waters.
Members of Spring Mill Fire Company’s Public Safety Dive Unit are certified scuba divers specially trained in underwater investigation, search, rescue and recovery skills. Unit members hold diver certifications from the open water level all the way up to the Emergency Response Diving International (ERDI) Emergency Response Diver Technician.
The unit holds designations for the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) National Incident Management System (NIMS). Complying with these national industry standards allows the team to better collaborate with other local rescue dive teams managing above and underwater emergencies.
