Please join us in Congratulating our Newest Certified Firefighter
December 8, 2022

Patrick Amerson has successfully completed Essentials of Firefighting (Firefighter 1) training at the Montgomery County Department of Public Safety Fire Academy. This week, Patrick graduated along with 34 other recruits of class number 2202.

Firefighter 1 is a 188-hour entry-level national certification course our firefighters must complete before they may fight fire inside a burning structure. In addition to various methods of fire suppression, recruits are also certified in hazardous materials operations, CPR and first aid.

Patrick moved to Phoenixville in 2019 and joined our department earlier this year. He worked diligently to complete this program in less than a year. Congratulations Patrick and thank you for choosing to serve your community!

We are a 'combination' department which means our team is a mix of paid and volunteer firefighters. We are always looking for new volunteers to serve as firefighters, fire police, medical responders or administration.
