Santa’s Coming to town.

It’s starting to become closer to everyone’s favorite time of the year, Christmas!! It’s even our favorite time of the year because that means we get to drive Santa around on the fire truck!! This year Santa will be in the North Bessemer VFD Fire District on December 20th. We will keep posting reminders getting closer to the date. We hope we get to see everyone!!! Please share this post so everyone in Penn Hills knows when Santa is coming!


Ventilation Practices class

Saturday Dec 12 and  Sunday the 13th, Penn Hills fire companies participated in a Ventilation Practices class.

Firemen Appreciation Day

On Saturday, September 20th, The Rapp Funeral Home in Penn Hills held its Annual Penn Hills and Verona Firemen Appreciation Day. Volunteers and trucks from all the fire departments in Penn Hills and Verona came to the annual event, volunteers even provided a “man downed” situation for the visitors to see. People took bucket rides on Truck 7, while others climbed through apparatus and looked at the tools. We thank Bernadette from the funeral home for holding this event for us over the past year. Thank You!


Happy Holidays!

On December 22, Santa came to visit the kids of the North Bessemer Volunteer Fire Department District. Firefighters brought Santa around on the fire truck for all the kids to see him. We hope everyone got to see Santa. Remember, its always the Sunday before Christmas. December 21, 2014 Look for Santa again! We hope everyone has a very happy and safe holiday. Big thank you to all the members who helped cooked Christmas dinner for all the families!
