Who It Benefits

The Plumsteadville Volunteer Fire Company is an entirely volunteer fire department providing professional services to portions of Plumstead and Bedminster Townships as well as supporting all surrounding fire departments as mutual aid. The volunteer members run on average 325 emergency calls per year that range from house fires, auto accidents/extrications, domestic rescues, brush fires, carbon monoxide and fire alarms and much more.

All proceeds from the Blaze of Glory 5K go directly to the fire company. The budget of the Plumsteadville Volunteer Fire Company is 52% funded by Plumstead and Bedminster Townships. The remaining 48% is raised by our members through fundraising events and donations. Money raised goes towards much needed safety equipment. For example, to outfit a single firefighter with basic safety gear will cost over $3,500.00. This cost does not include the cost of an air pack which is an additional expense of $6,500.00. To replace a fire truck can cost between $350,000 and $500,000.
