Cranberry Township Volunteer Fire Company

 We are a 100% volunteer organization established in 1959 providing fire and rescue services to the residents of Cranberry Township. The Fire Company created a unique agreement with the Township in 1981, which transferred the assets of the Company to Cranberry Township. As part of the agreement, the township provides financial support for building maintenance, equipment, and apparatus. In return the professionals of the Cranberry Township Volunteer Fire Company spend their volunteer time training, performing administrative work, and responding to emergency calls. This is a unique arrangement in southwestern Pennsylvania, and is a model of cooperation between local government and volunteerism.

Change Your Clock, Change Your Batteries
Saturday, 01 November 2014 16:22

Daylight Saving Time ends Sunday, November 2, 2014, at 2:00 AM when clocks are set back one hour.

The Cranberry Township Volunteer Fire Company would like to remind you that this is also a good opportunity to change the batteries in your smoke alarms and carbon monoxide detectors.  When alarms fail, it is usually because batteries are missing, disconnected, or dead.

Remember almost everyday a smoke alarm saves someone's life.



Halloween tonight!

Reminder: Trick or Treat in Cranberry Township is tonight from 6-8 pm. There may be a few excited little creatures running in the streets, so please slow down, especially in neighborhoods!

Senior Firefighters Honored
Monday, 06 October 2014 14:23

The outstanding service contributions of veteran volunteer firefighters Jim Cole and Chris DeCree to the Cranberry community were recognized with a resolution of appreciation by the Township's Board of Supervisors at its October 2 meeting.  Cole, a life member of CTVFC who currently serves as the Company's Chaplain, is certified as a Firefighter I, Driver, and Safety Officer.  He joined the Company in 1975 and led the effort to restore the fire company's original engine – a 1928 Pirsch pumper – to pristine condition.

Chris DeCree, who served as Company President for more than 15 years following a 30-year law enforcement career in the eastern part of the state, joined CTVFC in 1983.  During much of that time, his volunteer work with the Fire Company exceeded 2,000 hours a year – easily the equivalent of a full-time employee anywhere else.  His certifications include Firefighter I, Driver, and Fire Instructor I.  But perhaps his greatest satisfaction has come from educating thousands of children and adults in fire prevention and safety.
