This past year has been another very busy year for the West Reading Fire Department. While the number of emergency calls is typically the focal point of fire department reports, it actually only accounts for a small fraction of the hours put in by volunteer personnel to support the fire department. Several thousand hours are put in every year for training, maintenance, fundraising, and administrative duties.
We hope that you enjoy the report and find it beneficial in understanding the West Reading Fire Department. Please remember that the West Reading Fire Department #64 is run from the top down by a 100% volunteer staff that receives absolutely no compensation for their hours donated. These men and women sacrifice countless hours with family and friends to protect West Reading Borough and surrounding jurisdictions while asking for nothing in return.
