Bethlehem Township Volunteer Fire Company (BTVFC) was started by a small group of citizens in 1946 who wanted to provide fire protection for their community. I am proud to say that we continue to carry on that mission today, more than 60 years later. Today we have just over 40 active members providing fire and rescue services to the more than 20,000 residents that call Bethlehem Township home. All of us have full time careers outside the fire company that vary widely, but we all share a common goal, helping our community. We each started our time here at BTVFC with little or no knowledge of what it takes to be a firefighter. The organization provides in house training as well as additional training from places like Northampton Community College, Bucks County Community College, Northampton County Fire School to name a few. The company also provides all of the equipment required to be a firefighter. We work hard to maintain a family atmosphere at the station.
It does take dedication and hard work to obtain all of the training required, but you will find your time at BTVFC very rewarding.
