The Mahoning Valley Volunteer Fire Company No. 1 is nestled in the quaint Village of New Mahoning, a few miles west of the town of Lehighton, Carbon County, Pennsylvania. We remain a dedicated group of volunteers proud to serve our community since incorporating in 1951. We work hard to continue the traditions established by our charter members and all who served prior to us providing residents well trained, well equipped, and well rounded emergency services response to Mahoning Township and surrounding communities.  A coverage area spanning 24.6 square miles of small business, big box retail centers, and industry dispersed amongst vast agriculture and quiet rural living, requires six pieces of apparatus standing ready to protect a wide diversity of response challenges, and ultimately the beautiful sights, sounds, and people of our wonderful community, including those who pass through it. We hope that you will stop by sometime to witness all that is good about volunteering for your community and encourage you to do the same.  Of course there is sacrifice, however the warm feeling you get deep inside knowing you took the initiative to build a better place to live and help your neighbors is well worth it.

COVID-19 Virus Pandemic - How it Affects us as Volunteers.
The global pandemic has been rough on all of us - remember, we are in this together, and together we will get past it.  In addition to creating more and more challenges every day to how we handle emergency calls for help, we also have been challenged on how to raise much needed funds to just keep us afloat.  While we have always prepared and adapted to our surroundings to keep ourselves safe on the streets, making sound financial decisions with limited income may be our biggest challenge yet. We are 100% volunteer depending upon donations and fundraisers to simply pay our bills such as heat, phone and electric.  While we understand your sources of income enabling you to pay these same type of expenses may be limited as well, now more than ever we can use your help.  This fire company was incorportated by some community minded individuals who literally passed a hat to collect funds for expenses.  We now symbolically pass the hat again in hopes that you may find a way to help us continue to be able to support our community when emergency situations arise.  We can't thank you enough for your ongoing and neverending support of our efforts.  Please be careful out there. Wear a mask. Wash your hands frequently. Maintain social distancing. Together we can get thru this. We remain on the ready to serve you, our residents.
Should you have questions or concerns please email us or call (570) 386-4302.

2020 MAIL FUND DRIVE IS IN PROGRESS

Please pay attention to you mailbox to find your annual mail fund drive letter.  This pass of the hat is vitally important to our bottom line and is your best opportunity to lend a big hand by a small donation.  If everyone could do a little, together we can do a lot !!  For those of us who choose to volunteer for our community, we thank you in advance for your much needed donation.  For clarity, we only ask for a donation from you once every year.  However, if we don't see a return donation, you will receive a reminder mailing in hopes you can help out.  Most importantly, please note that the return address for your donation is our fire house with our zip code 18235.  It has come to our attention that some other volunteer firefighter fund drives have been found in some local mailboxes.  Please note that if the return address is anywhere other than locally, we are not affiliated with that request and ask you to consider keeping your donations locally.  Should you ever have any questions, feel free to contact us at the information found on our contact page.
