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.
