The Millville Community Fire Company Ambulance recently passed inspection and successfully received re-licensure from the Pennsylvania Department of Health.
Ambulance Services in Pennsylvania are required to be licensed by the Commonwealth and licenses must be re-newed every 3 years. The licensure approval and inspection process includes submisison of an application, training records, and other documentation along with an onsite inspection by a Department of Health Representive and the Seven Mountains EMS Council.
A team of both volunteer and paid EMS staff worked diligently during this process to assist and the fire company appreciates their efforts.
The fire company is also proud to be accredited by the Pennsylvania Department of Health to continue to provide quality Emergency Medical Services to the residents of the Millville Community.

A photo taken by Fire Company photographer Harry Watts has been selected by Geisinger Health Systems for use in the 2011 LifeFlight Helicopter 30th Anniversary Calendar.
The photo was taken at a July 1 2009 fiery MVA in Madison Township and also MIllville Firefighters Randy Watts, Jason Reichenbach, and Charles Dietterick along with an unidentified Washingtonville Firefighter. Ironically the photo was used for the month of July in the calendar.
The Millville Fire Company appreciates Harry's incident photos and the time he invests in publishing the pictures. His pictures have been used not only on this website but also for training, incident review, and documentation purposes.

A special meeting was held in September to discuss and vote on the purchase of a new ambulance.
A 2011 Medtec Type 1 Ambulance was ordered from Glick Fire Equipment. The Ambulance will be on a 2011 Dodge 4WD Diesel chassis. The new Ambulance should arrive and be placed in service in the Spring of 2011.
The company will be keeping the existing ambulance in service for at least a year to trial the need and use for 2 ambulances. The current ambulance was placed into service in June of 2000.
