''Volunteers Wanted: Help Us Help You.'' 

Goodwill Fire Company #1

1 S. Main St., Jacobus, PA 17407

As an all-volunteer organization, the Goodwill Fire Company's success is dependent upon area residents willing to serve their community. As many may be unaware, the need for volunteer firefighters has never been more crucial. Similar to many other volunteer fire companies throughout the state, the Goodwill Fire Company is experiencing a shortage of personnel necessary to carry out our mission. 

Anyone willing to step up and become part of a team that will aid others in their time of need can contact us via a few methods:
1) Send us a message through our facebook page
2) Email the fire chief @
3) Stop by the station; the first Monday of the month is our company meeting

Becoming part of our team will not only give one the ability to make a difference, but also instill qualities such as leadership and the ability to be resilient in serious circumstances.

Everyone is welcome!
