Fire Service Certification
On March 30, 2005, the Goodwill Fire Co. #1 received its recognition from the Fire Certification Advisory Committee of the Office of the Pennsylvania State Fire Commissioner as a Participating Department of the Fire Service Certification Program. To receive this recognition, we had to meet or exceed the 10% level of members who are certified to the National Professional Qualifications Standards level (Firefighter I or higher). Our goal was to meet or exceed the 50% level by the end of 2006, and on March 17, 2006, the Goodwill Fire Co. #1 received its recognition letter from the Fire Certification Advisory Committee at the 50% level. Goodwill Fire Co. #1 is the First, ALL VOLUNTEER company to receive the 50% or higher level in York County. We were recently re-certified as a participating department on June 17, 2013. We are proud of the members who have gone above and beyond, and worked hard to achieve such an upstanding certification. This is a memorable moment for us and a large accomplishment for an all volunteer company. Keep up the great work guys!
