The Blaine Hill Volunteer Fire Company (BHVFC) has a proud tradition of providing 100% volunteer firefighting and emergency response since 1932. That tradition and commitment to serving this Elizabeth Township neighborhood continues with re-licensure of their Quick Response Service (QRS) emergency medical unit by the PA Dept of Health at an on-site tri-annual inspection of their medical response vehicle on October 23, 2020—approved for another 3 years.

This rigorous inspection counts all of the emergency medical equipment and supplies aboard the vehicle, their operability and readiness, and their sterility and cleanliness to assure the public that when 911 EMS is called in the Blaine Hill Fire District, that competent, quality cross-trained firefighter emergency medical responders will also be on their way 24/7/365. BHVFC has 11 firefighters state-certified as emergency medical responders and technicians,3 paramedics, and 1 prehospital physician assistant, all of whom are volunteers.

“It’s another altruistic opportunity for our volunteer firefighters to serve the public,” said Bob Zirkle PA-C PHPE, the QRS Lieutenant who manages the medical unit.  He added “The QRS vehicle is stationed at the firehouse within 1 to 3 minutes driving time of every residence and business in our fire district. We can be a tremendous asset to the patient, their family, and the responding ambulance service at a very critical time.”

BHVFC does not bill any patient or the ambulance service for the emergency aid they render.
