Rekindle the Spark: Rescuing PA's fire service together

There have been significant changes in fire and emergency services regarding staffing, funding, response types, health and wellness of responders, training, and industry requirements.

Title 35 was amended requiring the Office of the State Fire Commissioner to assist with statewide recruitment and retention efforts.

The mission of the Recruitment and Retention program is to assist the fire service in accessing various services in the Commonwealth and provide technical assistance to local fire organizations and local governments.
