***2019 UNDERCLIFF VFC ANNUAL CAR RAFFLE UNDERWAY!***


Now that we are approaching April and the weather is hopefully warming up soon, that means one thing...ITS CAR RAFFLE SEASON! This year’s car is a 2019 Subaru Crosstrek 2.0i Premium. Tickets are $10 per ticket and come with two numbers on the ticket! This year’s drawing will be on held Sunday July 28, 2019 on the evening PA Lottery Pick 4 number. If no winner is drawn on the first night we will keep drawing until a winner is determined. This is a guaranteed prize! Someone will win this car!


This is one of our company’s biggest fundraisers and all the money we raise goes right back into our mission of providing first class fire protection to our residents. We receive zero tax money here in Shaler, so we rely heavily on these fundraisers to purchase necessary equipment, tools, vehicles, gear, and other items that help us keep our members and residents safe. Thank you to everyone who has always supported our Car Raffle and other fundraisers! We sincerely appreciate your continued support.


Starting Tuesday April 2, 2019 Stop by the station anytime or see any member to get your tickets for a chance to win this beautiful car! Good luck everyone and thank you again!

RECORD BREAKING YEAR


This year has been nothing shy of busy for Undercliff VFC. In 2018, the men and women of Undercliff responded to 513 emergency calls for assistance. These calls ranged from house fires, building fires, vehicle fires, vehicle accidents, fire alarms, carbon monoxide alarms, odors of gas and other identified substances, and various other calls for assistance. We do not run any QRS/medical service so these are all fire service calls. 


Those 513 calls took a lot of time, dedication, and sacrifice by our members. We do not get paid for this. We leave our families at the dinner table when the pager goes off. We get out of our warm beds in the middle of the night when the pager goes off. And we do it all because we care and because we believe that public safety should be a top priority in our community. 


We do not get tax money here at Undercliff. We have to do our own fundraisers just to keep the doors open and to keep you safe. We need your help. We need members. And we need your financial support. Together, we make one team. We thank the community for their continued support, and look forward to another year of service!

2018 YEAR IN REVIEW VIDEO


This past weekend, the men and women of Undercliff VFC celebrated the holiday season with our annual Christmas Party. Part of that yearly tradition includes the unveiling of our "Year In Review” video. If you have been following along with us, you know it’s been one heck of a year! From all the flooding this year, to the many unfortunate building fires, to the many car accidents. Our members have responded to over 500 emergency calls which happen 24 hours a day, 7 days a week and have devoted thousands of hours of training to keep our community safe! And they put all these hours in FOR FREE to protect our community.


We wanted to share the video with you to show a glimpse of what all our members do, and remind you that we are always looking for new members. If you’ve been thinking about giving back to your community, stop up and see us! Whether you want to come and fight fires or just help out on the business side of things and raise money, we have a spot for you!


Thank you for all your support in 2018! We could not do what we do without all your support and the generous donations you provide us. All the money raise through fundraising and our annual fund drive goes right back in to supporting our mission of providing first class fire protection to our residents.


 

So thank you again and we look forward to working together with you in 2019!
