April 2012, the Harborcreek Township Emergency Response Unit
began assisting the three fire departments in Harborcreek
township (22-Harborcreek, 24-Brookside & 26-Fairfield)
with emergency responses during daytime hours. The team
consists of township employees trained to a minimum of first
responder and fireground support levels with some members
possessing EMT certification and interior firefighting
Unit 237 is routinely used for code
enforcement duties or is housed at the township building.
When requested the team responds with their vehicle to
either the scene of an emergency or to one of the township's
fire stations where they staff or even drive apparatus.
As of August 2014, the unit is
licensed as a PA DOH Quick Response Service.
