Congratulations to Russ Vaughn, Rob Carter, Kenny Long , Josh Altamare and Dave Behrman for their completion of the BVR program and Todd Lunn for his completion of the SVR program! Additionally, Rob carter has finished his essentials program and has transitioned smoothly to active firefighter status. A few of our folks are currently enrolled in a Fire Fighter II program and should complete the program soon. Additionally, we had a large group of our members partake in a flashover simulator course and a structural burn session held at the Academy. As always, keep up the great work and forward progress!
Lastly, we would also like to welcome our newest junior member Harrison and Honorary member Nate Porter to the family!!

Welcome to the official Web Site of the Etna Volunteer Fire Department, Allegheny County, Pennsylvania Station 149. The purpose of this site is to educate our local community about who we are, what we do, and to encourage support. We are continually adding new information and features, so check back often.

It comprises of approximately 1 square mile of land consisting of residential, retail, and industrial property, as well as 2 major rail service lines, 2 highways (Routes 8 and 28), and a portion of the Allegheny River.
The Etna Volunteer Fire Department provides emergency services to the Borough residents as well as providing mutual aid services to our surrounding communities of Aspinwall Borough, Hampton Township, Millvale Borough, O'Hara Township, Reserve Township, Ross Township, Shaler Township, and Sharpsburg Borough.
We are proud members of the following organizations:

Providing Fire, Rescue, and Emergency Medical Services to our Community through Dedicated Volunteers.
Your emergency services in the Borough of Etna are not provided by paid firefighters. They are provided by 100% DEDICATED VOLUNTEERS who carry pagers, that when activated, interrupt a work day, family time, a warm meal, or even sleep. These volunteers put their lives on hold, and on the line, at a moment's notice to help those in need.
Our time and services are free, our equipment and training are not. We depend on your generous contributions to keep our facilities operating and our trucks in service 24 hours a day, seven days a week-
Think about it: What would you do if no one answered your emergency call?
