This week, Edgewood VFD had the privilege of earning not only one, but two elite certifications in the state of Pennsylvania.
We are now certified at a "Master Pediatrics" level, certifying that we can medically take care of children at a higher level than most. This became especially important for us last year as members of our QRS (Quick Response Service) delivered a healthy baby girl on Lloyd Avenue.
We are also certified at the "Silver" level through the state Fire Commissioner's office, something that less than 10 departments in the county have. This certifies that over 75% of our firefighters are nationally recognized at a "Firefighter 1" level (most are actually Firefighter 2) and have a more consistent level of training than the state offers.
We continue to strive to prove that we take training and operations very seriously!
