Bethlehem Township Volunteer Fire Company (BTVFC) was started by a small group of citizens in 1946 who wanted to provide fire protection for their community. I am proud to say that we continue to carry on that mission today, more than 60 years later. Today we have just over 40 active members providing fire and rescue services to the more than 20,000 residents that call Bethlehem Township home. All of us have full time careers outside the fire company that vary widely, but we all share a common goal, helping our community. We each started our time here at BTVFC with little or no knowledge of what it takes to be a firefighter. The organization provides in house training as well as additional training from places like Northampton Community College, Bucks County Community College, Northampton County Fire School to name a few. The company also provides all of the equipment required to be a firefighter. We work hard to maintain a family atmosphere at the station.

We have many functions throughout the year that both members and their families attend. Some of the functions are held at the station and others take place at various locations away from the station. We operate two Class A pumpers, a heavy rescue, and a brush truck. We also have a rescue boat, 4-wheeler, a six wheeled gator, and two utility pick-up trucks. Each of these vehicles carries specialized equipment, like the Jaws of Life, that is used to protect the lives and property of the residents of the township. Many of our members are trained as EMTs and paramedics as well. We hold training sessions every Monday evening starting at 7PM. If you are interested in joining or just interested in visiting, stop by any Monday evening. We have a ride along program for township residents that want to see firsthand what happens when the alarm sounds. For more information on the ride along program please email us at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.. We attend many community events throughout the year as well. These are always a great opportunity to show off our skills and equipment to the residents of the township.

It does take dedication and hard work to obtain all of the training required, but you will find your time at BTVFC very rewarding.
