Monroeville Volunteer Fire company in need of paramedics, live ins

Lillian DeDomenic | For The Times Express
Monroeville Volunteer Fire Department No. 5 has been operating a successful live-in program for years. Volunteer firefighters relax in the lounge area of the station.

Monroeville Volunteer Fire Company Station 1 is in need of paramedics on all three shifts.

The department is also seeking candidates for its live-in program. Individuals accepted into the program live at the station in its bunk room, get training and the opportunity to receive a scholarship to Community College of Allegheny County.

Live-in applicants must be over 18, in college or working full time. Applicants must also have Pennsylvania Essentials of Firefighting certification and get emergency medical technician training within a year.

For more information, call Mason Beltz, the station’s vice president, at 412-848-3322 or email [email protected]. Application for membership in the company can be found at at:

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
