We are looking for contestants for this participating in the Shavers Creek Valley Community Volunteer Fire Company’s Fire Queen and Little Princess Program. This program is all about being the face of the fire company. Your job, should you be chosen is to help promote the good work that the fire company does for the community. This is a great responsibility and one that is not to be taken lightly.
This year the Fire Queen and Little Princess contest will be held May 4, 2019 at the Shavers Creek Fireman’s Park. All contestants are asked to arrive no later than 9:15 to begin the interview process. At this time contestants are the only ones permitted to be in the building. We ask that all parents, guardians and spectators please come back at 11:45 to get seats for the crowning, which will begin promptly at noon.
The selected Queen and Princess will go on to represent Shavers Creek Fire Company at the County Fireman’s Convention in July. The Queen may also attend the Central District Fireman’s Convention in August.
2018 Fund Drive now underway.
If you can't Volunteer maybe help us in our fundraising, send a donation. If you don't receive a letter in the mail you can open it here. Please help us raise funds so we can continue to operate. This year the Huntingdon County Fire Chiefs Assoc. applied for a federal grant to buy radios for the counties new radio system. It was a combined grant for almost all fire departments in the county. We just received a denial letter on that grant, so now Shavers Creek will have to buy over $60k in new radio equipment out of our operating budget.
We are still in the planning stages for a new fire station. Our current station no longer meets the needs of the department, although it has served us well for many years our needs have changed. It is difficult to find apparatus that will fit in the doors, and we have very little storage room to keep and maintain our gear and equipment. The building needs some major upgrades that will cost more than what the structure is worth. The roof needs replaced, the foundation has no drain, and water seeps into the building causing mold and mildew issues. We have acquired a lot of property beside the current station and plan to build the new station there. Our goal is to start construction in 2021 our 75th anniversary.

Shavers Creek Fire Company is always looking for new people. However you don’t have to be a “Firefighter” to help. There is a lot that goes into your community fire department. The fire department is a small business, so it has all the things that go with a business. We have garbage bills, phone bills, and a lot of administrative issues. We are always looking for “Firefighters” but also have many needs for other talents, such as Fire Police, financial administrators, and skilled trades. We apply for at least two grants a year, organize all our fundraiser's, and maintain our buildings; our members who may also be "Firefighters" do all of these tasks. We often refer to members as "Firefighters", however not everyone performs firefighting duties. Please stop in and get to know how you may help. Our meetings are held on the 1st and 3rd Thursday of every month at 7:30pm in the Shavers Creek fire hall. We will be glad to see you there. fundraising volunteer
