Did you know…
Fire police in Pennsylvania are volunteer fire company members and are sworn in by the mayor, borough council president, township supervisor, or the local district justice.
All fire police officers are sworn officers and when on duty display a badge of authority and shall be subject to control township police. Disobeying a fire police officer is the same as disobeying a police officer, sheriff’s deputy, state constable or state trooper and assaulting one is a felony.
