An option available to members is the opportunity to live at the station. Live-in bunkroom members are responsible for meeting greater attendance and participation requirements in exchange to not paying rent. The station is under a mile from Lock Haven University nestled in the heart of downtown Lock Haven. There is also easy commuter access to Route 220 via Paul Mac Blvd. which is one block fromt the station with a 27 miles from Williamsport’s Lycoming College and the Pennsylvania College of Technology and 37.1 miles to State College, home of Penn State Main Campus. Another asset available to members living in the area or in station as a Live-in is that the Pennsylvania State Fire Academy is located in Lewistown, PA which is only a 51.6 mile drive.
The Bunkroom was constructed in 2014 with funding made available by the City of Lock Haven at the request of the company to better serve the community. The bunkroom opened its doors to the membership in December of 2014.
Live in membership have access to one full kitchen with plans to add ammenities in the future. Members also have access to a cable television and high speed internet provided by the company. Our department actively drills at the company and department level, often weekly, and all members have access to free training through the Pennsylvania State Fire Academy, Clinton County Fire Chiefs Association via Butler County Community College and Bucks County Community College.
Live-in members are expected to be more active within the department because they live here free of charge. Live-in members gain fire department experience exponentially faster than most other members because of the amount of exposure to different incidents they get.
Live-in members also, after a period of time have the oppurtunities to advance through the ranks of the company gaining leadership skills.
If you have any general or specific questions, feel free to contact us or stop into the station.
