Since 1922, The Castle Shannon V.F.D has provided the Castle Shannon Borough with fire protection service.

In 1993, the Castle Shannon V.F.D. merged with Baldwin Township's Rolling Hills V.F.D. and now provides fire protection to both neighboring communities.

Our fire department is 100 % volunteer and depends on the support of the community through donations and fundraisers to continue providing this fine service.

CORE VALUES

Service The preservation of life, property and the environment is our number one goal, with our focus on comprehensive delivery of public safety services regardless of circumstances. Our members are part of a family that values compassionate service, respectful behavior, strong character, diversity, dependability, and integrity. We will be visibly present in our community and are accountable for our actions and our core values in every interaction.
Integrity — The reputation of a firefighter as being trustworthy and someone you can always rely on in any situation is something that all firefighters are responsible to help maintain. We embrace moral character, integrity, and ethical behavior in all our actions and will be guided by fundamental fairness in everything we do.
Honor We strive to deliver a service that is looked upon in high regard. We will hold each other accountable while we actively mentor others and we will celebrate the achievements and successes of those within our ranks, displaying pride in self, organization, and profession.
Empathy -- We place duty before self, actively listen and commit to humanity and dignity as we serve our communities. Showing empathy helps us know how our actions affect others, what actions we need to take to be a good teammate, and it helps us understand more about the citizens we serve. We believe in helping.
Diversity -- We recognize that our success depends upon our members and the support of our community. We will respect each member of our team, our partners, the citizens we serve, and all persons we interact with by recognizing the diversity in each individual and their individual talents, skills, and contributions to our success.
