How is your Fire Department organized?
Our fire department is comprised of two organization structures. For firefighting, we have a Fire Chief, Assistant Fire Chief, Deputy Fire Chief, two Captains, and four Lieutenants. Our apparatus maintenance is overseen by a Chief Engineer and two Assistant Engineers.
Administratively, the department as a whole is governed by a Board of Directors led by a President, Vice President and Financial Secretary. A Recording Secretary keeps a record of all meetings held by the department.
We also have a Relief Association whose statutory purpose is to administer benefits to members who were injured in the line of duty and to purchase safety equipment to prevent line of duty injuries.
Are you a non-profit organization?
We have been officially recognized by the Internal Revenue Service as a 501c3 Non-Profit, Tax Exempt Organization.

How much of my tax dollars go to Broughton?
We are constantly raising funds for operating expenses and equipment replacement in order to keep your tax burden to a minimum. In 2004, South Park Township graciously agreed to provide the department $5,000 to partially cover the cost of purchasing Personal Protective Equipment which protects our firefighters.
The township also provides: fuel, vehicle and building insurance, a portion of an accidental death benefit insurance policy, workers compensation insurance and a great working relationship!
Who does your fund raising?
Broughton Volunteer Fire Department members perform 100% of the fund raising activities for the organization.
When does your Department Train/Drill?
Our drills are on the 2nd, 3rd, and 4th Tuesday nights of each month from 7pm till 10pm. Some on what we drill on are hose line advancements, vehicle rescue, ventilation, Haz-Mat, and much much more. These drills are made up from the B.V.F.D. Training Committee. We are always ready to expand our experience/skills, because our #1 Priority is our safety and the safety of the South Park Twp. Residence.
