Allied Membership

 

Perry Hi-Way Hose Company has developed a new membership class to try and get some additional help to answer calls. The membership class is the allied membership. This membership is intended for those who already belong to a fire department or EMS agency. 

The Idea of this program was to allow members from other less busy departments the opportunity to come and run calls with us to gain experience and hone their skills, and at the same time help with our manpower shortage. 

We will supply all the necessary protective gear to the allied member. The gear will be kept in the station for use when responding on emergencies that require its use. It is our policy that all gear is kept in the station due to past members’ abuse of the gear and improper storage.

All members respond to the station to answer emergency calls. This limits to the traffic congestion at the scene and by responding from the station we can have the necessary apparatus respond to the incident scene. Even the chief officers routinely respond to the station to man the apparatus.

Allied members may respond to the station from home provided they live within a reasonable travel time to either of our 2 stations. For those members who live further away you can do stand by time in one of the stations and be ready to answer calls. If there are members that work in our area and can leave work to answer alarms that would also be a good reason to be an allied member.

Allied members must be in good standing with their home department and be attending training either with the home department or with us on our Monday night drills. To ride the ambulance allied members need to be EMT or higher. To ride the engines members need to have completed a state approved basic firefighting class, a structural burn class and pass an in house mask test with our MSA SCBA. To ride the rescue members need to have completed a PA state vehicle rescue class or be a BVR tech. Members on the rescue also needs EMS training to the emergency responder level or higher. All members must have current CPR and Haz-Mat at the operational level.

Allied members will be included in the per call stipend as well as eligible to participate in the paramedic tuition assistance program. The relief association accidental death benefit will also cover active allied members. This is a $50,000 life insurance policy that covers any accidental death / dismemberment 24/ 7 /365 on or off duty. You will also be covered while on duty with our life and disability policy.

Talk to any of the chiefs if interested in this program.
