For Immediate Release: Nov. 27, 2023
MILLCREEK, P.A - The Millcreek Township Fire Department (MFD) has sworn in nine full-time career firefighters to protect Millcreek Township. The ceremony took place on Nov. 27 in the Millcreek Township Municipal Building. All three supervisors were in attendance along with a crowd consisting of families, volunteer firefighters and other officials.
“I’m excited to get started serving the community,” said newly sworn Millcreek Fire Department Firefighter Joseph Albrewczynski.
The firefighters will be available immediately to assist with responses. They will work on a shift-based schedule to ensure responses are efficient across Millcreek Township.

The MFD plans to swear in more part-time firefighters later in 2023.
