Wednesday, December 6, 2017  Today we received a special phone call from the North Pole with a request to tour the Manoa area on Monday December 18th in the Green Area starting at 6pm and Tuesday December 19th in the Red Area beginning also at 6pm. Santa has many streets to cover so please listen up for his sleigh bells. You may message us here during our tour and we will try to give best time of arrival to your neighborhood. If you have large groups of children on your street we have found meeting us in the intersections work best. We will only be able to cover the Manoa Section so if you message us from outside unfortunately we will not be able to cover it. Happy Holidays from Manoa Fire Company.

Friday, February 24, 2017  On February 24, 2017 Manoa Fire Company was recognized by Pennsylvania State Fire Commissioner Timothy Solobay for attaining the 75% recognition level as part of the Participating Department Recognition Program. The program recognizes departments that support, promote and encourage their emergency response personnel to voluntarily certify in accordance with nationally recognized and sanctioned Professional Qualification Standards. Recognition at this level means that over 75% of our volunteers are currently certified within one of the accredited levels of the Office of the State Fire Commissioner Certification Program.

With this recognition Manoa Fire Company has demonstrated its commitment to providing quality services to our residents. Manoa Fire Company has maintained the 75% recognition level continuously since 2005 while the time and training requirements to achieve these certifications has steadily risen. Several members who were already certified under the requirements of the program reaffirmed their commitment to our mission by attaining certifications at more advanced levels. The entire membership of Manoa Fire Company is proud of this achievement. Chief Michael Norman and his officer staff would like to commend and congratulate the members who made this significant accomplishment possible.

Tuesday, November 8, 2016  Holiday Wreath Fundraiser Update. We first want to thank so many of you for supporting our Holiday Wreath fundraiser for many years. Residents in our local may be wondering why they have not received an order form this year. Since the fundraiser's inception we have partnered with the operator of the Don Guanella property's tree and wreath sales. Due to the sale of the Don Guanella property our partner will no longer be able to sell trees and wreaths there anymore. We unfortunately will not be selling wreaths this year, but plan to be up and running again next year. Thanks for your support!
