WHY VOLUNTEER?
Helping his community in times of need is a calling that Tony has had for nearly three decades. Like so many of his generation, he was first introduced to the fire service by watching the television series “EMERGENCY!” and calls of fictional Company 51. The show was produced when the roles of both fire and ambulance services in the U.S. were expanding and changing to meet the needs of the communities which they served.
As his six-year old grandson, Brantley, stated in response to a question he was asked, “teamwork makes the dream work, Pops!” Teamwork is the at the core of all Tony does in each of his volunteer roles. Whether it be mentoring, teaching, learning or responding, he knows first-hand that things are accomplished best when they are done as part of a team. He admits that he loves the challenge he gets from figuring out the science behind the emergency and how to “right” the “wrong.” Tony has been a volunteer in emergency services since 1993, serving as a firefighter, Emergency Medical Technician and as a member of the National Ski Patrol. He also served proudly along-side his son, Josh, as a wildland firefighter. He previously volunteered with Milton Volunteer Fire Department, White Deer Township Volunteer Fire Company, Nittany Wildland Firefighters and PA Department of Conservation & Natural Resources, before joining Camp Hill Fire.

FAVORITE ACTIVITIES
When not in the Borough of Camp Hill, Tony enjoys spending time with his family. They share the love of the great outdoors, including riding ATV’s and jet skiing. Tony is also a snowboarder and is on a board when volunteering as a ski patroller. Spending time at his family’s cabin in Union County where he can watch wildlife and the star-filled night sky also tops his list of favorites.

Meet Volunteer Firefighter Joe Reilly

WHY VOLUNTEER?
Since starting to volunteer in my home town in 2006 before coming to Camp Hill, I am now coming up on 14 years with CHFD.

I have always been interested in becoming a firefighter. Grew up around the fire house. My father and grandfather were both firefighters in Merrimac, MA. Between that and my passion for helping people, there is no better way to try and help someone when they are having their worst day. I enjoy being an active member of the community and the brotherhood/sisterhood that comes with it. It’s a rewarding thing to do. A lot of hard work, but a lot of fun and the group of people involved make it all worth it.

Rank/Certifications:
FF1, Incident Safety Officer, Relief Association Treasurer
(Previous positions –Lieutenant , Relief Association Board Member, Fire Department Board Member)

FAVORITE ACTIVITIES:
I enjoy hanging out with family and friends. Love being outdoors and traveling. Cannot wait to travel again.
