The department is currently using iPads in their apparatus to have QRP’s  (quick response plans) available to them when responding to an emergency.   These iPads allow firefighters to gain knowledge on subjects such as:  location of any hazards, power disconnects, heating units, or any people needing assistance due to any medical problems or disabilities.

Thermal Imaging
South Strabane Fire Department has (4) four Thermal Imaging Cameras that are in service.  These units allow the firefighters to see through smoke filled structures and to locate heat sources or trapped victims.

South Strabane Volunteer Fire Department #1 was established in 1956 with a station located at 1696 East Maiden Street, in the small community named Pancake.
Later, in 1960, South Strabane Volunteer Fire Department #2 was established on Oak Spring Road near the intersection of Locust Avenue and Oak Spring Road.
On January 1, 2005 the two departments merged to become one chartered organization. 

The South Strabane Fire Department will continue to commit an all out effort to train and grow with the same fast pace as our community.
