Why Donate to BMRF&E?

Your support of the Back Mountain Regional Fire & EMS is crucial to us fulfilling our mission of preserving lives and property in and around Dallas, PA. Without your monetary donations, we would not be able to provide the great service, using the most state-of-the-art equipment, to mitigate emergencies impacting your neighbors.

Your donations are used for the general operations of the Fire Company and pay for such items as our new fire station, firefighting turnout gear, vehicles, medical supplies, vehicle maintenance, insurance and a host of other items. The BMRF&E is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, and your tax-deductible donation allows our more than 40 volunteer members to perform their life-saving mission.

There are several ways that you can help support our mission.

 Annual Fund Drive

The Back Mountain Regional Fire & EMS conducts an annual fund drive each year via mail, usually in the Spring. Our fund drive letters are sent only to residents of our primary or “first-due” coverage area. We determine this by your physical address and not your zip code. Donations may be made by check and mailed. Please send your fund drive donation to:
