The Keystone Regional Fire & Rescue Dept. needs your help!

The Keystone Regional Fire & Rescue Department is a volunteer non-profit 501(c)(3) organization that depends upon the generosity of our communities, grants, and donations to support our operating budget. We use this money to purchase and maintain equipment, tools, gear, and apparatus. Part of our budget each year also goes towards training that helps us respond to calls quickly, efficiently, and safely.

There are many opportunities available for you to support our fire department. Your donations are tax deductible and will go towards providing vital emergency services to your community.
