The Aspinwall Volunteer Firefighters' Relief Association is a non-profit organization established to afford financial protection to volunteer firefighters who suffer misfortune as a result of their efforts.

The Association receives state aid from a 2-percent state tax on fire insurance purchased by Pennsylvania residents from insurance companies incorporated outside of the commonwealth. These funds are used to pay for insurance to protect volunteer firefighters, purchase fire equipment and to cover volunteer training expenses.

The Aspinwall Volunteer Firefighters' Relief Association is a distinct separate legal entity from Aspinwall Volunteer Fire Department.  We meet quarterly in January, April, July and October at 7pm, on the second Tuesday of every month, in the Aspinwall Borough Council Chambers; and as often as necessary to conduct the business of the Association.

Our Current Governing Body and Members:

President Mike McCafferty

Vice President Dave May

Treasurer Nick Scheid

Secretary Patrick Glen Rockhill

Member Lee Albacker

Member Robert French

Fire Chief Gene Marsico
