Welcome to the online home of Penn Township Volunteer Emergency Services. More commonly know as PTVES, we are located in the southwestern portion of York County. PTVES is a volunteer organization that provides fire, rescue, EMS, and SCUBA services to the citizens of Penn Township. PTVES is part of an important network of emergency services in our community. The other organization that we work side by side with include: Penn Township Department of Fire Rescue (IAFF Local 2045), Penn Township Emergency Services Board (Career EMS providers), Penn Township Fire Police, and the Penn Township Office of Emergency Management. In addition to Penn Township, we also have a mutual aid agreement with the Borough of Hanover to provide supplemental fire service to the Hanover Fire Department and equally share use of the same fire chief. Additionally, PTVES provides full EMS coverage to the citizens and businesses of Hanover Boro.
