Background Clearance Requirements for ALL Waynesboro Fire Department Volunteers
The Pennsylvania General Assembly amended the Child Protective Services Law several times over the past year. The most recent changes were made through Act 153 of 2014. As it relates to clearances, Act 153 now requires all current Pennsylvania public service employees and volunteers to obtain new clearances. There are three required clearances. The FBI clearance can be waived for volunteers only if you have been a resident of Pennsylvania during the entirety of the last ten year period. Parent volunteers must also complete an Arrest/Conviction Report and Certification Form, PDE-6004.
