Clearances for Volunteers

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. 

1-Pennsylvania State Police Criminal Record Check

2-Pennsylvania Child Abuse History Clearance

3-Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) Criminal Background Check  

Completed Arrest/Conviction Report and Certification Form

Completed Volunteer Verification Form for Exemption from FBI Clearance

It was announced recently that the fee has been waived for the Pennsylvania State Police clearance and

the Pennsylvania Child Abuse clearance for volunteers only.

All clearances are submitted to the Office of the Fire Chief - 29 South Potomac Street
