Is York County a paid or volunteer fire and rescue department?
A combination of both. York County has a career (or paid) staff as well as a compliment of volunteers. All 6 neighborhood fire stations are staffed 24 hours a day, 365 days a year by the career department members. The volunteer members supplement the career staffing in the fire stations and often provide additional staff for special events and other duties.
