GREAT START TO THE YEAR

Just a reminder to our neighboring companies that you will still hear Company 19 apparatus and box numbers until Cumberland County DPS is able to make the appropriate changes.  The line officers will be using their Company 17 designations.  Thank you for your understanding during the period of transition.

 

HAPPY NEW YEAR AND HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO US!

Visit our 'Officers' and 'History' pages for some updated information.  Best wishes to everyone for a happy and prosperous new year! As always, think smart and stay safe East Pennsboro!

 

CONSOLIDATION OF SERVICES

The West Enola (Company 19) and Midway (Company 17) Fire Companies are
proud to announce the merger of our two companies, effective January 1,
2014, to form Enola Fire Company No. 3 (Company 17).   Recent demands on
emergency responders have left membership rosters declining steadily for
decades.  Feeling this pressure, the memberships of our two organizations
set out to combine forces so that we can continue to serve the residents of
East Pennsboro Township and the surrounding communities.

What this Means for Residents:

At this time, no fire stations will be closing and residents can expect to
see no changes in services rendered.  We will be focusing on cross-training
members and providing increased response to emergency incidents at this
time.  We also will able to save taxpayer money by reducing duplication of services.

We are excited to take this next step in our professional journey and we

thank you for your support.


Sincerely,


The members of the new Enola Fire Company No. 3.
