“Get To Know Your Local Fire Department”
The Quakertown Fire Department is an all volunteer organization consisting of two stations, Quakertown Fire Company #1—Station 17 located on West Broad Street in Quakertown and the West End Fire Company—Station 18 located on Park Avenue in Quakertown.
The Quakertown Fire Department provides fire protection and emergency response to all of Quakertown Borough, much of Richland Township and a small portion of East Rockhill Township. We also promote fire prevention through community involvement as well as through a partnership with local schools and day care centers.
Your Fire Department is also your first line of defense for: Homeland Security, Bio-terrorist Emergencies, Hazardous Materials Incidents, Special Rescue Emergencies, Disaster Management, Emergency Medical Services Assistance, Fire Police Services and Public Services as needed.
Your Fire Department is supported by donations from the municipalities it serves, from residents, and local businesses. Yearly, each the fire company will request your support through a fund drive mailing: Quakertown Fire Company #1—Spring Mailing, West End Fire Company—Fall Mailing. Your support of our fund raising events is needed and greatly appreciated. Our volunteers host many fund raising events each year like our Fire Department Carnival, Basket Bingos, Flea Markets, Craft Shows, Bingos and Raffle Ticket Sales. Just like your homes and businesses, costs continue to rise and your support provides us with the additional funds needed to operate.
Your Fire Department protects the assets and property of local, national, and even global companies located within its coverage area. Last year alone we responded to 661 responses, spending almost 8,255 man hours protecting families, properties and businesses. In 2012 your fire department responded to 438 Fire Responses, 62 Officer Responses, 133 Fire Police Responses and 28 Quick Response Service (EMS) Responses. A total of 13,466 volunteers responded to these emergencies.
