Bushkill Township Volunteer Fire Companyhttp://bushkilltownshipfireco.com/index.html
The Bushkill Township Volunteer Fire Company was established in 1959 by the realization of the need for fire, rescue & medical services. A group of dedicated citizens became our founding members, deciding it was time to create a volunteer fire & EMS company & raised the funds to purchase the first fire truck, ambulance & building by mortgaging off their homes. We currently consist of four divisions: Fire, EMS, Fire Police, & Ladies Auxiliary. The fire company, ladies auxiliary, & fire police are operated by volunteers, covering the 25.3 square mile rural township & its population of approximately 9,000 residents. We provide structure, vehicle, & wildfire suppression, search & rescue, rough terrain & motor vehicle rescue, basic & advanced life support. The fire company, including fire/rescue & EMS, also provide mutual aid services to surrounding communities when requested.
