Welcome Mini-Pumper

Although the build process is complete, a multitude of tasks to need to be completed prior to placing the unit in service. Members will be working on equipment locations and operation of the Mini-Pumper, and will work with vendors to finalize final details.

This project encompassed many hours of planning, reviewing, and training. It wouldn’t have been possible without the dedication of our volunteer members and officers.

The Company also thanks Lower Allen Township Commissioners and township residents for their support of this project and continued support of the Fire Company.  This piece of equipment will be a great asset to the community and we look forward to placing it in service.
