Proudly Serving Quakertown Borough, Richland Township & East Rockhill Township
“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 Broad Street in
Quakertown and the West End Fire Company—Station 18 located on Park Avenue
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 municipalities it serves, from
residents, and local businesses. Yearly, each 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 appreciated. Our volunteers host many fund raising events each year like
our Carnival, Basket Bingos, Flee 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
675 responses, spending almost 19,739 man hours protecting families, properties
and businesses. In 2010 your fire department responded to 450 Fire Responses, 40
Officer Responses, 102 Fire Police Responses and 83 Quick Response Service
(EMS) Responses. A total of 12,480 volunteers responded to these emergencies.
