Fire & Emergency Medical
Volunteer Fire Companies
Lower Pottsgrove Township is served by two all volunteer fire companies. They are the Sanatoga Fire Company and the Ringing Hill Fire Company. The firehouse, apparatus and all equipment are owned by the fire companies. Lower Pottsgrove Township provides a portion of their operating budgets. However, a great portion of the funding needed to operate and maintain them comes from community donations or is raised at events such as bingo, flower sales, dinners, craft fairs or bake sales by their men and women.
Fire company members provide the only municipal service that is run with volunteer labor. No one from either fire company receives any compensation for the time spent serving the residents and businesses of Lower Pottsgrove Township. In addition to responding to fires, the volunteers respond to rescues of all types, environmental hazards, and other threats to life or property in Lower Pottsgrove Township. Fire prevention education to the schools, residents and businesses is also taught by members.
Both companies strive to provide the resources needed for their volunteers to stay current with the latest techniques for handling emergency calls, stressing safety at all times while responding 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year. Residents are welcome to stop by and tour the stations Monday or Thursday nights between 7 and 9 p.m. Recently, Sanatoga Fire Company and Ringing Hill Fire Company were invited by PECO to take part in training necessary for their PA State Firefighter II certification at the PECO Fire training facility in Conshohocken.
