LEO FIRE COMPANY IN RED LION, PA AND UNION VOLUNTEER FIRE COMPANY IN FELTON, PA ANNOUNCE MERGER OF THE TWO DEPARTMENTS.
A merger between the fire departments in Red Lion Borough and Felton Borough have been in discussions for eighteen months. Since May 2018 the membership of the departments have met regularly to review bylaws, operating policies, financial implications of the merger, and the new vision that was created by the merger board members with constant input from their department members. The firefighters have arranged combined training sessions each week to learn from each other and about each other.
We are proud to announce that Alliance Fire and Rescue Services, Inc., York County Station 77 (AFRS 77) was incorporated on December 1, 2019
The new company will cover approximately 19.5 square miles which includes six (6) municipalities. Services will continue to be provided to Chanceford Township, Felton Borough, North Hopewell Township, Red Lion Borough, Windsor Township, and York Township. AFRS 77 will continue to provide services out of all stations that are a part of our two departments. Alliance Fire and Rescue Services, Inc. will have a combined firefighter force of twenty-four (24) active firefighters, and over fifty (50) active volunteers who help to support the fundraising, administration, and building & grounds maintenance for the department.
It is the intention of Alliance Fire and Rescue Services, Inc. to use its combined efforts to improve its training and support for its firefighters. It also hopes to bring new volunteers into the department by enhancing its recruitment efforts over the entire geography that it now serves.
The Mission is a critical piece of the new department’s vision for the future.
“Working as ONE, with the highest level of training and professionalism, in order to preserve life, property, and the environment by providing protection and safety to the community.”
Alliance Fire and Rescue Services has also acquired the Fiddlers Association property on Main St Ext in Felton.
