Welcome to the Official Website of the White Horse Fire Company

After a large wind driven fire destroyed much of the village of White Horse in September 1913, the Salisbury Township Fire Company #1 was formed in January 1914 to provide fire protection to the area. Emergency Medical Services were added in March 1958.  Today, 102 years later, as the White Horse Fire Company, we are a  100% VOLUNTEER Fire & EMS company providing "24/7/365" service out of our station in the village of White Horse, to Salisbury Township in Lancaster County, Pennsylvania, as well as surrounding communities through mutual aid in Lancaster, Chester, & Berks Counties...."Neighbors Helping Neighbors"

We staff two engines, a tanker, a utility/brush unit, and a basic life support ambulance.

A second basic life support ambulance will be entered into service in late Spring 2017.

New Temporary EMS Building

Firefighter/EMT Christopher Eno, May 02

If you have driven past the firehouse lately and seen the large shed-type building being constructed in the northeast corner of the parking lot, you may have wondered what it was for.

Due to our recent purchase of our 2017 Ambulance, and the decision to keep the old one, we have ran out of space in the current firehouse.

With future expansion in mind, the opportunity to purchase the house and property directly south of the firehouse presented itself. We purchased the property, but the need for ... (Full Story & Photos)
