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.

Tanker 49 recieves lighting upgrade

Firefighter/EMT Christopher Eno, June 06

Recently Tanker 49 received an upgrade to its lighting systems.

Most of the Tanker's old style incandescent and halogen lights were replaced with light emitting diode (LED) lights. Included in this upgrade were the body clearance lights, rear lights, flood lights, and red emergency lights.

While LED lights do have a higher initial purchase cost, they provide a savings over time; as they are more energy efficient and have a lower current draw on the electrical system and have a much longer bulb ... (Full Story & Photos)
