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.

New Year, New name!

Firefighter/EMT Christopher Eno, January 05

We are now known, officially and legally, as the White Horse Fire Company, as opposed to our former Salisbury Township Fire Company #1. Slowly but surely, you will see the name change reflected on our website, signs, station, as well as other things. Several reasons are due for this, but rest be assured we are the same group of 100% Volunteer men and women that have been proudly serving our community....since our forefathers formed the Company 102 years ago....
