Welcome to the Official Website of the Salisbury Township Fire Company #1

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.  

For over 100 years, Station 49 has been a 100% VOLUNTEER Fire & EMS department proudly providing "24/7/365" service out of our station in the village of White Horse to Salisbury Township, 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.
