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, 108 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 two basic life support ambulances.

15 years later...remembering Ross.

Life Member Christopher Eno, December 26

15 years ago today, we lost a truly great man.

Not only was he OUR Fire Chief, he was a mentor to all of us as we started our careers, as well as a very dear and valued friend. I personally will never forget the lessons he taught me…as a firefighter, and as a human being. He was a very patient man, but if you screwed up, he would pull you aside and tell you about yourself as well.

He joined White Horse in 1942, and served faithfully until his death in 2008… Fire Chief, Assistant Chief, back to ... (Full Story & Photos)
