The Upper Frederick Township Fire Company was formed by a group of concerned residents in 1951. The fire company operated from Gottshalk's barn until the fire house could be completed in 1953. The fire house has undergone renovations during the 2002-2003 year which are now completed. The fire company currently has three trucks: a 2001 Engine, a 1996 Tanker and a 1986 Brush Truck which has received numerous first place awards from the State Fireman's Convention for Best Appearing Brush Truck.
The Upper Frederick Township Fire Company is composed solely of volunteers who serve the community. Currently there are 25 active personnel serving the fire company in administration, fire fighting and fire police activities. Community support is vital to our organization. Anyone wishing to volunteer their time as a firefighter or as a non-firefighting support is welcome to stop in the fire house on Little Road on Monday nights at 7:00 PM.
