Dear community member,

The Newtown Square Volunteer Fire Company depends almost entirely on financial backing from the community we serve. Your annual financial support is vital to meet the cost of operations, building maintenance and vehicles. Your tax-deductible contribution helps to provide fire protection, fire police, rescue, ambulance assistance, and a host of other emergency services. Last year our volunteer members of the fire company gave more than twenty thousand hours of service to the community. That is the equivalent of ten full time employees!

Two examples of major cost items include people and vehicles. Beyond the training and equipping of volunteers, it is necessary to supplement our volunteer staff with paid firefighter/EMT's to ensure a 24 x 7 level of response.  Another key fiscal consideration is the cost of fire fighting vehicles. Sophisticated fire trucks cost in the range of $200,000 for an engine, to $1,000,000 for a ladder truck.

Clearly, the fire company must deal with the same financial challenges as other organizations. Your generosity enables the fire company to maintain our capabilities.

We are asking you to “invest” in your local volunteer fire company, so our community can continue to enjoy the best emergency services possible. Please consider us in your financial planning. Donating is easily done by clicking on the “donate button” on the left to use a credit card, or your PayPal account. If you prefer to donate by check, you may do so at any time. Our address is: Newtown Square Fire Co. #1, P.O. Box 453, Newtown Square, PA 19073-0453
