Unit Citation

Many of the Newtown Square Fire Company activities have only the short public notice as the apparatus responds to the emergencies. From time to time, these emergencies become true tests of the training and experiences that have become earned through education and activity.

During the near midnight evening of Tuesday, November 8, the Newtown Square Fire Company was dispatched to an assist in a residential fire in the 1000 block of Cedar Knoll in neighboring Edgmont Township. In addition to full fire ground services, special building-saving activities earned for responding crews a special recognition- a Newtown Square Fire Company Unit Citation.

In the assembled activity held at the Newtown Township Board of Supervisors Meeting on Monday, February 27, the presentation of a Newtown Square Fire Company Unit Citation for the crew members was shared with the media, family, and the community.
