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, 102 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 a basic life support ambulance.
A second basic life support ambulance will be entered into service in late Spring 2017.
