UMT Fire Departments



Upper Macungie Township citizens and businesses are protected by three highly-trained, well-equipped, VOLUNTEER Firefighting and Rescue Companies operating from stations strategically located throughout the Township. These three dedicated firefighting companies cooperate on a regular basis to ensure the safety of our residents, travelers and property. They are on-call 24/7 and have a proud history of heroic service backed by ongoing training and support from Upper Macungie’s municipal government, businesses and citizens.

GET INVOLVED! All three fire companies, being volunteer organizations, are always looking for great individuals who are hoping to make a positive difference in their community. There are so many ways to volunteer besides being a Firefighter! Along with serving our citizens and businesses for several decades, each are also very active in the community and play an important role in the social and fundraising activities happening throughout the calendar year!
