There are a total of two departments,not 12 that have first due in West Hempfield Township.

West Hempfield Fire Department(Station 7-6) was formed on Jan 1 2000 from the Ironville and Silver Spring Fire Companies.

Mountville Fire Company(7-15) also has a small section of West Hempfield Township, along with having first due in Mountville Borough and Manor Township..

Hope this helps..

http://cms.firehouse.com/content/article/article.jsp?id=62092&sectionId=46

here is where i got my info.  my apologies if it is incorrect.  maybe i am reading it wrong.

3/4 way thru the article.... where they mention the 15k in fire co. funding. 

for the record... i thought 12 seemed a little high, but i always a lot of lancaster co's running together so you never know. 

i wanted to use the article info for comparison to our current situation in my district of bucks co. 

thanks for clarifying.

i stand corrected on the actual names involved.  that's what happens when you read at 11:30 at night i guess.

"The agreement called for the township to withhold $5,000 of the annual $15,000 stipend it gives to each of the dozen township volunteer fire departments. The supervisors would use the money to buy a more traditional-sounding alarm that wouldn't upset residents. Hempfield agreed to pay for the installation. "

"If West Point is dropped from the dispatching system, Saunders said, residents of the housing development would have to rely on fire protection from the Dry Ridge Volunteer Fire Department in Unity, about a mile away. "



that is the quotes that had me almost freak out...lol.

thanks for clarifying this guys.  i appreciate it.
