About Us

Monroe Fire Company is a 100% volunteer organization which proudly provides fire protection and emergency medical services to the more than 5,500 people living in Monroe Township, Cumberland County.

Founded in 1937 as the Williams Grove Fire Company, and with roots dating as far back as 1860, Monroe Fire Company operates out of a single fire station located just outside the Village of Churchtown. The fire company’s fleet of vehicles consists of an engine, tanker, mini-pumper, brush, and utility vehicle; as well as three chief’s vehicles and two water rescue boats.

Monroe Fire Company answers more than 250 incidents each year including non-emergency public assistance incidents, water rescues, vehicle rescues, and building fires. Our 26.5 sq-mile first-due area includes rural farmland, residential developments, the Appalachian Trail, mountain trails, a Class I railroad, and the Yellow Breeches Creek.
