New Firehouse Opened In Lancaster Twp., PA

This article is a direct street report from our correspondent and has not been edited by the 1st Responder newsroom.

On June 8th, the members of the Lancaster Township Fire Department held a ribbon cutting ceremony to commerate the opening of their new $5.8 million dollar firehouse. The event began with Chief Roy, as well as board members, and County officials addressing the attendance about the new station and the process it took to complete it.

The new nine bay firehouse replaces both of the township's seventy plus year old fire stations and allows the department to consolidate into only one station. The new station is centerally located within the township along the Millersville Pike where previously the department operated from a north and south station located in residential communities. Other perks of the new quarters include more space both indoor and outdoor, drive through bays, larger social quarters (lounge/kitchen), and many more modern features the older stations were not able to offer due to size and/or construction.  

As the ceremony continued, the guests which included area residents, former and current members, mutual aid departments, and media were able to witness the American flag raising and the ribbon cutting with an individual ribbon being placed infront of all 5 front facing bays and cut by individuals directly involved with the new station. As the event concluded, guests were able to tour the new facility and speak with first responders.
