Fire Protection

Towamensing Township residents' homes and properties are protected from fire through the dedicated services of Towamensing Township Volunteer Fire Company. They provide medical service (QRS - Quick Response Service) as well. The fire company and special fire police are staffed by men and women from your community. The Township officials encourage you to support them in any way you can.
