Spring Mill Fire Company
1210 East Hector Street, Conshohocken
A 100 year anniversary is not the only thing Spring Mill Fire Company is inviting the community to celebrate this year. In addition, residents, local officials and neighboring first responders are being asked to assist the fire company in “housing” its new fire truck. The festivities, which will include activities for all ages will be held October 14, 11 AM- 1PM on the fire company grounds, 1210 E Hector St. Conshohocken Pa.
Following tradition, Spring Mill’s new truck will be backed in three times by different drivers while local officials, past Spring Mill fire chiefs and firefighters assist by “pushing” the truck into the company bay.
This family-friendly event will include activities such as trying on firefighter gear, spraying fire hoses and drawing the new truck with sidewalk chalk. Refreshments will be provided.
VIPS to Share in the Festivities
The celebration will include reflections from Spring Mill Fire Company Chief Wayne Masters, State Representative Mary Jo Daley, Whitemarsh Township Board of Supervisors Chair Fran McCusker and Spring Mill Fire Company firefighter for over 50 years Paul Davis.
“We’ve had the honor of serving our neighbors for the past 100 years,” said Chief Masters. “We hope the community can come celebrate this milestone with us.”
100 Years of Courage, Commitment and Community
Spring Mill Fire Company started in 1923 when a dozen residents gathered to discuss the organization of a volunteer fire company. That same year officers were elected and Spring Mill Fire Company became official. One year later the community celebrated the housing of Spring Mill Fire Company and the earliest annual record showed that the fire company responded to 17 fires.
Flash forward to 2023, Spring Mill Fire Company has earned a stellar reputation for saving lives and protecting property. Volunteers responded to 236 alarms and 103 special service calls this past year and have committed over 5,670 hours ensuring the safety of Whitemarsh Township and neighboring communities. Within Montgomery County, Spring Mill offers one of the only two dive units trained to provide underwater search, rescue and recovery.
