Safety Protocols

To aid in reducing risk of the spread of the Covid-19 the Paxtang Fire Company has restricted access to active running members and Current Officers. Thank you for understanding and we will update accessibility in the future. There is currently a sign in sheet for members to log in and out of the building in an effort to account for all interactions.


Our thoughts and prayers are with the family of the fire victims, the family of Firefighter Jerome Guise who lost his life in selfless service to his community, and the Mount Holly Springs Fire Department on the loss of one of their members.
