The Shawnee Fire Company on Delaware provides volunteer services for fire calls, motor vehicle accidents,
water rescue, and medical emergencies as first responders within our coverage area and provides mutual aid to
The Shawnee Volunteer Fire Company was chartered on February 14th, 1945. The first station, which still houses a rescue truck, is attached to Worthington Hall/Shawnee Playhouse in the historic village of Shawnee on Delaware. The Fire Company acts as the trustee's of the Hall.
Since it's modest beginnings over 65 years ago, the Shawnee Fire Company has grown with the growing needs of the community it services. So much so, that in 1993, the new primary station was opened on Hollow Road. This location was chosen due to the proposed development in the valley so that the station would be centrally located.
The new station now houses (5) pieces of apparatus. 2 - brush trucks, 1 - tanker, 1 - engine, and 1 supply pumper. The building also houses a radio/officers room, engineers room, meeting room for its members, a fitness facility with cardio, free weights and various strength machines, and a complete rental facility that can accommodate up to 130 people with full kitchen facilities. Since the company is not fully funded by the municipalities it serves, the rental of this facility is critical to helping the company off set it's operating costs. Ski Shawnee and the Shawnee Inn & Golf Resort are also major contributors in services and support in helping the fire company meet its financial commitments.
The Company has always prided itself on purchasing and maintaining quality equipment to service the needs of residents and guests that live and travel through our unique village. Our professionally trained volunteers are outfitted with the best gear available so that they are prepared to serve in whatever capacity the situation calls for.
As we celebrate over 65 years in servicing the needs of the village of Shawnee, and in support of neighboring fire departments, we look forward to continuing to provide the level of service and professionalism that is expected of our company.
