We are an all volunteer organization chartered February 14, 1945 and still dedicated to preserving life and property from fire and other hazards in the villages of Shawnee-on-Delaware and Minisink Hills and surrounding areas. As we celebrate 75 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. We are volunteers proudly protecting where we live, work, and play.

Being an all-volunteer department requires our members to raise funds in order for us to operate efficiently. The same people who fight the fires are the ones who help serve food at dinners, staff our events, and live/work within the community. Your contribution today helps us serve you better. Thank you!

Improving our fire fighting capabilities


Improving our fire fighting capabilities

We have purchased a new tanker to improve our fire fighting capabilities. Our previous tanker was a 1991 GMC tanker. We appreciate your support through tax-deductible donations to Shawnee Fire Company. Donations are accepted via mail or via PayPal.

Fundraising

Being an all-volunteer department requires our members to raise funds in order for us to operate efficiently.

We appreciate the support of our community and major contributors: Ski Shawnee and the Shawnee Inn & Golf Resort.

The company's operations are supported in part by funding from the municipalities it serves, rental of the social hall, monetary contributions, and events.


Please note that we are currently not holding activities in our social hall due to COVID-19 related precautions. Some of our planned fundraising activities have been effected; see below and watch for updates as conditions change and regulations evolve. We appreciate your support through secure donations via PayPal or by check sent to the Shawnee Fire Company.
