The Cumru Township Fire Department (CTFD) was created through Township ordinance in 2004 and is funded through a fire tax. Over the past several years, the Township and Fire Companies (Gouglersville Fire Company No. 1, Cedar Top Volunteer Fire Company, No. 1, and the Volunteer Fire Company No. 1 of Grill, PA.) have worked to streamline operations, functionally and legally. On July 1st, of 2010 the department officially became the Cumru Township Fire Department and the previous companies ceased to exist as emergency response organizations. The department currently operates with career Fire Chief, volunteer officers & firefighters, 4 career firefighters and a part-time training coordinator.
The mission of the Cumru Township fire Department is to provide the highest level of emergency services and protection to our Township from all hazards through education, awareness and dedication and service of a well-trained, efficient and effective force of volunteer and career fire fighters.
VISION STATEMENT The Cumru Township Fire Department will be a single, unified combination department consisting of dedicated, professional, well-trained volunteer and career staff members.
