About UsPrint this page
Citizens Fire Company #1 of Penbrook was founded on March 29th 1906. This organization came about from a group of public-spirited citizens. The first equipment of the fire company were two hand drawn wagons. These were housed in a barn as there were no firehouses available for this apparatus. The Citizens Fire Company #1 of Penbrook is located in Penbrook,PA just outside of Harrisburg City in Central Pennsylvania. We currently operate a 2004 American LaFrance Pumper Engine and a 1996 Freightliner/Darley Air Unit. Penbrook Borough is a 1 mile X 1 mile Borough that borders Harrisburg City and Susquehanna Township. We average between 200-400 calls a year with around 30 of them being confirmed working fires. We run mutual aid calls to Harrisburg City, Susquehanna Township, Swatara Township, South Hanover Township, Steelton Borough, and Paxtang Borough. We are 100% Volunteer as we rely on our dedicated volunteers to answer fire calls, run fundraisers, teach fire safety, ETC.
