The Volunteer Fire Company serves all of Hepburn Township and parts of Lycoming Township in its first due coverage area. We also serves as a mutual aid department to Loyalsock Township, Trout Run, Old Lycoming Township, Ralston, and many others. Our fire company provides fire suppression, rescue operations, and emergency medical services among many others to our communities.
The Hepburn Township Volunteer Fire Company seeks to provide protection and safety for our citizens and visitors by preparing and promoting fire prevention, education, and by preserving life, property, and the environment through fire suppression, rescue operations, emergency medical services, and the correct handling of hazardous material incidents while at the same time, recognizing our people as the key to success in a "World Class Organization."
Hepburn Township Volunteer Fire Company thanks the citizens of Hepburn and Lycoming Township for their support of our fire company! Without you, what we do would not be possible.
