Fire Protection Services
About Our Fire Protection Services
Media Borough does not have an internal Fire Department. A combination fire company, the Media Fire, Hook & Ladder Company No. 1 provides fire protection services to the Borough of Media and emergency ambulance service to Media, Upper Providence Township, portions of Rose Valley Borough, and Nether Providence Township. The company responds to approximately 330 fire calls and 2,200 ambulance requests annually.
In addition to offering emergency services, the company offers community services such as tours of the fire station, lecture and demonstration programs on fire prevention; smoke detector installation and battery checking for Borough residents; and consultation on home escape planning, smoke detector location, fire extinguisher selection and placement, and other elements of personal fire safety.
The fire company is always looking for new members. If you are interested in volunteering to help your community stop by any Tuesday night to pick up an application
