We also protect 4 miles of state route 283, 6 miles of state route 230 and 6 miles of the Amtrak mainline railway.
We consistently place in the top ten of busiest Lancaster County Fire Departments, placing 6th for 2008 with 682 incidents.
Our first due response is very diverse consisting of densely populated areas of the borough, suburban style developments, commercial/industrial areas and parks, and vast rural farm land.
We also regularly provide and receive mutual aid service to the following departments;
Rheems, Elizabethtown, Marietta, Maytown/East Donegal, Columbia, Bainbridge, Matersonville, Manheim, Hempfield, West Hempfield, Rhorerstown and East Petersburg.
Fire Department Mount Joy is a combination the former Friendship Fire Company (organized 1868) and the Florin Fire Company (organized 1947) which merged in 2001. We operate out of one station located at 111 New Haven Street in Mount Joy and operate a fleet of 8 units;
We are funded through various sources within the community we serve and strive to provide the most efficient service within these resources.
