Our History

The Community Fire Company, Landingville, was organized in May 1950 by a group of civic minded citizens. Reportedly, the first meeting took place in the Landingville School house with fifteen men present.

The old Reading Railroad building next to Burn’s Tavern was rented from the railroad and used as the first firehouse. The company’s first fire truck was purchased in October of 1950 from the Cressona Fire Co. #1 Cressona, PA for a price of $500.00.
