Fire Department

The City of Lock Haven Fire Department is made up of two volunteer fire corporations:

  • Citizens Hose Fire Co. 5 located at 415 Bellefonte Ave.
  • Eastside Fire Rescue located at 124 E. Church St.

The Fire Department relies heavily on the support of volunteers who make up 80% of the workforce.  The City also employs 9 fire staff members (3 full-time and 6 part-time) who provide manpower at each station from 8:00 a.m. to 10:00 p.m. 7 days a week. On-call fire personnel cover the remaining hours. This system provides for a rapid response to any and all emergencies in the City at any time of the day or night.

Each district appoints two volunteer members to act on their behalf. The Fire Chief, by virtue, is the fifth member of the Board and acts as the City’s representative.
