Akron Volunteer Fire Company

Akron Fire Company is an all volunteer fire company located in the heart of Lancaster County Pennsylvania. We serve as first due fire department for Akron Borough as well as portions of Ephrata & West Earl Townships. Our main source of support comes from our annual fund drive campaign. We strive to provide the best service possible to the residents of our community. Our members have trained in all aspects of firefighting and many hold additional training and certification in Vehicle Rescue, Hazardous Material Operations, CPR, Emergency First Aid and other specialized rescue services. We respond to an average of 100 emergency calls per year, and currently have approximately 45 active members.


On Wednesday, October 29th, Akron Volunteer Fire Company was visited by the 2nd grade classrooms of Akron Elementary School. The approximately 75 students and their adult chaperons were working on the What Makes A Community? portion of their social studies curriculum. The students participated in short fire prevention discussions, examined the many tools and equipment utilized by our firefighters as well as discussed the fire department’s role in our community. Thank you Akron 2nd Graders for allowing us to be part of your day! We hope we gave you a practical glimpse of what you are learning about in school.
