Department of Fire Services:
Alert Fire Company: 767-1954
Emergency Dial 911

Fire Chief:
Daniel Hoff, YAUFR [ ]

The Department of Fire Services was created in February 1991, when an agreement was signed between the Alert Fire Company #1 and the Manchester Township Board of Supervisors, to cooperatively provide fire, rescue and quick response medical assistance services in Manchester Township with the volunteer members of the Alert fire Company and the career fire personnel employed by the township.

In May 1999 became stationed at the career firefighters to the newly constructed centralized township municipal services facility which houses a fire station at 3200 Farmtrail Road. The Alert Fire Company agreed to relocate an engine, ladder and rescue truck to the new facility, which will be operated by both career and volunteer firefighters. Alert Fire Company volunteers continue to operate the fire station located in Emigsville at 3118 North George Street with one engine and one service unit.

The Alert Fire Company uses volunteers to fulfill its contracted obligation to Manchester Township. In addition to active fire fighting, which includes continuous training, volunteers perform many other important tasks such as fund raising, managing the business affairs of the Alert Fire Company and maintaining the building and equipment owned by the fire company.

Manchester Township currently contracts chief management services from York Area United Fire & Rescue (YAUFR)

Any residents who are interested in volunteering time to the Alert Fire Company should contact Manchester Fire Chief Hoff at 767-1954.
