Fire Departments

The Downingtown Fire Department consists of two fire companies, the Alert Fire Company No. 1, established in 1887, and the Minquas Fire Company No. 2, established in 1908.

Both fire companies have a long and impressive tradition serving the residents of East Caln Township and the Borough of Downingtown.  The Downingtown Fire Department consists of over 130 dedicated men and woman volunteering their time to serve the community, risking their lives providing fire and rescue services along with Basic (BLS) and Advanced (ALS) Life Support ambulance Services.
