Welcome to the Lower Providence Fire Department

The Lower Providence Fire Department consists of two firehouses and nine apparatus, which provide fire protection to the residents, businesses, and visitors of Lower Providence Township. The department also provides mutual aid to Collegeville, Trappe, and Norristown Boroughs as well as Upper Providence, Upper Merion, West Norriton, Worcester, East Norriton, Skippack, and Limerick Townships. We are a 100% volunteer organization which raises money through our Annual Firemen’s Fair, Fund Drive, and other fundraising activities.

Incident Report

On January 17th at 6:12 pm, LPFD was dispatched along with Quint 46 and 322 for a building fire in the unit block of Woodlyn Avenue.

Chief 53 was the first to arrive and reported light smoke from the roof area. Quint 46 laid a supply line from a nearby hydrant and stretched the initial attack line while Tower 53 laddered the building and crews checked for the extent of the fire and assisted Quint 46 with opening up the impacted area.

The working fire dispatch was requested which brought additional resources from Stations 68, 61, 27, and 34.

The fire was found to be contained to an industrial collector/hopper on the front of the building without extension into the building. 

Due to the location of the fire, a significant overhaul was required which took approximately 40 minutes and the fire was placed under control shortly thereafter.

The Lower Providence Fire Marshal’s Office is investigating the cause of the fire.
