To the Community we serve,

Since the beginning of January 2022, we have been working diligently at building the foundation for a regionalized fire and EMS company. We are excited to announce that on September 11, 2023, the Kinzer Fire Company and Gordonville Fire & EMS merged to provide emergency services to the community as Station 40, Pequea Valley Fire Department. As of today, September 28th, at 2pm the Lancaster County 911 center has officially retired the individual station identifications of Gordonville Fire and EMS Station 43 and the Kinzer Fire Company Station 45 and placed the Pequea Valley Fire Department Station 40 in service. Both companies will continue to serve the community's needs from their current locations with no services being interrupted.

As we interact with you and many people who travel through our area, we recognize that things are changing at a fast pace. The needs of our community and how we respond to them have been one of these changes and we find ourselves needing to be more proactive in how we move forward with providing emergency services. Price increases, the decrease in the number of volunteers and current events are just a few of the reasons that working together would benefit everyone we serve. As we join together as PVFD, we will be able to collaborate better within Fire and EMS incidents, have more opportunities to train together, and we will have better purchasing power as we make the necessary purchases for multiple stations. Our desire is to have what we need in order to tend to most emergencies without wasting money on duplicate purchases of apparatus that a neighboring company may already have and not promoting the construction of multi-million dollar buildings that are all within a few miles from each other. Depending on what type of fire apparatus, it could cost over one million dollars and a new ambulance could cost over four hundred thousand.

With this in mind, we wanted to let you know that we are still going to hold our community sales and other fund raising activities at both Kinzer and Gordonville locations. We appreciate all of the support throughout the years and we look forward to developing the relationships even more while we move forward as PVFD. If you are interested in how we operate, want to visit one of the locations or want to know how you can get involved with EMS or Fire service to your community, please contact us at 717-768-3869.
