History

The initial meeting held on October 27, 1925 in the home of Harry Gross was for the purpose of organizing the Glendora Volunteer Fire Company #1.

Prior to this date the Glendora men had been members of the Chews Landing Company that answered calls in the Glendora area. On November 25, 1925 the first officers were elected and it was decided that Tuesday night would be the time to meet and is still the meeting night of the company.

The first ground purchased by the fire company was the 80’ x 100’ lot on Seventh Avenue for $ 900.00 dollars the first Chief was elected on December 29, 1925. On January 7, 1926 the Incorporation papers were completed and in July the by-laws were accepted.

Back in the day we knocked down a lot of fires with that old mini pumper

Nice

Very cool looking

This is so cool!

I like the old one better

Very nice piece of Fire Apparatus

Nice brush truck

Would love to own that truck

The 1 at the bottom will never last as long as the other .lol best of luck with unit

Very nice and the new one on the bottom is ABSOLUTELY Gorgeous.

We run a very similar mini pumper in Carling, ON. Love it! Super versatile for tight Laneways to cottages.

I like the old

What is the weight of this car? looks interesting.

That international could out run any new pumper these days

Super cool idea, posting before & after pics of equipment!

I love the fact that departments like yours are going back to the mini pumper concept. Especially since manpower is a huge issue these days. My family served at station 19

That's really cool 😎, but it's missing something on that truck!

I'll take that Ole Cornbinder any day over that FORD POS

Nice

I would take to past against the new . Because I have noticed ever since Covid the quality of parts has really gone down . 

New truck looks sharp! Why put the work light like they did here? It blocks the light bar. Take down light on the light bar gives you similar light.

Old truck probably accomplished the same things just without air conditioning and a decent stereo.

More volunteers in Pa and other cities in this country

Cornbinder on top way more reliable

I remember the old 815 originally 811. Similar unit at Deer Park later at 13-7 and Relief in Mt. Holly, later sold to Delance. Only recently replaced.

How safe is your home?

Fire Prevention

Did you know?

Safety Tips

Most fire fatalities occur in your home.
Fire victims die of smoke inhalation, poisonous gases, or lack of oxygen, not from severe burns!
Cooking is the leading cause of residential fires and burns.
Careless smoking is still the leading cause of residential fire deaths.

Make sure your family has an escape plan.
Sleep with your door closed. A closed door provides safety against heat and smoke.
Install a smoke detector in every bedroom and change the batteries twice a year, use the time change as a reminder.
Crawl low in smoke. In a fire, the super heated air and toxic gases fill the room from the top down. These leaves a “Safety Zone” of breathable air about 12 to 24 inches above the floor.

Have everyone in the household listen to the smoke alarm, so they will be aware of what it sounds like.
Put matches and lighters out of reach of little ones.
