Welcome to the Fame Fire Company of West Chester

The Fame Fire Company No. 3 is one of three 100% volunteer fire companies that make up the West Chester Fire Department.  The WCFD provides fire and rescue services to the residents of the Borough of West Chester, Thornbury Township (Chester County), and portions of West Goshen, Westtown, Birmingham and  East Bradford Townships.  The West Chester Fire Department covers approximately 26.5 square miles.

Fame Fire Company is the dedicated Ladder/Truck Company and Heavy Rescue Company for the West Chester Fire Department. The other two fire companies in the West Chester Fire Department are First West Chester Fire Company and Good Will Fire Company #2.  The specific fire apparatus responding to an emergency may range from a single piece of apparatus from one fire station to many pieces from multiple stations depending on the nature and location of the emergency.

Fame Fire Company is also an integral part of The Chester County Rescue Task Force. Fame is the lead company for swiftwater, trench and structural collapse technical rescue disciplines and operates in a support role in the rope/high-angle and confined space technical rescue disciplines. Check out the Chester County Rescue Task Force Facebook page for additional information.

Our firehouse expansion and renovation project is in the home stretch.
