We are a 100% Volunteer Fire Department providing fire protection and emergency services for the citizens of East Hempfield Township and surrounding communities since 1910.


As of January 1, 2012 Station 7-19 will be Station 6-9.  This change was made at the request of Lancaster County Wide Communications.  LCWC is requesting that all fire departments change to a two digit station number.


HFD started off the new year with a small get together for supper on New Years Eve with some of out mutual aid departments.  In attendance were station 7-5, 6-7, and 2-3.  Other departments were invited but were unable to attend due to prior commitments.  Food, fun, and camaraderie were had by all in attendance.  HFD is looking forward to working with al of our mutual aid departments in 2012.


On Friday crews from Hempfield Fire Department traveled to Middletown to pay our final respects to our fallen brother, Officer Ken Neidinger. Big thanks to New Holland Fire (station 3-9) for providing a stand by crew, while member were at the funeral

The members of Hempfield Fire Department would like to send our deepest sympathies and heart-filled prayers to the family of Officer Kenneth Neidinger and our Brothers and Sisters at the East Hempfield Police Department for their loss. Officer Neidinger will truly be missed.
