Proudly serving Wrightstown, Upper Makefield and

Welcome to Lingohocken Fire Company website.

                                                                                            Profile of the Month

Profile of the month is going to be a regular column featuring a different Company Member each month. Each month we will feature a different Line Officer, Firefighter, Executive Officer, Associate Member or a Past Member of the Company, to highlight their career. There have been many people that have passed thru the doors of the firehouse, some briefly and some for a significant amount time, but all have left their footprint on the character and history of the Lingohocken Fire Company.

 

 

                                                                                    Chief Dave James

       The first profile is to introduce the New Fire Chief. Taking over the command of the Lingohocken Fire Company for 2015 is Dave James. Dave has been with the Fire Company for 20 years, moving up the ranks of the company, holding positions of Lieutenant, Captain and Assistant Chief.

        Dave is employed by Wrightstown Township in the road department. His background includes 4 years in the United States Army, where he acquired his drive to do a job right, to the best of your ability and seeing it through to the end. Dave has never been someone to stand back and watch. He has always been one of the members to be out in front of whatever the emergency is.

        In taking over as Chief, Dave states the hardest thing will be standing back and running the whole fire scene. Chief James states    " I believe in delegating jobs, because no one can do everything. I'm surrounded by a great group of Line Officers and a group of Firefighters that are second to none! We are a small department but have always been progressive and forward thinking. I hope to make the same great strides in moving the Company forward, that the other Fire Chief's before me, have been able to make."

        Dave resides in Wrightstown Township and is a father with 2 children.

Address Signs

Properly display your house numbers so emergency personnel can find your residence quickly. Lingohocken Fire Company, Police and Emergency Medical Services strongly encourage all residents to properly post their address.

To assist residents, the Lingohocken Fire Company has begun processing orders for blue reflective address signs that can be displayed near the street. They may be displayed either on a mailbox or a post in the front yard. If your mailbox is not located on your property, it is recommended to have the reflective sign posted on a post, at least 3 feet high in your front yard or at the end of the driveway so it is visible in both directions.

         - Signs are double sided, blue with white numbers on each side.

         - Signs are 6" by 18" with rounded corners and 3" numbers.

         - Highly reflective background and easily seen at night.

         -Rust and weather proof heavy gauge aluminum sign.

******Signs are $15.00 each and it includes mounting hardware******

To order send:   Name, Phone number, Street Address, want the numbers to be Horizontal (left/right) or Vertical (up/down) 

 Check made out to: Lingohocken Fire Company, PO Box 102, Wycombe, PA. 18980
