Local fire companies consolidating service
MUNCY – Residents of Muncy Borough, Muncy Creek Township, Moreland Township and Anthony Township currently serviced by ambulances of Muncy Creek Community Fire Company and Keystone Hook and Ladder Company have been officially notified of the merger process of ambulance and quick response services into one fire department licensed by the Pennsylvania Department of Health under the new organization to be known as the Muncy Area Volunteer Fire Company.
Companies currently known as Stations 29 and 30 will be changed to Station 39 when the merger is completed. Officials reported Ambulance 29 will now be known as Ambulance 39, and Ambulance 30 will now be known as Ambulance 1-39.
The new company shall continue to serve all municipalities currently serviced independently with the same level of services they have offered for many years.
Due to a projected call volume, it has been determined two ambulances will continue to be needed to service the combined coverage areas at this time.
“We shall continue to staff the two ambulances in their current locations until such time as property assets are liquidated and a central station is built to house both units,” said Misty Flock, board member of the Muncy Area Volunteer Fire Company.
Current memberships of both companies will continue to be recognized and eventually formed into one membership for all municipalities.
Projected date to be officially recognized and dispatched for the new company is scheduled for April 2.
