HUNTINGDON REGIONAL FIRE & RESCUE DEPARTMENT
The Huntingdon Regional Fire & Rescue Department was created by a merger of the Huntingdon Fire Department, McConnellstown Fire Company, and Oneida Township Fire Company. This merger took place January 1, 2010.
The Department has 105 active members serving over 10,000 residents of Huntingdon Borough, Oneida Twp., Henderson Twp. and Walker Twp. The new Department serves an area that encompasses more then 48 sq. miles. Our Firefighters and EMS personnel are some of the most trained in the area, providing Structural Fire suppression and Rescue, Technical, Vehicle, and Swift water Rescue, We also provide Wild land Fire suppression, Hazardous material operations level response, Medical First response and Fire and Safety Education.
We do fundraising throughout the year, to help with the cost of operating the Department which is over $400,000 a year. We also hold our annual fund drive to help with this total cost. By pulling the recourses of these 3 companies we will be able to continue to save money for the communities we serve. HRFR is a 501.C3 non-profit organization. We rely on public funds to keep the department running.
In the Future we are currently working on plans for a new Headquarters station for the Department to replace the McConnellstown station and to a have concentrated focus location for fundraising. The new facility will have a large banquet hall that will have a large capacity to handle all types of events. We currently have 3 locations that we can rent for all types of events. To find out more about what is available and available dates, contact Christy Muekel at 251-3696. For fundraising donations or information send to H.R.F.R. P.O. Box 5 Huntingdon, PA 16652
We are planning an effort to develop a strategic plan to guide us in delivering the best service our communities demand and deserve in the most efficient manner with equipment needed to get the job done.
