Hatboro Federal Donates $25,000 to Warwick Fire Company No. 1
JAMISON, PA–Hatboro Federal Savings recently donated $25,000 to the Warwick Township Volunteer Fire Company No.1 for the organization's $2 million Capital Campaign for the construction of a new and modern firehouse.
"We are proud to step up and support this 100% volunteer community fire company whose dedicated members put their lives on the line to protect our citizens and property on a daily basis," says Hatboro Federal President and CEO Joseph J. Tryon. "Giving assistance to such a critically needed organization is part of what being a community bank is all about."
The current facility, located at 2390 York Road in Jamison, is almost 50 years old and the bank's donation will help Warwick construct a new building enabling them to meet all necessary National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) standards.
"When we moved into our current building, we were serving fewer than 2,000 residents, and now we serve more than 14,000," says Fire Company President Philip Ramos. "Our township is 11 square miles with a high density population of single family homes, industrial parks, farms and a busy shopping center. We need the best vehicles, equipment and space to accommodate the community's needs."
The Warwick Township Fire Company members responded to almost 300 calls in 2010, volunteering more than 4,600 hours of their time. Their services include responding to alarms, training drills, traffic control for emergencies and community events as well as fire protection education for area schools.
Fire Chief Robert Weber says, "Although Hatboro Federal's Jamison Branch is a relatively new Warwick Township neighbor, the staff and management have proven to be generous and supportive, and we are truly thankful for their help with our modernization efforts."
