We are a small municipal fire department created in 1996 to supplement the local volunteer fire department’s response to fire calls. Since that time our department has taken on many new tasks with the emphasis on prevention and education.
The Newtown Emergency Services Department operates from its headquarters located at the Township Municipal Complex. The administrative office is located on Municipal Drive at the Fire Station.
The department provides full service fire and basic first responder medical care, fire prevention and education programs, fire suppression, vehicle extrication services and fire cause and origin investigations. We operate 5 days a week from 6 am to 6 pm M-F.
Every resident or visitor to our community is guaranteed the same professional and courteous service. We serve a resident population of about 18,206 in an area roughly 12 square miles. Newtown Business Commons has several light industrial facilities and several large professional office centers. Newtown Borough serves as the Historic area with many businesses.
Newtown Township is a Class 2 Township with an ISO rating of 03/03X. This rating has helped to reduce the Fire Insurance cost to our residents.
The Newtown Emergency Services Department provides essential emergency and non- emergency services.
We are a responsible organization dedicated to answering the needs of the Community with highly skilled people who care. We are committed to eliminating threats of life safety and property damage through education, prevention and effective response to fire, medical and environmental emergencies.
We will achieve our mission through teamwork, professionalism and a commitment to the people we serve.
