History of Union Fire Company #1 of Leesport, Pennsylvania

Welcome to
Union Fire Co. #1 of Leesport

A group of residents from Leesport and West Leesport met in Rahn’s Hall, Leesport, February, 1900 for the purpose of organizing a fire company. The official name adopted was “UNION FIRE CO. #1 OF LEESPORT.”

The first engine was purchased from The International Fire Company of New York City, at a cost of $637.00, in November of 1900. This was a hand pumper first drawn by manpower and later by horses. The engine was drawn by horses owned by members of the company. On a call to a barn fire in West Leesport, one of the horses dropped dead from exhaustion.

The Leesport Fire Company Junior Brigade was first organized in early 1961. Participation and membership dwindled and in 1970 the junior Brigade was reorganized. A large influx of members followed and the group ran smoothly until most of the members turned 21 and they joined the regular membership.
