The Willow Street Fire Company was organized in 1924. Willow Street is located in Lancaster County in the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania. The original station was a two-bay building that was built on rented land located on Main St in downtown Willow Street. It became home to the department's first Reo fire truck. The department at that time ran 25-30 calls a year. As the community grew both in population and number of buildings, so did the demand for additional emergency equipment. In June of 1961 the first ambulance was purchased. In March of 1977, a fund drive began to raise money for a larger station to be built along the Willow Street Pike. In 1978 the department moved from its Main Street location to 2901 Willow Street Pike where the company is located today. The current station is a 7 bay engine house with offices, a lounge, kitchen and meeting room.
The current department is made up of 1 structural engine, 1 rescue engine, 1 truck, 1 heavy rescue, 1 squad, 1 fire police traffic unit and a command/duty officer vehicle. The department runs 450-500 calls a year and is home to a growing community that includes industry, commercial buildings as well as residential developments. Willow Street is also home to one of the worlds largest nursing home complexes.
