At our August Meeting, Fire Chief Paul Delp Announced that James Carter will now be serving as Lieutenant 84.
I have no ambition in this world but one, and that is to be a fireman. The position may, in the eyes of some, appear to be a lowly one; but we who know the work which the fireman has to do believe that his is a noble calling. Our proudest moment is to save lives. ~Edward F. Croke
Citizens of Trevose were horrified when they learned of a fire on Avenue B which resulted in the deaths of two children. In March 1926, a meeting of the citizens of Trevose was held in the Trevose Community House with Mr. John Page presiding as temporary Chairman. Sixty-two citizens were present and the topic of the meeting was the formation of a fire company. Temporary officers were elected as follows: B. Mitchell, President, J. Page, Vice-President, A. Carr, Secretary, E. Beister, Treasurer and W. Baxter, Chief.
Throughout our seventy years, Trevose Fire Company has been blessed with many fine men and women that have given their time and efforts to make Trevose Fire Company what it is today. One of the backbones of our organization was formed in 1927 – The Ladies Auxiliary of Trevose Fire Company. Their many efforts throughout the years has enabled Trevose Fire Company to prosper and help us better serve the community.
We again thank all members, past and present, for the work they have done in making our Fire Company what it is today. Special thanks to the wives and husbands of our members for their understanding. And last, and certainly not least, thank you to the community of Trevose for allowing us to serve you and for your financial help. We certainly hope and pray that our next seventy years should only be as good as our first seventy years.
