Celebrating 80 Years of Service to the Community
The Hockessin Fire Company was established in 1936 and is the primary provider for fire, rescue and emergency medical service in the Hockessin area. Our Company consists of an Engine, Rescue, Tanker and Ambulance along with a committed group of dedicated volunteers. Our members & staff contribute nearly 30,000 hours of their time yearly for emergency responses, training, fire prevention, duty crews and administrative support. We share the same pride today as our founders did nearly 80 years ago and look forward to continuing our service to the community for many years to come.

The fireman will be here all night leading up to the event. Why?? Because we are having a pig roast! They will be selling pulled pork sandwiches with your choice of BBQ sauces. They will also have assorted chips and drinks available to go with it, but these sandwiches are really delicious. Remember that all monies from these sandwiches and food will go directly to helping the Fire Company.

We will wait until she "does her business", and whichever box it lands in will be our $500 winner! The tickets are $5 each and you may purchase as many as you like, because it will increase your chances of winning. You DO NOT need to be present to win! These tickets will be on sale, here in our Creamery, as well as in some local Hockessin businesses. All monies from ticket sales will go directly to the Fire Company.
GET YOUR OWN COW PIE SUNDAE!
To keep with the spirit of the day, sales from the Cow Pie Sundae in the Creamery will all be donated to the Fire Company as well. A delicious brownie from @[343700899063491:274:Drip Cafe], two scoops of your favorite ice cream, hot fudge, whipped cream and a cherry.
