Celebrating 80 Years of Service


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, Tower 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.
