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.

We are also on Instagram at @hockessinfireco.

Fire at Modern Mushroom Farms north of Toughkenamon. Avondale arrived to find about 350 tons of hay burning with fire extension to two buildings and a front-end loader.  Hockessin units were in service for about four hours.  T29 (Port Penn) covered Station 19.   Be sure to see the photo album from Dave Smiley Jr. shared earlier.

At approximately 0130 hours Hockessin was dispatched to assist Avondale and other Chester County companies on a building fire on Newark Road. Tanker 19, the Engine and the Ambulance made the response with a combination of career and volunteer personnel. First arriving units found an estimated 350 tons of hay on fire with flames extending to two buildings and equipment parked on site. Due to the lack of water supply several additional companies from Chester and Lancaster Counties were called in. Hockessin's station was covered by Tanker 29 (Port Penn) and several companies from Chester, Lancaster and Delaware Counties covered other vacant fire stations for the duration of the call. Hockessin units spent about four hours in service for this incident, additional photos will follow later today.
