HUNTINGDON REGIONAL FIRE & RESCUE DEPARTMENT
The Huntingdon Regional Fire & Rescue Department was created by a merger of the Huntingdon Fire Department, McConnellstown Fire Company, and Oneida Township Fire Company. This merger took place January 1, 2010.
The Department has 105 active members serving over 10,000 residents of Huntingdon Borough, Oneida Twp., Henderson Twp. and Walker Twp. The new Department serves an area that encompasses more then 48 sq. miles. Our Firefighters and EMS personnel are some of the most trained in the area, providing Structural Fire suppression and Rescue, Technical, Vehicle, and Swift water Rescue, We also provide Wild land Fire suppression, Hazardous material operations level response, Medical First response and Fire and Safety Education.
We do fundraising throughout the year, to help with the cost of operating the Department which is over $300,000 a year. We also hold our annual fund drive to help with this total cost. By pulling the recourses of these 3 companies we will be able to continue to save money for the communities we serve. HRFR is a 501.C3 non-profit organization. We rely on public funds to keep the department running.
We currently have our McConnellstown Station banquet hall room for rentals. This is located in Central PA between State College, Lewistwon and Altoona, off Rt. 26, now known as Raystown Rd. To rent this hall, please go to our hall rental tab for more information For fundraising donations or information send to H.R.F.R. P.O. Box 5 Huntingdon, PA 16652
We are planning an effort to develop a strategic plan to guide us in delivering the best service our communities demand and deserve in the most efficient manner with equipment needed to get the job done.
We are currently using our McConnellstown station as headquarters and for all company meetings.
