West Deer VFC #3, Station 290
Celebrates 55 Years of Service

West Deer Township Volunteer Fire Company Number Three has a long history of serving the community.

Thanks to our 24 founding members: Robert J. Ashcraft, John P. Bahorich, John E. Butler, Sam Caro, Frank L. Cooper, Thomas Gieraltowski, Richard E. Heck, Howard Keener, Arthur Kirschner, Frank L. Ladesic, William McDermott, Paul R. McHugh, William E. Moody, Charles Poplawski, Samuel Stevens, William Ratkus, Elmer Sauers, William J. Smith, Robert D. Stalker, John E. Sweeney, Thomas J. Sweeney, Thomas Szymanski, Louis Tuminello and W. Lee Worstell; our company became incorporated as a non-profit corporation on March 5, 1963.

Our modest beginnings started with a plot of land donated by Vernon G. Frey, upon which we hand-built our first fire station with the sweat of volunteers and donated materials. The original fire station comprised a single garage and dirt floor.

Over the past 55 years, our company and our station has grown to what it is today. Thank you to all of our volunteers, past and present, as well as our community for your continued support!
