Welcome to the Schuylkill Historical Fire Society!

We are dedicated to the preservation of historical fire apparatus and memorabilia. Our collection encompasses fire engines, steamers, helmets, artifacts, and uniforms, which is housed in our museum.

The museum serves as the headquarters for the Schuylkill Historical Fire Society.

The fire society has numerous displays and exhibits of fire equipment and memorabilia for visitors throughout the building.

Displays include over 150 years of fire helmets, parade uniforms, a historical display of fire nozzles and breathing apparatus, an in-house Gamewell Alarm system, and a photo wall of Schuylkill County's most serious fires

The Schuylkill Historical Fire Society is open for fire department, school and private tours. There is no charge for tours, but donations are accepted.

Interested groups should contact President Michael Kitsock at 570-628-3691 or William Kline at 570-622-3678 to schedule a tour.

Membership inquiries are also welcome.

Latest Arrivals

Two new rigs have recently been acquired for the SHFS fleet.

The first is a 1955 Ford/American LaFrance pumper, which served the American Hose Company #2 of Mahanoy Plane.

The second is a 1966 Mack C Model Open Cab Aerial ladder truck that was recently retired from the City of Greenville in Western Pennsylvania.

Both trucks are fully operational and will be joining the parade circuit in 2014.

SHFS President Mike Kitsock has the distinction of being one of the last drivers to respond with the 1955 Ford to a fire alarm.
