About us

Welcome to Lehigh and Lausanne Rural Volunteer Fire Company

Who we are…

Lehigh & Lausanne Rural Volunteer Fire Company is a 100% volunteer organization that has been serving Lehigh & Lausanne Townships, Carbon County since 1949.  As volunteers, we commit to the same vigorous training requirements and operate under the same expectations as our counterparts in the career service.   Some of our active members are certified in fire ground and hazardous materials operations as well as emergency medical care. Our hope is to have all of our active members certified to at least fire fighter I. Most important, though, is our dedication to expanding and improving upon our ability to serve through additional coursework, company training, and education on the latest technologies and procedures in emergency response. 

Currently, comprised of about 20 active members, our ranks are gleaned from across the occupational spectrum of the community; carpenters, doctors, plumbers, students, businessmen, and even career firefighters unite in service by protecting the people and property of their community.

Who we serve…

We are a small volunteer fire company that along with our community leaders, neighboring communities, and Carbon County works to provide an integrated network of emergency response for our residents.  Responding to emergencies in residences, businesses, and industrial sites, L & L Fire Company protects and serves 2000 permanent residents and a transient population in the warmer months of 1000 to 5000+ a week.  This includes the communities of Buck Mtn., Rockport, Lauraytown, Lehigh Gorge State Park, and the many trails that weave through our townships. In the immediate vicinity, we respond as the “first due” company, which means L&LFC is the main station responsible for the emergency.  We are also responsible for assisting other companies over a broader area for rescues and fire suppression.

How we serve…

Over the years the volume of calls we respond to has increased dramatically.  We have also been dispatched on a greater variety of calls, including:

  • Structural fires involving residences and businesses
  • Medical emergencies, i.e. cardiac arrests, trouble breathing, and traumatic injuries
  • Vehicle accidents
  • Rescue situations involving people trapped
  • Rehabs for assisting police, fire and ems agencies
  • Fire Police
  • Assisting members of the community with non-emergency calls, i.e. falls, floods, and downed power lines

In addition to our delivery of emergency service, L&L Fire Co. strives to support and establish a positive presence in the community by participating in local events such as the Weatherly Memorial Day and Halloween parades, the Weatherly Hill Climb, and our own annual Home Coming Party, Ham and Turkey Raffles, Bingo's and Wing and Pizza Sales. In an effort to continue educating our community about fire safety, we also hold fire engine and rescue vehicle displays for groups as well as private birthday parties with a fire safety education.  

How you can help us serve…

L & L Fire Company is always looking for hard working and dedicated people to volunteer their time and energy.  You do not have to be a firefighter, we MANY other very important jobs to do.
