The company organized on March 15, 1918, in the midst WWI, following two devastating fires that happened that year.
Much of the town would have been destroyed had it not been for the Parkesburg and Coatesville fire departments.
The decision to organize a local fire company was made during a meeting at the home of Norman G. Martin.
Another meeting followed on March 26, when the permanent organization was established and the decision was made to purchase a 1923 Ford Model-T chemical fire engine.
The new engine that cost around $425 arrived in September. It was housed in the barn of the company’s president, John C. Schober.
In 2015 the company recorded its busiest year since 1918 responding to 191 fire calls.
The company remains the only chartered fire and rescue entity in Sadsbury Township.
“I am very proud of our crew for all their hard work and selfless dedication to Sadsbury Township and its neighbors,” said Sadsburyville Deputy Chief Erik Brecht.
