Welcome to the Black Rock Volunteer Fire Company
 
The Black Rock Volunteer Fire Company was formed on February 1, 2012 through the merger of the Oaks Fire Company, formerly Montgomery County Station 63, and the Mont Clare Fire Company, formerly Montgomery County Station 55.  The membership of these two independent, non-profit organizations voted to combine to facilitate a reduction in duplication of staffing and equipment within the Township of Upper Providence, to improve the staffing levels responding to emergency calls and to reduce operating costs.

The Oaks Fire Company provided fire and rescue services within Upper Providence Township and its surrounding communities since 1907 and was chartered by the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania in 1908.  The spirit of the Oaks Fire Company credo "Volunteers Serving Upper Providence Township" continues as part of the new organization.

The Mont Clare Fire Company was formed in 1900 and was chartered by the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania in 1910 for the prevention of fire and protection of life and property from disaster in Mont Clare, PA.  The spirit of the Mont Clare Fire Company credo "Neighbor Helping Neighbor Since 1900" also continues as part of the new organization.

With the winter storm approaching, a friendly reminder to adopt a fire hydrant closest to your home or business. Clear snow and ice at least 3 feet in all directions around the hydrant and make a path to the street. This saves Firefighters precious time in the event of an emergency.
