Donate to East Brandywine Fire Company

Thank you in advance for your donation, your financial contribution plays an essential role in allowing us to continue to provide high quality emergency services to the Community.

Why is your help critical?

  • East Brandywine Fire Company (EBFC) is 100% volunteer. None of the Firefighters, Officers, or Emergency Medical Technicians are paid.
  • EBFC provides service to East Brandywine Township, West Brandywine Township, and Upper Uwchlan Township. Additionally EBFC provides mutual aide support to our neighboring communities when requested.  
  • EBFC volunteers respond to over 850 Fire and EMS emergencies annually.
  • Municipal contributions cover less than half of the EBFC’s annual $400,000 operating budget.
  • In 2014 only 1 in 4 households contributed to the annual fund drive. This results in a 25% response rate, however most community members expect emergency services 100% of the time when they call 911.
  • EBFC volunteers train weekly to enhance their skills, and be better prepared to provide lifesaving services.
  • EBFC has a robust Fire Prevention Program that services 4 Elementary Schools and numerous pre-schools. Annually EBFC volunteers educate over 2,500 kids on how to respond in an emergency.
  • Volunteer fire companies save taxpayers millions of dollars each year. With your help and support we can continue to preserve the Volunteer System. EBFC is a 501(c)(3) organization, so your donation is tax-deductible.  

What are some of our expenses?

  • Each set of personal protective equipment for a firefighter costs approximately $3,500. We have over 45 active firefighters, and this gear must be replaced at minimum every 10 years by NFPA standards.
  • Each self contained breathing apparatus (SCBA) that allows a firefighter to enter a burning structure costs approximately $5,000. We have 25 SCBA in service, all which require routine maintenance and upkeep.
  • Our newest fire truck, Engine 49-5, a pumper tanker, was purchased for approximately $750,000 including tools and equipment. We have 3 large fire trucks in service, as well as 6 smaller vehicles. These are typically replaced every 15-20 years due to escalating maintenance costs and evolving safety standards.
