Hills Regional Fire Department was established January 1, 2006 through the
consolidation of the Brownstown Volunteer Fire Company and the Westmont
Volunteer Fire Company. For three years a task force comprised of elected
officials, borough residents, and members of the fire companies closely examined
the requirements and laid the groundwork for the companies to merge. This
regionalized fire department will be providing emergency services to the
residents for Brownstown and Westmont Boroughs from two stations. The main
station will be located at the Westmont Municipal Building and another station
will be maintained in Brownstown Borough.
On January 1, 2012 the
Ferndale Volunteer Fire Company joined forces with the West Hills Regional Fire
Department after two years of planning and discussion. Currently the West
Hills Regional Fire Department operates out of three stations, serving the
residents of Westmont, Brownstown, and Ferndale Boroughs.
