On Thursday, January 3rd, the West Hills Regional Fire Department suffered a great loss. While on a training detail, Truck 28 experienced
an undetermined mechanical failure which resulted in an engine compartment/cab fire.
We are extremely thankful there were no injuries, but Truck 28 suffered severe damage.

Even though this unit is out of service, please be assured the level of service to the community will not be affected.
The WHRFD will still be there in your time of need with the same level of professional service as in the past.

Special thanks to The Upper Yoder Vol. Fire Company and the Southmont Volunteer Fire Company, as well as the Ferndale Police Department for assisting. Quick action from these departments as well as the Volunteers of Station 28 helped ensure there were no threats
to public safety during this unfortunate event.

Also, thank you to the Richland Township Volunteer Fire Department for standing by in our main station while this
situation was being addressed!

Current Events

The West 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.
