Fire Council

The Manheim Township Fire Council was created by the Board of Commissioners in response to a Fire Services Survey conducted in 1992.  The survey identified a need to coordinate activities and awareness between the three volunteer fire companies serving Manheim Township.  Today, the Fire Council is part of the Manheim Township Fire Rescue (MTFR) system and is composed of representatives of the Township and the volunteer fire companies to review mostly administrative and financial items pertaining to the fire rescue service.  

Members of Fire Council include the Township Manager, the Commissioner for Public Safety and the three (3) volunteer fire chiefs.  The Council also is served by three (3) citizens-at-large appointed by the Board of Commissioners.  The Fire Chief of Manheim Township Fire Rescue professionally supports the Fire Council as a non-voting member and recording secretary.  The Fire Council's citizen representatives are appointed by the Board of Commissioners with the other individuals appointed "ex-officio" because of their positions or offices held.  

The Fire Council is particularly important as the members provide administrative and financial review of items pertaining to fire rescue service in the Township.

These eight (8) members meet bi-monthly, beginning in January, on the second Tuesday of the month at 6:30 p.m. according to the following schedule of locations:  January and July meetings will be held at the Eden Fire Company, March and September meetings will be held at the Neffsville Fire Company and May and November meetings will be held at the Southern Manheim Township Fire Company.
