Weisenberg Volunteer Fire Department

Welcome to the official website of the Weisenberg Volunteer Fire Department. Located in Northwestern Lehigh County (Pennsylvania) we cover the entire 26+ square miles of Weisenberg Township and provide mutual-aid to surrounding municipalities. Weisenberg Township is a rural area which contains mostly single family homes and farm land. The Township also has some commercial / industrial development along the I-78 corridor. Our team of 30 + volunteer fire fighters provides fire protection, responds to vehicle accidents, and assists area emergency medical crews on critical calls. We train every Monday night at 6:30 pm and have a monthly administration meeting every 1st Monday of the month.
