Rumors are circulating in local fire departments that East Fallowfield Township - which is served by Modena, Westwood and Pomeroy Fire Companies - intends to form its own fire company within the township's boundaries.
Or that Modena Fire Company will relocate in East Fallowfield Township to
serve the residents.
But the rumors are false, East Fallowfield supervisors said at their work session Wednesday, in response to questions posed by Westwood and Pomeroy fire officials.
"I have heard rumors that East Fallowfield is requesting its own fire department and that there is a petition going around saying residents want their own fire company," Pomeroy Fire Chief Ray Campbell told the supervisors on Wednesday.
