History & Growth
The Fire Department was established in 1924 as the Montour Valley Fire Department. It was changed in 1936 to the Imperial Volunteer Fire Department. The department started out with one fire engine. Now, it operates with five Class A pumpers, a Rescue Truck, a Brush Truck, a Safeguard Unit, a Squad car and a Chief's car.
We are very aware of the growth taking place in Findlay Township and are always updating our equipment and firefighting techniques. The Annual Carnival is held the second week of June each year. Other events include bingo the first Monday night of every month at the Findlay Township Activity Center. The department is also in the process of finalizing their new firehouse on Pine Street.
Our main firehouse is now located at 111 Pine Street in Imperial. Our substations are located on Matchette Road in Clinton and on Aten Road in Westbury. Approximately forty-five volunteer fire fighters work out of these locations. This coverage provides superior fire protection to serve all of Findlay Township. The Imperial Volunteer Fire Department is always looking for good people to help the organization. Applications may be obtained at the main firehouse any Monday or Wednesday evening.
