Newton Township residents are served by the Newton Ransom Volunteer Fire Company, which provides both fire protection and emergency response services in Newton and Ransom Townships.
The Newton Ransom Volunteer Fire Company includes emergency medical technicians,
first responders and fire police along with firefighters. The active volunteers
are required to undergo extensive training each year in order to meet
state-mandated safety requirements. Our current fire chief is M. Jeffrey LaCoe with assistant
chiefs, John J. Stemphoski and Eugene Mancuso. Our EMS Captain is Daniel
Williams and fire police captain is James Rau.
The company responds to about 150 calls each year and is dispatched through the Lackawanna County Communications Center. Mutual aid is provided among area departments, including Clarks Summit, Chinchilla, Falls, Lake Winola, Duryea, Taylor and Old Forge. Newton residents call for emergency response through 911 dispatch service.
The Newton Ransom Volunteers are very dedicated to providing the best possible service, but they need your support. Please contribute generously during their fund-raising campaigns.
