Port Penn Volunteer Fire Company

Service Since 1951

About Us

On August 14, 1951, the Augustine Beach Fire Company was organized. We had one fire engine purchased from the Minquas Fire Company in Newport, DE by Sam Green. He bought the pump, engine, hose and coats for a mere $500. The engine was kept in a building behind the old Augustine Beach Hotel which was owned by Tommy Texis.

Between 1956 and 1957, the engine was moved to another location and the fire company began to hold meetings in the home of a family in Port Penn. On August 8, 1957 a new fire engine was purchased for $12,300.
