Dear Neighbor,

Thank you for your continued and generous support.  There is no fire tax in Lower Macungie Township, so we rely on your contributions. Those contributions provide the majority of our funding, enabling us to deliver fire & rescue emergency services to the Lower Macungie community.  Having an all-volunteer staff saves the community hundreds of thousands of dollars every year.  In 2017 we explored combining our manpower and resources with the Alburtis Fire Department. After reviewing the options, both departments have decided it is beneficial to consolidate our operations into one department with three stations covering 100% of Alburtis and L.M.T. by the start of 2019. (see press release) Here are some other highlights from 2017:

  • We are an all-volunteer department that responded to 480 emergencies in 2017.

  • We remain one of three volunteer departments in the county, for the 12th straight year, to be a 100% state certified fire team under the Pennsylvania State Fire Commissioner's certification program.

  • We remain, for the 11th straight year, one of a small handful of Pennsylvania Department of Health certified rescue services in Lehigh County.

  • These fire and rescue certifications demonstrate our commitment to being one of the best trained and well-equipped fire departments in the Lehigh Valley.

  • This year we provided over 40 education programs including our annual Open House to the children and other members of our community on fire safety.

  • We are an official 501(c)(3) non-profit agency, so your donation is tax deductible.


You have the option to make your donation online using your PayPal account or credit card (no account necessary).  Simply use the form below and be prepared to enter the LMFD ID number found in the bottom right corner of the return stub below.  This ID allows us to track your donation properly.

Please remember that we do not solicit by phone.  Any phone solicitations you may receive indicating that your donation will benefit the Lower Macungie Fire Department are just not true.

Once again, we thank you for your support and wish you a safe year. If you require any further information on the Lower Macungie Fire Department or wish to volunteer, please visit our website at or call us at 610-398-0996.
