The Honey Brook Fire Company No. 1 celebrated 125 years of service to the community Saturday which brought a parade through town followed by a ceremony at their station. Honey Brook Firefighters led the parade as they marched the streets that they have been protected for the past 125 years.

Honey Brook Past Chief Barry Messner was quoted as saying he has never felt more proud to be a Honey Brook Firemen this past Saturday when he marched through town with his fellow firemen to the applause of the crowd. Truly their town was proud of who they are and what they do.

The volunteer fire service is a long standing tradition in many small communities throughout the commonwealth. The first volunteer fire company was started by Ben Franklin right here in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Any volunteer fire company cannot run without people and in this day and age 125 years of service is something to be proud of.
