New Hope Eagle Fire Co. embarked on a new chapter in its 200-year history this week as Gary Breuer became its first paid chief.
Eagle Fire Company provides critical fire protection, vehicle rescue, water rescue and hazardous materials response for more than 10,000 residents in New Hope Borough and Solebury Township.
In recent years, Eagle Fire has been met with a growing demand for services, responding to approximately 400 calls per year, and subsequently, increased training, recruiting and fundraising needs. Its leadership saw this as an opportunity to rethink its structure. “We have a vibrant volunteer community,” said Gagan Tayal, president of New Hope Eagle Fire Company’s Board of Directors.
