In July 2005 Rothsville Volunteer Fire Company dedicated our newly remodeled fire station. The five bay station was remodeled into a training room, lounge, male and female bunk rooms, and offices for ambulance, trustees, business officers, line officers and chief. A gear room and three engine bays were added to the east of the original five bay station. The apparatus enters and exits from the rear of the building and comes out the one way drive on the west side of the building. The east side right of way is used to enter for apparatus and vehicles. Vehicles may exit using the right of way but not the apparatus. A warning light was erected over Main Street to let traffic know when an emergency vehicle is leaving the station for an emergency.
In 2009 we purchased a Pierce Arrow XT PUC pumper. The pumper was put into service in August of 2009 to replace the 1986 Pierce Lance pumper that was sold to Vera Cruz, Mexico in November of 2009.
The new Arrow XT is equipped with a cascade system to refill SCBA cylinders. The new pumper has a six person cab with ample storage space for hose, tools, first aid and oxygen supplies, backboard, saws, combination rescue tool, and 1,000 gallons of water.
