Borough Turns Over Firehouse To Vigilant And C.V. Hose Companies

On March 23, 1993 in a ceremony at the West End Fire and Rescue Company, the three companies signed an agreement with the borough of Shippensburg to turn the two borough owned buildings over to the Vigilant and CV’s. Along with the agreement the borough was to give the companies more in annual appropriations each year starting at $60,000 for the first year to be divided equally between the three companies. The annual contribution was to be increased by 2% each year unless the borough is not financially able to. The agreement was drawn up over a four-month period in meetings between the fire companies and town council. Part of the agreement was to try for regionalization and the other municipalities to step up and pay their share.
