Their main goal was to provide East Liverpool’s paid department with a tanker truck on calls outside of the city. The City of East Liverpool actually gave them their first fire hose. Today they have grown into a very respectable fire department with a new facility built in 2004. There are currently 20 volunteer firefighters on staff.
