Darby Historical Events

1775, January
Oldest existing volunteer fire company
Most people do not know that Darby has the oldest still existing volunteer fire company in the United States. It is Darby Fire Company # 1. It was organized in January of 1775, which will make this fire Company 225 years old in January, 2000. That is also older than the first fire department (Philadelphia Fire Department ) as they are now a paid department. We have been doing this continuously, as volunteers, for 225 years, and were ready for the next millennium and beyond!
