Fire Prevention Division


The Hanover Township Fire Department's Fire Prevention Division is made up of dedicated volunteers and Career Firefighters from the department. Each year the group holds fire safety and prevention presentations in the Hanover Area Schools (Grades K through 5)  as well as other businesses and day care centers throughout the community. We also have in house programs and demonstrations for community organizations in our jurisdictional area.
