One Chapter Ends And Another Begins

It’s with a multitude of emotions that the officers and members of the Hecktown Volunteer Fire Company acknowledge Jeffrey Seip for 27 years as Fire Chief. Jeff was elected Fire Chief in 1996 after serving as Assistant Fire Chief in 1994 and 1995. During his 27 years as Fire Chief, Jeff oversaw the purchase and build of more than 10 pieces of fire apparatus, a new fire station, as well as the transition to new technology within the fire service. Jeff always made sure the fire company could provide the absolute best service to Lower Nazareth Township residents. The knowledge Jeff has passed on to the officers and members of the Hecktown Volunteer Fire Company will ensure the fire company and township are in great hands for many years to come.
The officers and members of the Hecktown Volunteer Fire Company would like to thank Chief Seip for his hard work, dedication, and commitment to the fire company and Lower Nazareth Township for the past 27 years.
We would also like to thank Jeff’s family for their support over the past 27 years. We all know that in order for us to do what we do, there are sacrifices made along the way. So thank you to the Seip family.

As 2023 begins, we would also like to congratulate all the new officers of the Hecktown Volunteer Fire Company and announce the Line-up.
