The Southmont and Upper Yoder volunteer fire companies have announced that they are working together on a consolidation effort. A committee has been formed - made up of equal representation from fire company members, citizens and elected officials from each municipality.

The consolidation committee’s mission is to become one entity to reduce equipment needs, operating costs and to better protect the citizens and property of Upper Yoder Township and Southmont Borough.

While in the preliminary stages of planning, a forum to obtain additional community input will be held later this year.
