The United Hook and Ladder #33 was placed into service on June 20th, 2009 through the combination of the Abbottstown Fire Co. #12 and the New Oxford Community Fire Co #13. The merging of the two departments into one was to increase efficiency of fire, rescue, and EMS service to Abbottstown, New Oxford, and the surrounding communities in which we serve. As of January 1st, 2016, the Bonneauville Community Fire Company #19 has merged into United Hook & Ladder Co #33.
