Mr. Ezra N. Fuller donated $100 towards the purchase of a hand-drawn hose cart. The Company was named in his honor. Fuller Hose was located at the rear of The Trivett House on Robinson Street. With the completion of the water system, North East Borough enacted Ordinance #60 on March 3, 1886, to protect the town. Early records of Fuller Hose indicate an aggressive campaign to become an able hose company. At the December 31, 1885 meeting, 26 men were enrolled as members and officers. Fuller Hose was incorporated on July 7, 1891. December 21, 1894, Fuller Hose Company bought property on South Pearl Street and built it at that location.
Fuller Hose still occupies the same location today. We are a 100% volunteer Fire Department. We have 2 Engines, a Tanker, a Water Rescue Unit, 2 Boats, and a Brush Truck. We are responsible for Fire and Rescue protection for approximately 49 square miles of North East Borough and Township.
