A little history...
The fire station was originally built in 1927 by the Erlton Fire Company with the help of Mr. Earl R. Lippincot, the area developer that the station and the surrounding neighborhood were named after. With the evolution of larger fire apparatus in the 70s and the growing need for better facilities for its firefighters, the fire station underwent a major expansion and renovation in 1972.
