Eynon Hose Co. No. 3 (Lackawanna County Station 33) was organized in 1903. Eynon is a section of Archbald Borough. We mainly protect residential, but we also have protect industrial and many commerical buildings along Business US RTE 6. Our orginial station was on Main Street until 1970, the station was built on Thomas Street due to Space Problems when the dept. bought a 1970 Ward La France Engine. We currently have 20 active members. We do mutual aid with Station 20 (Wilson Fire, Peckville), Station 22 (Blakley), and Station 58 (Jermyn). We average about 60 calls per year. Most of our calls are forest fires, due to the large wooded areas that we protect.
