Mocanaqua Volunteer Fire Company is located in Conyngham Township which is located within two-hour accessibility to the metropolitan cities of New York and Philadelphia; we are located in the western corner of Luzerne County. The company is all-volunteer and has 20 active members. Our Fire Company is celebrating its 94th year of volunteer service to the community this year. Our organization was incorporated in 1923 and serves the residents of Conyngham Township. Mocanaqua is an old coal mining ‘patch-town’ formed by the West End Coal Company on the banks of the Susquehanna River; our township is one of the young and small townships in the way of population with a first due area of 1,385 residents in a 17.2 square mile area. Over the past couple years the MVFC was a key asset providing initial response along with mutual aid support during the response and recovery phases of Hurricanes Irene & Sandy along with tropical storm Lee which has devastated our community. Today the Township is the home of several parks, recreational areas including the 3,053 acres of the Lackawanna State Forest, the Mocanaqua Loop trail which the trail consists of four interconnecting looping trails that take hikers to low-lying areas, ridge top overlooks, former coal mined areas, and natural wooded areas. The four loops combined, encompass about 15 miles this area is heavily used by 4 wheelers, dirt bikes, and rock climbers throughout the year.
