The idea of FireCompanies.com was hatched in a Delaware County Community College classroom at the Government Services Building in West Chester, PA in September of 2001. Guil, Craig, and Dan had the idea of designing, coding, and hosting websites for fire departments, at the time the websites would be manually updated by hand with the clients emailing the updates. In 2001 this idea was unheard of, there were no other vendors offering a service such as this.
On September 29, 2001, the domain name FireCompanies.com was secured, FireCompanies.com was born. Little did we know at the time, another person that was local from Lower Chichester Fire Department, just a few short miles from us had previously owned the domain but didn’t renew it. His dream was to link fire departments from around the country. Here was his logo.
