POTTS GROVE — After being de-certified by East Chillisquaque Township supervisors in February 2022 from providing services in the township, the Potts Grove Fire Company may soon be responding to emergency calls again — just not in the township where the fire company is based.

Turbot Township Supervisor Chair Keith Houtz confirmed his board of supervisors this week approved entering into a mutual aide agreement with the Potts Grove Fire Company, to allow the Potts Grove department to assist in responding to calls in the Turbot Township Fire Department's coverage area.
