During 2014 alone, according to township Fire Marshal Lew Babel, Ringing Hill volunteers responded to 366 calls, representing more than 273 hours of company assistance and more than 1,700 hours of personnel service. Together with the Sanatoga Fire Company and other first responders, they dealt last year with structural fires in the township that resulted in damages valued at almost $900,000.
