Geography[edit]

Strattanville is located in eastern Clarion County at 41°12′9″N 79°19′44″W / 41.20250°N 79.32889°W / 41.20250; -79.32889 (41.202482, -79.328934).[4] U.S. Route 322 passes through the borough, leading west 3 miles (5 km) to Clarion, the county seat, and east 4.5 miles (7.2 km) to Interstate 80. Exit 64 on I-80 is 3 miles (5 km) southwest of Strattanville via secondary roads.

Fire department[edit]

The borough is home to the Strattanville Volunteer Fire Company Number 1. The company was established in 1928, and covered a large amount of Clarion County. Over time more companies were added to the surrounding townships and boroughs. Strattanville donated one engine to nearby Millcreek Township (590), in order to better serve the surrounding area. Today, the coverage area is 25 square miles (65 km2) comprising Strattanville Borough and eastern Clarion Township. SVFC often responds to assist the surrounding services of Clarion (520), Corsica (Jefferson County 3), Limestone (580), and Millcreek.

Until recently all Clarion County companies responded under their respective names (i.e. Strattanville respond for a structure fire, Strattanville Borough). After 9/11, Clarion County adopted station numbers for the companies based on alphabetical order. Strattanville is station 660 locally and 16-660 nationally. Currently Strattanville has five apparatuses, two engines, one tanker/tender, one brush/wildland, and one heavy rescue. 43 men and women volunteer for the company.
