Bensalem Public Safety Director Fred Harran held a public meeting Thursday night to explain his suspension of the Union Volunteer Fire Company.
He said it is a concern over safety.
He said the company's leadership repeatedly ignored instructions in operational situations for more than a year.
The Union Fire Company says Harran had personal motives for his decision, involving a dispute with its fire chief.
It says it might file a lawsuit.
Harran said the company's duties would be safely covered by other fire companies.
