Little Help from UAFD!!!

September 9th, 2016

Upper Allen Fire Department are called to all types of emergency calls every year. We also get a few calls a year that are NON-Emergency to us but for township citizens it is to them. On September 8, 2016 was one of those calls.

The Fire Chief received a call from a township citizen about a cat stuck in a tree around 20′ in air. Chief arrived to investigate and called for the ladder truck and crew to assist with getting the cat down. FF Joey Heffelfinger performed the rescue as FF Bosserman, LT. Stefanowicz, FF K. Kunkel. and Chief Salter assisted on the ground.

We are glad to help and serve the citizens of Upper Allen Township. We appreciate all the support every year with our fundraisers and donations and also family that drop off snacks and food for firefighters from time to time.

August 23, 2016 Chief 123 was in charge of training night. The Chief worked up a drill for our newer members for handline advancement and control and for our older members some apparatus pump time.  UAFD went to our local Elementary School and used the parking lot to run some drills.   Everyone was involved and did lots of learning, our Fire Police also came out and did some training and set up practice.  Nice Job Chief 123!!!
