Congratulations to UA Fire Dept Rockhounds!!!!

June 8th, 2017

The members of the Upper Allen Fire Department would like to say congratulations to our team the Rockhounds of the Upper Allen Baseball association as they won the Championship game on Tuesday night.  This is the 1st year the UAFD sponsored a team as a way to get out and try and gain some younger members in the FD. Following the team was a hugh success and our members really enjoyed rallying around our team and showing support.  On Tuesday we played a really tough team in the Yardbirds and the game was outstanding.  After falling down 6-1 in the 2nd inning our rockhounds came storming back with some great hits and outstanding base running. As a couple of UAFD members were in attendance it was fun to be around the team and hear the coaches communicate with the team always telling them “Believe and you can do it”.

The game ended 12- 10 with our rockhounds on top as CHAMPIONS.  As the last pitch was thrown the ladder truck in attendance gave the team some sirens and lights as the kids celebrated on field.  After that the entire team came rushing out to the  truck and climbed inside and were so excited it was awesome to see.  Coach Kyle had to come and get the team back to the field to receive their trophies.

Thank you to coach Kyle and the rest of the staff of the rockhounds we really enjoyed being a part of your team!!

International Firefighters’ Day

May 4th, 2017

Firefighters dedicate their lives to the protection of life and property. Sometimes that dedication is in the form of countless hours volunteered over many years, in others it is many selfless years working in the industry. In all cases it risks the ultimate sacrifice of a firefighter’s life.

International Firefighters’ Day (IFFD) is a time where the world’s community can recognise and honour the sacrifices that firefighters make to ensure that their communities and environment are as safe as possible. It is also a day in which current and past firefighters can be thanked for their contributions.

How to Celebrate Firefighters Day

There are many great ways to celebrate firefighters on this day. Most of all, this day is about showing our appreciation for their service, risks, and sacrifice, so find a way to make sure your local firefighters know how much you value them! As always, it’s the thought that counts and small gestures go a long way, so even bringing a cake down to the fire hall would be a nice thing to do. You could also consider donating money to one of the many firefighter charities out there, some of which help firefighters injured in the line of duty get the medical treatment they need and return to health.

International Firefighters’ Day is observed each year on 4th May. On this date you are invited to remember the past firefighters who have died while serving our community or dedicated their lives to protecting the safety of us all. At the same time, we can show our support and appreciation to the firefighters world wide who continue to protect us so well throughout the year.

By proudly wearing and displaying blue and red ribbons pinned together or by participating in a memorial or recognition event, we can show our gratitude to firefighters everywhere.

The IFFD ribbons are linked to colours symbolic of the main elements firefighters work with – red for fire and blue for water. These colours also are internationally recognised as representing emergency service.

“The role of a firefighter in today’s society – be it urban, rural, natural environment, volunteer, career, industrial, defence force, aviation, motor sport, or other is one of dedication, commitment and sacrifice – no matter what country we reside and work in. In the fire service we fight together against one common enemy – fire – no matter what country we come from, what uniform we wear or what language we speak.”
– Lt JJ Edmondson, 1999
