UAFD had a very busy Saturday night and Sunday with total of 12 storm related calls.  UAFD went on everything from AFA’s, Tree Down, Water Rescues, Transformer Fires and Flooding in homes.  It was very busy for crews from UAFD and demanding on all firefighters.  With Sunday being Fathers Day we would like to “THANK” all the UAFD dads that helped with responding to calls on this day.

UAFD wants to remind everyone that please use common sense when making decisions on days like this because we risk our lives to save yours!

Upper Allen Fire Department  would like to wish each and every father a HAPPY FATHER’S DAY on Sunday.

Happy Fathers Day to all our Upper Allen Fire Department Dads!!!

“What Is A Dad?

A dad is someone who
wants to catch you before you fall
but instead picks you up,
brushes you off,
and lets you try again10.

A dad is someone who
wants to keep you from making mistakes
but instead lets you find your own way,
even though his heart breaks in silence
when you get hurt.7

A dad is someone who
holds you when you cry,
scolds you when you break the rules,
shines with pride when you succeed,
and has faith in you even when you fail…”
