Some members of the Upper Allen Twp Fire Department attended the 6th Annual FDNY Symposium on March 14 and 15, 2014. The New York City Fire Department, in partnership with the FDNY Foundation hosted this event
The 2014 Symposium focused on Operations at High-Rise Building fires and Mass Casualty Incidents. They shared their fire ground knowledge to provide a training event that will make emergency first responders better prepared and more effective in performing their duties and responsibilities under these most challenging conditions.
FDNY Fire Officers explained Command Procedures and Company Operations for commercial and residential high-rise buildings.
It was very beneficial for this TRAINING with the large high rise buildings (Messiah College & Village) in the township that have lots of life safety requirements.

The Upper Allen Township Fire Department reminds all citizens that Daylight Savings Time begins this Sunday, March 9th at 2:00am.
This is also a perfect time to change the batteries in your smoke and carbon monoxide detectors. Research has shown that having properly located and functioning smoke detectors gives your family the best chance to escape a fire in your home.
Carbon monoxide (CO) is a colorless and odorless gas that prevents your blood cells from supplying oxygen to your body. According to the U.S. Fire Administration, each year more than 150 people die from accidental non-fire related CO poisoning. To learn more about carbon monoxide and its dangers clink on the link below.
If you have any further questions concerning smoke and carbon monoxide detectors, please contact the Upper Allen Township Fire Department.
