OUTDOOR FIRE SAFETY

Outdoor Fire Safety
Move the grill away from siding, decking, and other things that can catch fire.
Stay with the grill the entire time you’re cooking.
Use long-handled barbecue tools when cooking on the grill.
Use a metal screen over wood-burning fires to keep sparks from floating out.
Turn off or put out fires before you leave the backyard.
Build campfires at least 15 feet away from tent walls, shrubs or other things that burn.
The best way to stay safe from fireworks is to not use them.

WATER DONATIONS

As the summer gets increasingly hotter, the fire department is very grateful for water and drink donations. This water is especially appreciated during hot training days and long fire calls to hydrate the firefighters and keep them physically fit to continue performing their duties.

A big thank you to Harry Williams with Howard Hanna Real Estate Service, Texas Roadhouse (Trudy Baer), and Lower Allen VFW (Donna Blanteno) for their donations!

Morning Mutual Aid call

This morning Truck 23 responded with 4 personnel to box 15-1 in York County for a reported garage fire. Engine 15 arrived and reported a garage heavily involved. The truck arrived and assisted with fire attack and over haul. The truck company remained on scene for 2 hours before returning to service.

Tuesday Night Training

Tuesday night members went to the creek to do some drafting operations with the Engine and Squad, since we have areas in our Township and in neighboring Townships without hydrants we need to be able to get water from creeks, lakes, and sometimes swimming pools.
