Can't thank you guys enough for providing a crew tonight, so that our guys could get a much needed break.
Where’s the outrage about home fire fatalities? 539 people have died in home fires in America so far this year. 28 of them already CONFIRMED not to have WORKING SMOKE DERECTORS! That number will go up when reports are submitted. Where’s the outrage? Only 19 have died to Coronavirus in America. Mandatory quarantining. Mandatory tests. $8 BILLION in FEDERAL FUNDING. Not for smoke detectors. Not for sprinklers. For the coronavirus.
Not trying to minimize a health pandemic, but I would appreciate if there was AT LEAST as much concern about the fire pandemic killing 3500 people every year. It would be nice to go to Home Depot and see the smoke detectors sold out instead of the water.
Check your smoke detectors today and change your batteries. It’s the real pandemic every year.

Do u give out free detectors
We are pleased to report the progress of the repairs of Engine 36-1 are coming along nicely. Thanks to Glick Fire Equipment Company body shop for their excellent craftsmanship and Thanks to our Township for its continued support of the repairs. Our Fire Officers always stress safety while operating on our Interstate 81 accidents, however on the morning of November 20th 2018 all of that changed this incident became very personal for our Fire Company The Engine had been hit while operating at an accident on Interstate 81 back in November 2018. The most important part is that the crew of 5 on Engine 36-1 that night were treated for non life threatening injuries at a local hospital and released. This could have very easily become a fatal accident had the apparatus been positioned differently. This serves as a constant reminder to be aware of our surroundings.
This incident serves serves as a very continual reminder of our Pennsylvania State Law. Pennsylvania's “Move Over,” or “Steer Clear” law requires drivers to slow down or, when possible, to move at least one lane away when encountering an emergency vehicle, traffic stop or disabled vehicle along the side of the road. Please see the link below for more information from Pennsylvania State Police
