Latest Incidents & News

Last night at weekly training, members were sent through a short but complex confidence maze to ensure better communication skills with their partner, air conservation and hands on operations. While following a hose line, many obstacles were found along the way including: confined space, low hanging "wires," knot tying skills, hooking up hoses, building different equipment, ladders and finally RIT operations. These were all done in a darkened environment with there faces covered. Great job by those that tackled the course and worked well with their partners! ... See MoreSee Less

Per the Townships page:
Mariner East 2 Hydro test:
This coming Saturday and Sunday (March 30th & 31st) the contractor installing the Mariner East 2 pipeline will be conducting a hydro test of the pipeline beginning at 7:00 am. The hydro test only uses air and water that is held in the pipe under pressure for several hours to insure the integrity of the pipeline.

When the air and water are released, there is sometimes a loud noise. This is normal and not a cause for alarm.

The work will take place near Sheepford Rd and Thompson Lane. Both roads, however, will remain open to traffic.

Last night the members and special guests of the LAFC held our yearly awards banquet. While we honored the Top Ten Responders, Top Training Hours and the combined President/Fire Chiefs Award. This year's award recipient for the President/Fire Chief's Award was given to Bill Zorn. Bill turned 80 in 2018 and the strike of midnight on New Year's, he stepped down as the lead Engineer / Township Budget liasion for the department. It was a great honor for his as he's been a member for almost 50 years and has served well in all aspects of each position he was in. We wish him well in his "retirement," even though he still makes a daily stop in to check on things. Join us in congratulating Bill for this well deserved honor.

As we come out of this deep freeze, its been 25 years since the collapse of the Windsor Park Shopping Center. A few pictures/articles related to the weather and incident are in Dave Houseals write up!25 years ago- January 21, 1994-Deep Freeze

It sure doesn’t seem like a quarter of a century has gone by that City Towers (now called Pennsylvania Place-a 25 story highrise at 301 Chestnut St. Harrisburg) froze up solid. It was C Platoon’s second night and I was working with Mike Horst on Tower 1 but since the dispatch was for only Tower 3 to check out the situation and report back to Battalion Chief Tom O’Keefe, we never got to go because rigs were “piece-mealed” in since it was basically a massive assist in evacuating over 200 residents down ice covered stairways.

We did manage to catch a long run into Cumberland County and eventually wound up at the Windsor Park Shopping Center collapse but by the time we got there all the excitement was over. So except running around a lot and freezing our butts off, we didn’t get to do much else. But since it was way below zero, I dared not complain every time I crawled back into the cab of the CF Mack Tower-Ladder and jammed my hands into the vent of the cab heater on full blast.

For bragging purposes though. . .sometime early that morning(21st) the record of minus 22 was registered at Harrisburg International Airport, so at least I can go on record as having worked during the coldest temps ever recorded in Central Pa. something Dad and Grandpa never did!

Okay you older guys and gals. . .let’s hear your stories.

(My apologies if the run records come out a bit small)

I was just thinking of this today. Joe and I just signed the lease, for the bagel shop and a few days later, this happened. We were very fortunate that it wasn't anywhere near our first location.

I remember that. The day before we were on the roof of the shopping center across the street where Sheetz is now removing heavy snow so there roof would not collapse along with 4 of my employees. George

I live close by and remember hearing all of the sirens, wondering what was going on and then hearing the collapse.

Damn that is one I won't forget. Shorty Matt n Tim Stoner myself n I think Emmy were around back shutting the gas off when it caved. We went scattering up n over the Hahn Engine . I think the 5 of us all needed new undies Lol lol lol . Thank God no one was injured or killed.

As one of the first of the responders on the scene, being inside during the collapse, and being 1 of the 3 FFs to make the double rescue, one of my most fulfilling days on the job...

I was taking a quilting class at sew with us when this happened.

CLOSE CALL

Today at 1115 hrs, Company 12 was dispatched to the rear of the Windsor Park Shopping Center for a vehicle fire. The box was upgraded shortly thereafter for it endangering the building. Chief 12 arrived confirming a well involved van. Squad 12 arrived and deployed a front bumper line to extinguish the fire. As the crew approached from the passenger side, a bang was heard and a REAR LIFT STRUT dislodged itself from the vehicle. It was found approximately 55 feet up an embankment (as you can see in the picture). Fortunately the crew was working in an safe approach when this occurred with no injuries. Always be careful not just of bumpers but also lift gates as struts are very dangerous.

The fire was quickly contained with no extension into the building. Thanks to Kyle Paul for the last 2 pictures. **Not for news media use.**

Glad to her that no one was injured. This just shows that proper training can avoid serious if not fatal injuries. Stay safe out there.

Can I share this in hopes of avoiding catastrophe?

Can I share on State Fire Commissioner's FB page?

Reign Vandertuin

This picture just blows my mind. Lesson learned, thank you very much.

Kindall L. Wann I’ve said this how many times to you and others. This should be a priority training for everyone, regardless of what position you hold or who you are. It doesn’t discriminate because your an officer or paid firefighter at your full time job!

Would you mind if I shared this to the PennTIME - Pennsylvania Statewide Traffic Incident Management Group?

4 years ago we began correspondence with a FD in Rhede, Germany. In 2015 1 of their members came to visit us.
This past weekend Deputy Chief Overmiller had the opportunity to visit with them for a few days.
He was shown around the Rhede stations, then neighboring town of Bocholt where the joint purchased Ladder is stationed.
Lastly visited the City of Mulheim station where he was able to participate in Live fire trainings along with continued discussions about European firefighting tactics v.s. our tactics.
In the evenings the firefighters took him to experience 2 different Christmas markets.
Thank you to Feuerwehr Rhede for this great opportunity!

Thank you for your visit. We hope we can maintain contact.

What an awesome opportunity to see a different way of doing things! I hope he is able to speak about his experience upon his return.

Around 1230 today LAFD and mutual aid departments were sent to Hearth Rd in the Allendale Development for a reported house fire. Lt. 212 arrived minutes later with a fully involved 2 car garage attached to the house. With the updated information and limited manpower responding, a 2nd alarm was requested. The fire was held to the garage with minor damage to the remainder of the house. No injuries reported and the Red Cross was requested. Thanks to those who assisted on scene and covered our stations.

Heres a ?...WHO AUTHORIZED those trucks to park there in the 1st place? Strategically, it's a very bad idea because 1 caught fire, easily could've ignited the rest of them then in turn causing possible severe damage to route 581. JUST SAYING.

That is a bad spot. I think that pole or one near the one has been hit before. So is that LA or Shiremanstown district? Maybe the township needs to get that relocated or something.
