**REPORTED FALSE ALARM GETS THE UPGRADE**

Around 0730 this am, LAFD and UAFD were sent to a local hotel for a reported automatic fire alarm. While en route, CC911 advised Chief 212 that the alarm was false and to be on test due to ongoing renovations. Within department guidelines, Chief 212 continued to the scene to verify and held all units in quarters. Upon arrival and being let in by staff that was not on scene when the alarm came in, an odor of something burning was found on the 4th Floor. The assignment was quickly upgraded bringing in additional mutual aid units. First arriving crews found a circulator pump that malfunctioned and overheated in a mechanical room. This is a reminder to many that not all fire alarms are truly false, especially when no one is on scene and should not be treated as such.

We hear you...the Director will be posting to the Lower Allen Township Department of Public Safety and OEM Facebook page, found by searching @LowerAllenDPS as well as the @DirectorLowerA1 twitter account. These is more for general info and updates regarding the COVID-19 issues. Individual township PD, EMS, and Fire pages will still push out their own info as well, but this will assist in keeping their pages a little cleaner and more β€œbusiness as usual” while allowing the Director’s feed to focus on the COVID-19 issue, almost exclusively. Hopefully this helps the non-Twitter users. ... See MoreSee Less

To all; As you may have heard, Governor Wolf has ordered all non-life sustaining businesses in the Commonwealth to close effective 20:00 hours tonight. This is an escalation of the previous guidance from our government. Based on the evolving nature of the COVID-19 issue, LAFD we will be implementing the following steps:

Both stations will be closed to all non-members, visitors, guests, and members of the public until further notice. Any non-member needing to conduct business in person shall schedule an appointment. Vendors performing required maintenance are permitted but shall have limited contact with other persons on station.

All requests for smoke detector installs, public appearances, fire prevention presentations or related will not be honored until further notice.

This is a rapidly changing situation and further action plans may be implemented by the department.

We reassure you that if you call 911 in the need of an emergency, we will still respond. Personnel have received proper instruction on how to handle emergency requests from the public.

If you have any questions, feel free to reach out to us.

Thank you!

#membermonday or in this case #FamilyMonday This week we highlight a family. Greg Weaver and Rebecca Maher along with their son Max(not pictured and currently in the military) came to us about 5-6 years ago after a neighbors home caught fire and wanted to help out by giving back to the community they live in. In that case, they came to us and quickly obtained their training to become interior firefighters. In 2020, Greg will serve as our Fire Company Vice President and Rebecca will serve as our Relief Association Vice President. To the left is Noah Weaver, a very eager learning junior member who is always a big help around the department when present. What is extra special about Noah is that he participates in Special Olympics events across the state and was awarded 3 gold medals in Skiing last winter! ... See MoreSee Less

I have known Gary since he joined the fire co., He was always a go getter and wanted to learn all he could about firefighting and all it's aspects. I saw him become a roll model for some of the newer members. So CONGRATULATIONS on your FIFTY YEARS of active service.

Missing hanging out ,drink a few cold ones. At the Dog House

Great person every way around. If I can be half the fire fighter and leader you have been and are, I would be proud of that accomplishment . Thanks for your service and most of all your friendship!!

2020 is a true active 50 years of service! Always been an amazing role model in and outside of the firehouse for dad, myself and now Isabelle! ♥️ thanks for everything you do grandpa!

Just an all around great guy. Thank you Gary Frazer for years of answering my questions. I always look forward to seeing you

Pap is a great example for all of us. It has been a pleasure to work with him.

I remember Gary from almost 50 years ago when we played softball and trained in the West Shore Fire Chief's softball league.

Gary, I won't leave without you. πŸ˜‰

One great guy

He is a god!

A new feature here at Lower Allen #membermonday. Today is a dual feature. These fine young men came to us in 2017 with ZERO Fire Dept experience and quickly moved through their training to be called our Truck Apes. Today, Nick Knull and Josh Rokowski start the Montgomery County Fire & Rescue, MD training academy to pursue careers as career firefighters. We wish them the best of luck over the next several months. (Photo courtesy of Jillian Stewart) ... See MoreSee Less

Arlene Justice is this what you are looking for?

So Santa Claus IS coming to town! When he's at the 15 minute stops, is that just the truck coming through with Santa on board? I had a resident ask, and I just need to know what to tell them.πŸŽ„

We’ll be sure to have coffee on for ya for those who would like some or we can make hot 🍫
