Making LATFD shirts available to the public would be a great fundraiser idea!

Glad you put this I was going to order one

This is becoming a pretty common scam. Rule of thumb folks: if you get an unsolicited text message and it’s asking you to click on something, DO NOT DO IT!! It is likely a scam.

FYI, alot of dinners will not be getting a 1/2 chicken whole as advertised.. Instead you will receive a 1/4 chicken, a breast and 2 wings. There was an issue with our chicken supplier and this was the best solution on a short notice! We hope you understand

This week, our crews built all in-house, two, “man vs. machine kits” that will be utilized for anything from a machine accident or impalement to a ring stuck on a finger that can’t be removed. This type of equipment came together after several incidents in lower Allen township over the past several years.

While they are built with tools found at a local hardware store, they are now together, organized and ready to use at a moments notice.

The crews worked hard on this project to get it completed. Our crews have had training on various rescue techniques from some of the best in the fire and rescue services from around the country on “man-vs-machine incidents.

We are glad to provide this type of service to the community.

Gotta love having a dog run out and people slamming on their brakes.

Today, Lower Allen Responded to three calls for service. The crews responded to a active gas leak in the 12 box (Lower Allen) then a fire alarm in the 113 box (West Shore) with active water flow then a brush fire in the 24 box (Lisburn).

So happy to know an establishment appreciates the first responders hard work and dedication to the citizens of Lower Allen Township and surrounding towns.

Happy Presidents Day!

Did you know various United States Presidents served as firefighters or made long lasting assistance to the fire service.

These presidents are just a snapshot of what presidential administrations have done for the fire service. Almost every administration has done something special for the fire service.

GEORGE WASHINGTON
Served from 1789-1797
Not only did he serve as our first U.S. president, but he was also a volunteer firefighter. He served with the Alexandria (Va.) Fire Department after it was founded in 1774. Washington also purchased the town's first fire engine.

THOMAS JEFFERSON
Served from 1801-1809
It has been said that Thomas Jefferson, our third U.S. president, also served as a volunteer firefighter.

WOODROW WILSON
Served from 1913-1921
While not a firefighter, President Wilson issued the first National Fire Prevention Day proclamation in 1920. And since 1922, Fire Prevention Week has been observed each October.

Great training!

Around 0130 this morning, Lower Allen Fire units were dispatched to the Borough of Shiremanstown for a reported attic fire. Squad 12 arrived taking the first due engine assignment with a hydrant on the corner. The squad crew stretched a single handline inside and started to extinguish the attic fire that started in the chimney area of the residence. The crew preformed extensive overhaul until being released by command 22. The crews were out for 2 hours.

An hour later, Truck 12 was dispatched to Fairview Township, York County for a reported structure fire. Truck 12 arrived and located a small fire at the water heater area. The crews checked for extension and secured power to the residence. Command 68 held the assignment to units on scene and cleared minutes later. The crew was out for an hour.

Great job once again. God bless you all.

This is my house. I cant give enough praise to Lower Allen & Shiremantowns Borough Fire Department in their handling of the fire. Their quick response and actions not only kept the fire from spreading, but they also saved all of my furniture from being saturated by water or fire. Shiremanstown came back the next day to get their tarps and helped to move some items into another part of the house. The Fire Chief kept us well informed and safe. Thanks to all of the other Departments that came out as well. Also a shout Shiremanstown Code Officer Jody Alloway for being on top of things and getting them moving so we could get back into the part of the house that was liveable. Again Thank You for the Great Job.

Good job guy's 👍🙏

God bless you! Thank you for all you do for our community!

So appreciative and thankful!

Thank you guys again !

It's something that every one of us have imagined at one time or another. No other ride catches our eye like the loud and lit beasts rolling toward danger.

What would it be like to be on board?

To be in the midst of the emergency and counted on.
To be the one knocking down the flames when life is on the line.

Every time you see us, know that we see you too.
And we see a hero in you.

We imagine you sitting with us, ready for action.
We imagine you coming forward in Lower Allen.
We imagine our next generation that's not here today.

Just imagine that it doesn't have to be a dream anymore.

Most often, the only thing holding you back is the mistaken fear that you are not enough. But in this place, new courage takes it place.

It doesn't matter your adult age, size or background.
We're neighbors helping neighbors together.

Plus there are some real benefits.

Join us for a free no-obligation ride along. yes with real first responders on real emergency calls.

See for your self that you have what it takes.

The on-duty crews made sure they gathered for the Super Bowl at least for a few minutes.

All agencies got to get some food before heading out for various emergency calls for service.
