Last night as our members were gathering at Sta 2 for our annual Christmas meal with our families we were sent to the 3100 blk of Gettysburg Rd for an auto accident. PD arrived finding no victim. The vehicle launched from the roadway landing on a parked cargo van and then rolled.

After clearing the accident crews returned to Sta 2 to enjoy the meal with our families.

Thank you to all the volunteers and their families who sacrifice many dinners, missed events and other times with their families to serve the community.

Another Wednesday another exciting day. Our morning started on Rt 15 near Wesley Dr with an Accident w confinement. E312 w the PSO's and Rescue12 arrived after Chief112 to find a 2 vehicle MVA and had to force a door. Other than traffic problems luckily minor injuries.

Later in the day while returning from picking up E1 from the shop it suffered a front tire failure. The operator was about to safely bring it to a stop without incident and causing minor backups. (More on this later)

Finally for Weekly training we headed out for a Facility tour at a local meat packing facility. Its always good to see these businesses on good days, not just when they are having a bad day.

If your facility would be interested in showing us around too please contact the Township.

Wild Wednesday was quite the busy day with 6 calls. Starting a little after noon time E312 transferred to Co 31 (Silver Spring) while they assisted on a missing person incident. While there they took in 2 calls for Co 31.

Smoke in a building in Hampden Twp off Salem Church Rd @ 1246 hrs then a AFA 1536 hrs off Truffle Glen Dr before returning around 5pm.

Crews were getting ready to head to HACC for weekly training when Lower Allen EMS called out with a MVA on Wesley Dr @ Gettysburg Rd around 630 pm reporting possibly 3 injuries. E312 and R12 hearing the call from Amb 74 were responding before dispatch along w C212. Arriving shortly after being officially dispatched by CC911 with a 2 vehicle accident patients out of the vehicles being attended to by LAEMS until additional EMS units arrived. Lisburn MP24 added on as they were coming in to go to HACC an assisted on scene.

While still on scene of the MVA HQ advised to copy another call @ 1906 hrs.

This sent E312 from the scene of the MVA w C212 and Co 23 (Upper Allen) to Louise Dr to a hotel for a AFA. C212 arrived and was advised by staff "just burnt popcorn" but found 1st floor hallway charged w smoke. E312 arrived and set up fans to remove the smoke. C212 held Co 12 and after Rescue 12 cleared the crash they responded over to assist with additional fans. Units on scene for 30 mins before heading over to HACC for weekly training.

This weeks drill was in the Smoke Maze where crews had to navigate multiple hazards climbing over and under objects, up and down obstacles while communicating with each other and managing their breathing air.
Good job by all!

On the way back to station to clean up E312 and MP24 witnessed a transformer blow at Carlisle Rd and Lowther St. Crews notified PPL and cleared shortly afterwards.

Wednesday - Tonight's training was hoseloads and hoseline advancement. The objective tonight was for the crews to deploy handlines and navigate through obstacles and tight spaces. We changed things up a little and decended on 3 parks in flash mob style around the Township. Once crews completed the drill we repacked the lines and moved on to the next location.

If you have an interest in joining, feel free to stop by Sta 1 on Gettysburg Rd at 7pm on Wednesdays. There are also many non- firefighting opportunities available also!

This morning we were sent to Rt 15N at Slate Hill Rd for an accident. A tow truck that was loading a car from a previous non injury accident was struck by a truck heading NB which then went off the road, struck the bridge and lost its load. No injuries but Slate Hill Rd bridge remains closed until inspected by PENNDOT.

One of the most powerful things to experience in the fire service is the brotherhood and family one gains when they join. In times of adversity we rally around one another and support each other in every way possible. Today we ask for your thoughts and prayers as we rally around one of our brothers and his family as they care for their child who is recovering from serious injuries after a recent auto accident. Thank you ... See MoreSee Less

This morning we were sent for a deck fire in the 5000 blk of Ravenwood Rd. PD on scene advised the house was on fire with embers blowing on adjoining houses. Engine 1-12 arrived to find heavy fire on side C which had extended up into the 2nd floor and attic area. Engine 1 hit it with the deck gun while deploying additional handlines. Thank you to Co 30 23 28 22 for your assistance on scene and E31 Sq 13 Tr117 and YC 68 for covering our stations.

You've heard that smoke detectors save lives. Yesterday was a perfect example of that. Our 2nd call of the day was to Upper Allen Twp for a kitchen fire. The resident was alerted to the fire after hearing the smoke alarm sounding while they were in another part of the house. Once they investigated they found a fire in the kitchen and were able to evacuate themselves including small children safely and call 911. Are your smoke detectors working? When were the batteries last changed?

Lower Allen Fire Company No. 1 shared Feuerwehr Rhede's album.

Our friends in Germany have been quite busy with over 60 storm calls after heavy rains recently this week.
... See MoreSee Less

Einsatz-Nr: 54-101/2016: Unwetter Datum: 02.06.2016 Uhrzeit: 00:05 Ort: Rheder Stadtgebiet Fahrzeuge im Einsatz: ELW 1, LF 20, HLF 20/1, HLF 20/2, LF 16 TS, LF10, LF 1, GW-L, MTF Zu 47 Unwetter bedingten Einsätzen rückte die Freiwillige Feuerwehr Rhede am 02.06.2016 aus. In den meisten Fällen ging es um vollgelaufene Keller. Durch die starken Regenfälle war die Regenwasserkanalisation so überlastet das diese nicht mehr nachkam und sich das Wasser einen anderen Weg suchte. Teilweise drückte sich das Wasser in die Schmutzwasserkanäle. Von dort kam es dann in die Keller, wo es aus Bodenabläufen oder Toiletten lief. Im Rheder Krankenhaus liefen die Aufzugschächte voll, die durch die Feuerwehr leer gepumpt wurden, um größere Schäden in der Elektrik zu verhindern. Da im Laufe der Nacht die Einsatzzahl so anstieg und es im restlichen Kreisgebiet auch nicht besser aussah, richtete die Rheder Wehr eine eigene Leitstelle ein um die Feuerwehrkräfte zu koordinieren und die Kreisleitstelle in Borken zu entlasten. In Vardingholt und Krommert wurden zwei Bauernhöfe komplett überspült. Auf dem Hof in Krommert wurde schließlich ein Damm aus Mutterboden um den Hof gebaut um nachlaufendes Wasser auf den tieferliegenden Hof aufzuhalten. Ebenfalls in Krommert beugte sich eine Brücke den Wassermassen. Durch Unterspülungen riss das Wasser dort ein großes Loch in den Asphalt. Die Brücke am Raesfelder Weg ist bis auf weiteres gesperrt. Ein besonderer Einsatz erreichte die Feuerwehr Rhede morgens um 07:00 Uhr. Ein THW Fahrzeug hatte auf dem Weg nach Isselburg einen Reifen Platzer und war kurz hinter der Abfahrt Borken auf der B67 liegengeblieben. Die Kreisleitstelle bat nun die Rheder Wehr den Transport der 2000 leeren Sandsäcke nach Isselburg zu übernehmen. Sofort machten sich 3 Kameraden auf den Weg nach Borken um die Sandsäcke einzuladen und unverzüglich nach Isselburg zu Füllstelle zur bringen. Am Abend gegen 19:00 Uhr hatte sich alles soweit beruhigt, dass die Einsatzbereitschaft am Gerätehaus aufgehoben werden konnte und die Alarmierung wieder ganz normal über die Kreisleitstelle läuft. Die Feuerwehr Rhede bedankt sich bei allen eingesetzten Kräften für ihren ehrenamtlichen Einsatz. Ein ganz besonderer Dank gilt aber den Unternehmen, die diese Einsatzkräfte von ihrer Arbeit freigestellt haben. Ohne das Verständnis dieser Firmen wäre Freiwillige Feuerwehr nicht möglich. Vielen Dank dafür!!!!

Today 343 firefighters in full firefighting gear ascended the 72 floors of 4 World Trade Center in the 2nd Annual New York City Firefighter Stair Climb. While each climber climbed in honor of one of the 343 FDNY firefighters killed on September 11th 2001, the climb also memorializes fallen first responders and military personnel worldwide.

Congrats to 4 members of Carlisle Fire Rescue who completed this climb today. All four are Active Duty or Active Reserve Soldiers. Once they arrived at the Top of the World Trade Center FF Kirby re-enlisted by fellow FF Roth who is a Colonel in the US Army.

3 calls today. The morning started with an AFA on Wesley Dr at a local Hotel. Around noon we were dispatched for a House Fire w people trapped on a porch roof on Bosler Av in Lemoyne. Engine 3-12 and Truck 12 responded an Truck 12 was assigned to the front of the structure. PD used a neighbors ladder to evacuate the person from the roof prior to FD arrival. The Truck opened up on the front of the building and also had 2 attack lines deployed inside. Crews operated for 3 1/2 hrs before returning to clean up. While cleaning up we ran a MVA at the Capital City Mall in the parking lot with minor injuries. Crews returned and finally left the station after 5pm after finishing cleaning up from the fire this afternoon. Good Work by ALL.

While on this call we were dispatched to an accident at 0942 on Poplar Av/Beacon Hill Blvd. Due to our units being tied up on the initial call Fairview Twp responded along w Chief 212. Minors injuries on the crash and units cleared in 20 mins.
Lower Allen Fire Company No. 1 added 3 new photos.

Busy morning so far. First call of the day was at 0754 for the Engine and Truck over to Hampden Twp on Trindle Rd for a gas odor inside a business.
Shortly after clearing at 0837 we were sent to Louise Dr for a car fire. Units were still on the street heading to the Fuel pumps at the time. Engine 1 reported a smoke column visible from Wesley Dr / Rt 15. Arrived on scene to find a well involved engine compartment fire impinging on 2 other vehicles. Quick knockdown before other vehicles were damage.
As we were wrapping up we were sent to an automatic alarm at a business on Carlisle Rd at 0915. Chief 212 was advised PD on scene reporting false alarm while enroute and units went available.

4th call this morning was at 1051 for the Truck over to Camp Hill on 21st for a gas leak inside. Hose repacked... Engine 1 and Truck were both washed and fueled....ready for the rest of the day!

This afternoon Engine 1-12 responded to another 2nd alarm house fire. This time in Upper Allen Twp.off of S. Market St. Crews assisted on the scene for over and hour before returning. All the residents were able to evacuate prior to FD arrival. The home was occupied by 2 Adults and 5 small children. Our thoughts are with them. Another reminder to PLEASE SHOVEL your local Fire Hydrants. Crews were delayed getting additional water to the scene today. Thank You! ... See MoreSee Less

Engine 312 is currently in Lemoyne Boro 700 blk of State St on a house fire. Current temp 24 degrees. Units were hampered by limited access due to snow on roadways and snow covered hydrants. Please shovel out your hydrants. Its a great neighborhood project which helps everyone in your neighborhood. Thank you!
