This morning at 07:45, LAFD and mutual aid departments were summoned to the 3900-bl of Gettysburg Rd for a House Fire. Prior to units responding, CC911 upgraded the box to a 1st alarm, bringing in additional resources. Chief 12 arrived on scene confirming a working fire with a large amount of fire showing from the house. The residents were evacuated by passerby's prior to anyone's arrival. Hampden Engine 2-30 and Squad 12 arrived to initiate fire attack. During the course of the incident, the house was evacuated due to structural concerns with fire load and the amount of fire still present. Crews were able to fully extinguish the fire after several hours. Thanks to our mutual aid departments for the assistance on scene and on transfers. The fire is being investigated by the Lower Allen Police Department. We again thank Nikoli's Pizza & Subs who supplied food to first responders on scene. Any additional information from the incident can be obtained from the Police Department. Photos courtesy of Dustin Weese & Sabrina McClintock ... See MoreSee Less

LAFD is proud to announce the purchase of a 2021 Pierce Ascendant 107' Quint. We would like to thank Glick Fire Equipment Company, Inc., Sales Rep Cyle Sheaffer and most importantly, the Lower Allen Township Board of Commissioners on this purchase. This piece replaces the current Engine 1-12 and is tentatively slated to run out of Station 2 (Rupp Ave.) We are not replacing the current Truck 12 with this piece as it will be an an additional aerial device in the township. The Quint has been in the established apparatus replacement plan for many years as some areas of the township, the current and former ladder trucks can not make access. The Apparatus Committee did their due diligence to properly spec this piece out to make sure the needs of the department and township were met, which included demos from other Ascendant Quints in the area. We thank those departments for allowing us theirs and our time to view their apparatus and drive the streets of our township. The Engine will be lettered Engine 12 as part of our future apparatus replacement plan with future purchases.Thank You and Congratulations to Lower Allen Township and Lower Allen Fire Company No. 1 for the purchase of a 2021 Pierce Enforcer 107' Ascendant Quint! Engine 12 will equipped with a 500 gallon tank, a Cummins L9 450 hp motor, and a Hale QMAX 2,000 gpm pump. Delivery is expected in Winter 2021. We appreciate your continued confidence in Pierce Mfg and Glick Fire Equipment Company! ... See MoreSee Less

**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. ... 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! ... See MoreSee Less
