Why does it appear to me there have been an alarming amount of car fires this year. The carburetrated pre-ignition days I understood a bit more but this seems way too frequent.

We are proud to share we had 4 members receive a active for life title last night at our company meeting. This means they have attained a cumulative 20 years of active service with the department.

Rodney Mumma
David Murdoch
Steve Overmiller
Tim Sheely

Previous to these guys, we only have 4 other active for life members -Jim Polly, Bill Zorn, Gary Frazer and Larry Harder.

Please help us give a big congratulations to these gentlemen!!! Thank you for your dedication to our department and for your years of service!

Thank you for your services ladies and gentlemen. My children have enjoyed this for the last 10 years.

Thank you so much! We really enjoy it!

Thank you!!

Thank you. Both of my kids absolutely loved this! This was our first year being able to stop near the fire truck (lights were a sensory issue for my son; autism spectrum). Took us a few years, and now he’s no longer gluten free, the timing couldn’t have been any more perfect!

JOB OPENING: Community Service Officer

Captain Crone from the Lower Allen PD, here...I've hijacked all of the Lower Allen-related public safety pages for a minute (don't worry...I'm authorized!):

We are looking for applicants for the position of Community Service Officer. This is a part-time job, but a great foot-in-the-door for anyone looking to get into the public safety field. You'd primarily be working with the Police Department, but as anyone who knows us is aware, we all play nicely together (usually!) so you would get a wide variety of experiences across the spectrum of public safety service. CSOs work as the eyes and ears of the police department and are called upon to handle a variety of calls that do not require a sworn officer. These include minor crashes, assists to EMS and FIRE, animal calls, traffic control, and a long list of other duties. The official advertisement language is below, but I wanted to give you a little bit of what the job is about ...give us a call if you have any questions and feel free to share the announcement! Now for the official job posting:

Community Service Officer
Lower Allen Township is seeking part-time Community Service Officers. Duties include work within the Police Department. Must be at least 18 years of age, possess a valid PA driver’s license and able to work in all types of weather conditions.
Application and job descriptions are available online at: www.latwp.org or may be picked up at 2233 Gettysburg Road, Camp Hill. Deadline to submit applications is September 8, 2017, attention HR Department.

What an adventourus morning, evening and night for the guys and gals at Lower Allen. Friday ended with 7 calls of service.

By 8am, crews handled a minor accident and and odor outside.

Lunch time was spent finalizing out order for air packs with the salesman from the Federal Grant we were awarded back in May.

Fortunately, during the first round of storms, no calls were handled.

During rush hour traffic, Engine 312 handled another accident on Rossmoyne Rd at the infamous Turning Arrow Light. Just as they were getting off the Engine, EMS requested Life Lion to the scene of a medical emergency.

Around 915pm and during the second round of storms during the day, Chief 2 and Lt. 2 made the trek across the river to pick up Rescue 12 after having some maintenance work completed.

Not long after backing into the station, Cumberland County went under Status 3 conditions due to the storm. This required station manning. 7 volunteers provided coverage between the 2 stations.

The 5th call of the day happened to be a motorist who decided to drive around the barricades behind Station 1 and become stranded in the water. They were unable to make it out of the vehicle until the arrival of the Rescue.

While the Rescue was retrieving those occupants, the 1st Alarm assignment was sent to a Senior Care facility for a unknown type fire in an apartment. Crews found it to be a candlabra type light flickering in a window. No other services provided.

The 7th and final call came while crews were still on the above incident to Lisburn for a roof blown off the house. Rescue and Truck 12 responded and assisted with salvage operations.

Thank you to those who spent many hours today providing staffing and running calls of assistance!

Its been a busy week already and its only Humpday! Some of this weeks highlights are - Monday the Truck and E3 participated in the Camp Hill Memorial Day parade. It was nice to see so many township residents throughout the parade.
Following the parade units went to Colgate Rd n Center Rd's in Cedar Cliff Manor section of the township for an auto accident with a vehicle on its side.

Tues crews went to a local school to assist with removing a childs hand which was stuck in a desk. That evening we ran a crash on Lisburn Rd near the Hempt Quarry where a vehicle left the roadway after striking another vehicle and went thru a fence. Thanks also goes to the multiple Corrrections Officers from SCIC who stopped to assist.
After clearing that accident the Rescue was returning and went to assist in East Pennsboro Rt 15 @ Rt 581 for a serious accident. The Rescue arrived first an provided lighting an other assistance for 2 hrs.

Wednesday evening our members finished up a class on forcible entry with a practical session at the station. This amongst a few other calls for assisting the PD with a gasoline leak and some AFA's.

If you would like to join us or just learn more.... Stop by sta 1 @ the township building around 7pm on a Wednesday and we would love to show you around.

? One of the reasons I would love to study accident reconstruction. I can understand rollover being broadsided, i can see over an embankment. How did this happen?

Glad all are okay.

Chris Arnold you leave town and look what happened!

Making his own exit?

Looks like you were trying to park it......

How in the world did this happen? Another driver on a cell phone?

Last night after training, Truck 12 with 4 was dispatched to assist Harrisburg City on the 2nd alarm assignment for a row home fire. The crew assisted with extinguishing a fire on the 3rd floor of a home, across the street (behind where this picture was taken). This was caused due to flying embers from the main fire building. The crew then assisted in getting Wagon 3 back inservice. Thank you to Capital City Fire Photos for the use of the photo. ... See MoreSee Less
