**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 “business 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!

A MESSAGE FROM LOWER ALLEN TOWNSHIP:

Trick or Treat Postponed, PIZZA STILL ON FOR TONIGHT.

Due to the impending weather, the official Trick or Treat Night for Lower Allen Township has been changed to Saturday, 11/2/19 from 6pm-8pm.

HOWEVER, the Lower Allen Township and Lisburn Community Fire Companies still have about 150 pizzas to hand out TONIGHT 6pm-8pm. Instead of going neighborhood to neighborhood and drawing children and parents into the streets, pizza will now be handed out at the fire stations. You can stop by Station 1 on Gettysburg Rd, Station 2 on Rupp Avenue, or Company 24 in Lisburn to get pizza and candy, as well as interact with police, fire, and EMS personnel.
