Last night at weekly training, members were sent through a short but complex confidence maze to ensure better communication skills with their partner, air conservation and hands on operations. While following a hose line, many obstacles were found along the way including: confined space, low hanging "wires," knot tying skills, hooking up hoses, building different equipment, ladders and finally RIT operations. These were all done in a darkened environment with there faces covered. Great job by those that tackled the course and worked well with their partners! ... See MoreSee Less

Per the Township’s page:
Mariner East 2 Hydro test:
This coming Saturday and Sunday (March 30th & 31st) the contractor installing the Mariner East 2 pipeline will be conducting a hydro test of the pipeline beginning at 7:00 am. The hydro test only uses air and water that is held in the pipe under pressure for several hours to insure the integrity of the pipeline.

When the air and water are released, there is sometimes a loud noise. This is normal and not a cause for alarm.

The work will take place near Sheepford Rd and Thompson Lane. Both roads, however, will remain open to traffic.

Roadway was opened around 1540.

I'm going to guess people assuming they dont have to yield in order to merge. They think they have the right of way at that on-ramp.

Lower Allen Fire Company No. 1
Last night the members and special guests of the LAFC held our yearly awards banquet. While we honored the Top Ten Responders, Top Training Hours and the combined President/Fire Chiefs Award. This year's award recipient for the President/Fire Chief's Award was given to Bill Zorn. Bill turned 80 in 2018 and the strike of midnight on New Year's, he stepped down as the lead Engineer / Township Budget liasion for the department. It was a great honor for his as he's been a member for almost 50 years and has served well in all aspects of each position he was in. We wish him well in his "retirement," even though he still makes a daily stop in to check on things. Join us in congratulating Bill for this well deserved honor. Thank you to Remember it in Glass for the plaque!William H. Zorn

****PSA for those living in the township and may need the Fire Department. Recently, we've had multiple residents call and leave us voice messages at the station requesting the fire department respond to their home for some sort of emergency situation. Many times, those messages aren't answered in a timely manner, delaying a response. If you do need us immediately, please call 911 or their non-emergency # 717-238-9676.

Damn that is one I won't forget. Shorty Matt n Tim Stoner myself n I think Emmy were around back shutting the gas off when it caved. We went scattering up n over the Hahn Engine . I think the 5 of us all needed new undies Lol lol lol . Thank God no one was injured or killed.

I remember that. The day before we were on the roof of the shopping center across the street where Sheetz is now removing heavy snow so there roof would not collapse along with 4 of my employees. George

I live close by and remember hearing all of the sirens, wondering what was going on and then hearing the collapse.

I was just thinking of this today. Joe and I just signed the lease, for the bagel shop and a few days later, this happened. We were very fortunate that it wasn't anywhere near our first location.

I was taking a quilting class at sew with us when this happened.

As one of the first of the responders on the scene, being inside during the collapse, and being 1 of the 3 FFs to make the double rescue, one of my most fulfilling days on the job...

The Duty Chief did an EXCELLENT job on this incident. He did the LOGICAL thing and held only the units he needed. By doing that, traffic was able to flow freely in both directions. 👍
