Daylight Savings Time is here! Smoke Detector batteries still need to be changed every 6 months and tested monthly for function.
We recommend purchasing smoke or smoke/carbon monoxide alarms that have a 10 year battery in them.
Smoke alarms are only good for 10 years per the manufacturers. If its over 10 years replace it. If your not sure, look at the back of detector OR just replace it.
If you need assistance, we will be more than happy to help you or your family! ... See MoreSee Less

Do you see the boots?
Your Lower Allen Volunteer Fire Company has a tremendous need that someone like you could fill.
Do you see those coats up there waiting for the next emergency?
They are ready, but are worthless without a new community hero to put it on, and respond as we have for the past 92 years.
And of course, the firetrucks are fast and fierce, not to mention the coolest ride in town. But in order to continue caring for all of us, they need everyday people ready to ride.
Community people who understand that bad moments happen all around us. But we can be the help and hope to hold the line for their life.
About those boots, and that coat...
We have free gear and training waiting just for you, in addition to greater purpose and personal satisfaction. Something only found in serving the greater good. Your neighbors, family and friends.
Signup for a free, no obligation, ride along on real emergency calls with our first responders. Let them tell you why it's worth it.
You will be an observer and you will see that you have what it takes.
These boots are made for the courageous.

We need new volunteer firefighters to continue serving Lower Allen. Just the way we have as neighbors helping neighbors for over 90 years.
Volunteer usually seems like a word without benefit. But if you ask us, you will hear just how much serving others actually serves us.
Greater meaning. Personal satisfaction. Being the real reason someone is here today. Knowing you mattered in a moment.
But that's not to say there aren't tangible benefits.

Fire Prevention Week Wednesday Tip of the day!
Smoke alarms sense smoke well before you can, alerting you to danger. Smoke alarms need to be in every bedroom, outside of the sleeping areas (like a hallway), and on each level (including the basement) of your home. Do not put smoke alarms in your kitchen or bathrooms.
Choose an alarm that is listed with a testing laboratory, meaning it has met certain standards for protection.
For the best protection, use combination smoke and carbon monoxide alarms that are interconnected throughout the home. These can be installed by a qualified electrician, so that when one sounds, they all sound. This ensures you can hear the alarm no matter where in your home the alarm originates.
Don’t forget to test your smoke detectors! ... See MoreSee Less

Fire Prevention Week Tuesday Tip of the day!
“Fire won’t wait. Plan your escape.”
Home fire escape planning and practicing
It is important for everyone to plan and practice a home fire escape. Everyone needs to be prepared in advance, so that they know what to do when the smoke alarm sounds. Given that every home is different, every home fire escape plan will also be different.
Have a plan for everyone in the home. Children, older adults, and people with disabilities may need assistance to wake up and get out. Make sure that someone will help them!
Another great tip from the NFPA! ... See MoreSee Less

We are kicking off fire prevention week with a tip of the day!
Today’s homes burn faster than ever. You may have as little as two minutes (or even less time) to safely escape a home fire from the time the smoke alarm sounds.
Your ability to get out of a home during a fire depends on early warning from smoke alarms and advance planning.
Utilize the tools from NFPA to make your home fire safe! ... See MoreSee Less
