When is the gun raffle?

Regina Saylor Saturday, September 18th

I regret to inform everyone of the passing of Life Member John Titzel. John passed away yesterday (8/10/2021) at the Claremont Nursing Home in Carlisle, PA. John's love of the fire service & Lower Allen Fire Company started when he was a young boy who's Boy Scouts met in the fire hall at the original Fire House. It is believed that he joined when he was 16 years old and began his training. During his time at Lower Allen Fire Company he worked up through the ranks achieving Assistant Fire Chief. During his time here it also got him started in his advanced education that took him to the top of Hershey Med safety program. Also he started selling fire equipment and apparatus (Hahn). For a short time he was the LA Twp. Fire Marshal and later in his life he became a Twp Commissioner where he continued to look after the LAFC and it's future. Please keep his wife Helen and his 2 boys John & Arthur and their extended families in you thoughts and prayers. ... See MoreSee Less

It was a beautiful sight to see the arched ladders and the saluting members of the fire departments as we drove through the entrance to the cemetery. It was a true honor to know how loved and respected my brother-in-law was and how his life affected so many others. Rest in peace, Brad. You will be missed!

I would like to thank you for finding the time to help honor my dad! Truck 10 and 12, you looked professional as always. Thank you again it meant a lot to my family!

Is this just for Lower Allen resident students?

Camden Roberts

Amy Byers Shrauder no but the student does have to join their local fire department so if they live in Lemoyne, they would need to join West Shore Bureau of Fire ( Lemoyne’s local fd)

Lower Allen Fire Company No. 1 is it for seniors only? My son is a sophomore and recently joined Fairview Twp FD.. that is where we live

It is currently a program for seniors.

Kyan Joshua Interesting! I will look into it. Thank you!

At approximately 3:45 pm, a tree dislodged from the bank on Lisburn Road near Forge Road. The tree fell into the roadway, striking two vehicles. Public Safety resources are on scene working to extricate passengers, though it appears that one is deceased. Lisburn Road is closed between Woodcreek Drive and Old Forge Road. Power was knocked out over a large area, but is expected to be restored by 9:30 pm, with some areas already restored as of this writing. No further information is being released at this time. ...

Dustin Weese Truck 1out of service?

Kevin Brown probably didn't get out. Can't say if oos or not.

Dustin Weese it's funny in a way it.listed on the run but sitting in Station. It's the Ghost Truck 1 lol

A lot of equipment and a bad time for a call to come in due to people having to go to work shortly, turnout may not have been that good. It affects all of us.

Be safe

Gettysburg's chief is a career guy in Washington, DC and I think he was on shift in DC when this came in.

Kevin Brown Their CAD lists all the equipment dispatched, not all the equipment on scene. So even if a unit fails, it’s still listed on CAD because it was dispatched.

All the pics I saw had 33 on the address
