A new feature here at Lower Allen #membermonday. Today is a dual feature. These fine young men came to us in 2017 with ZERO Fire Dept experience and quickly moved through their training to be called our Truck Apes. Today, Nick Knull and Josh Rokowski start the Montgomery County Fire & Rescue, MD training academy to pursue careers as career firefighters. We wish them the best of luck over the next several months. (Photo courtesy of Jillian Stewart) ... See MoreSee Less

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.

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
