EAST PENNSBORO TWP. EMERGENCY SERVICES ANNUAL CARNIVAL
HOSS'S COMMUNITY NIGHT FUNDRAISER
Enola Fire Company along with the East Pennsboro Fire Department
would like to thank anyone and everyone that attended our Community
Night at Hoss's Steak and Seahouse in Enola. Your contribution
was very much appreciated.
Tonight, members participated in an informal training session with
local professionals regarding the basics of forcible entry.
Members used a simulator to force both inward and outward swinging
doors with hand tools as well as a hydraulic ram. Thank you to
the instructors Gilkey and Murphy for providing the instruction and
to Monroe Fire Company (Co. 25) for the use of your simulator.
Saint Patty's Day brought us a little luck with the
delivery of our new helmet frontices. A special thanks to
"Ain't Your Standard Issue"
for the fronts and the picture.
Companies 16 and 17 as well as several members from other township
organizations participated in our annual hazardous materials
operations refresher course. Didactic content was delivered in
the morning with a practical evolution in the afternoon. Crews
reviewed use and available forms of the Emergency Response
Guidebook, container identification and spill control methods.
Thanks to Instructor John Breive for teaching the class today as
well as the EPFD Training Committee for arranging the class.
DAY WITH TRAINING
Company 17 responded to 3 calls today, including a structure
response to the 30 Box. Truck 1-17 assisted with ventilation.
The day started with a sprinkler malfunction that resulted in
significant flooding in the 21 Box. In the afternoon, Utility
1-17 assisted with snow removal that was endangering a structure.
Training tonight included gas-powered equipment as well as a review
of Knox Box release procedures, electronic and paper map usage and
GREAT START TO THE YEAR
Crews responded to 3 alarms today. Two were AFA's in the 21-21
box. The other was a reported building fire at a nursing home
in Hampden Township. The company responded with Engine 17 and
Trucks 1 and 2-17. Thirteen personnel responded on the call.
Thank you to all the members for starting the year off well. Just a
reminder to our neighboring companies that you will still hear
Company 19 apparatus and box numbers until
Cumberland County DPS is
able to make the appropriate changes. The line officers will
be using their Company 17 designations. Thank you for your
understanding during the period of transition.
YEAR AND HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO US!
We hope everyone has had a safe and happy start to 2014. As of
midnight tonight, the Enola Fire Company No. 3 is open for business.
We are excited about the challenges that lie ahead of us this year
and look forward to making a positive impact in our community.
Our two websites (here and www.17tower.com) will likely be operating
for the month of January until the company can get together for
business. Visit our 'Officers' and 'History' pages for some updated
information. Best wishes to everyone for a happy and
prosperous new year! As always, think smart and stay safe East
