Changing Of The Guard

Posted on September 30, 2019

Squad 56 is officially retired and will now serve time with a Fire Company in PA. The truck served the department well since 2004 running hundreds of accidents and other calls for help. As the department has grown and calls for service continue to climb a new state of the art truck was needed to carry more gear and more rescue equipment on it to serve the needs of the town. So look for the beast around town.  "To see the finished truck go to the Projects/Files/Forms and click on Rescue 55 compleate"

Firefighters Train With Live Fire

Posted on September 22, 2019

Recently  firefighters went to the Somerset County Fire Academy and used there Phase 5 live training prop.  Firefighters were sent into real fire Scenario’s training on basement fires and first floor fires as well as roof ventilation. Firefighters got a true idea of how hot it can get in these situations and trying to find victim’s in the thick black smoke. Everyone was excused but great training always pays off.
