Crews remained busy this morning handling 4 calls within two hours. The morning started off with reported wires down in the area of Waterville and Brookhaven roads. A short time later companies were dispatched to the 700 block of Kincaid Mills for wires down. Chief 65 arrived and found a power surge in the area with an odor of smoke in several homes as well as an emergency generator that was smoking. The assignment was then upgraded to a building response. Crews checked several houses for any signs of fire or smoke with negative results. The assignment was scaled back to Engine 65. As the engine returned from that call, the building assignment was dispatched to the 400 Block of Rutgers Ave in Swarthmore. Ladder 65 made the response. Companies investigated a power surge to the building with no smoke or fire. ... See MoreSee Less
Thank you to all of the men and women of the Garden City Fire Company! As a former volunteer in my youth at my local company each time I hear the siren sound I quickly say: "Please may they be safe..."
Heard all the sirens.

Turning your clocks back an hour this weekend is the perfect reminder to put new batteries in your smoke and carbon monoxide (CO) alarms! 🔋
Also remember to TEST your alarms once a month to make sure those batteries are working properly.

Members have been busy the past two days with school visits and fire prevention activities. Yesterday, the engine went over to Mother of Providence Regional Catholic School to speak to their younger kids on fire saftey and they got to check out some of the equipment we carry. Today, Nether ProvidenceElementarySchool took the short walk over to the station to also have a fire saftey talk and check out the equipment. Overall, we’ve had the pleasure to speak to over 400 children in our first due area. Our hope is that these children will take this information home and share it with their families so if there is ever an emergency at home, they will know exactly what to do! ... See MoreSee Less
