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

Thank you to all of our dedicated volunteers for their service. I only wish I could get a list of what companies (i.e. Stations) represent which communities so they can also be acknowledged. Back in the day it was "Garden City Fire Company" Now it is Station ##. So an old-timer former smoke-eater, who only knows names, not station numbers, is in the dark!.
Today several of our members attended the Memorial Service for Past President Lawrence “Larry” Luder. Larry was a member of the Swarthmore Fire & Protective Assn. - Station 14 for 50+ years. He will be deeply missed by all. ... See MoreSee Less
