At our July monthly meeting, President Lou Didomenico presented a pin that no other member in the history of the fire company has ever received.

Thank you and congratulations Brother Joe! ... See MoreSee Less
Congratulations. And thank you for your commitment to the community!
Bother Joe is so much more than a dedicated volunteer. Joe is a genuinely good person, a example to all who have had the privilege to cross his path. I am confident that Joe will shun this new found celebrity with his signature humility but there is simply no one more worthy of celebration. Congratulations Joe!
Excellent work and a fine example. Thank you for your service!

That was my daughter and her boyfriend and I just want to say thank you to the fire company, police, etc. I wish I had gotten the names of the witnesses because they stayed and made sure everyone was ok. I didn't have shoes on because when I got the call I literally ran out of the house, and, this woman literally took off her shoes to try to give to me. There are good people in this world. Thank you, again to everyone!!
That road is dangerous. People always speed around there. I always put my turn signal on way before Hastings Ave. and drive slow. So afraid they are going to smash into my car. Slow down people!
Its the swerves!

With the holiday weekend right around the corner, we would like to remind everyone of the current laws and regulations in Pennsylvania regarding fireworks.
-Pennsylvanians are allowed to purchase “consumer fireworks,” which contain up to 50 milligrams of explosive material. This includes firecrackers, Roman candles and bottle rockets.
-Anything with more than 50 milligrams of explosives, like the professional-grade fireworks you’d see at a sports game or public festival, are still off-limits to the average consumer and require special licensing or permits.
-You must be more than 150 feet away from any “occupied structure” — defined as “any structure, vehicle or place adapted for overnight accommodation” or business — whether or not any people are present there.
-You can’t set them off on public or private property without express permission of the owner.
-You can’t set them off from, within or toward a building or vehicle.
-You can’t set them off if you’re under the influence of drugs or alcohol.
We hope everyone has a safe and fun holiday weekend and please remember to follow the above regulations! ... See MoreSee Less
