Last night for drill, members went to a walk through of the new building being built at the Springhaven Country Club. After returning to the station, members began to familiarize themselves with our new vehicle extraction tool. We will be training on the tool for the next few weeks before it will be placed in service. During drill, Ladder 65 responded to Upland Borough for a reported building fire. The assignment was scaled back and Ladder 65 returned to quarters to continue with drill. ... See MoreSee Less

Hallelujah!! It’s been awful long!!
It’s that time of year again!! The 11th annual Garden City Fire Company Golf Outing will be held on October 19, 2020.
The outing will continue to be held at The SpringHaven Club. However, due to Covid-19 restrictions, there will not be the traditional dinner banquet following golf. Many of the other traditions of the day will continue, including the continental breakfast, lunch on the course, free drink tickets, and kegs of beer on the course.
Due to the Covid-19 restrictions, we will also not be able to have such a large amount of door prizes as in the past. As a result, all golfers will be provided complimentary gifts upon arriving at the course.
Please be sure to include a good contact email for at least one member of your foursome should you need to be contacted for additional information or updates pertaining to golf and the pandemic.
Once again we look forward to seeing everyone in October and THANK YOU for your continued support through this trying year. ... See MoreSee Less

Thanks to all the men and women who volunteer to put their time and lives on the line to keep our community safe!
As always: Thanks to the men and women of Station 65 for all that you do! Day and night, in any kind of weather, sunny skies or thunder storms, blazing hot or freezing cold: You are always there protecting your neighbors!
That's a real problem when electric crosses the cable lines. Whoops
How do wires catch fire? Is it storm related??

I continue each day that I hear the siren of Station 65 to thank my lucky stars that your men and women are volunteering to provide outstanding service to our communities---and as is the case in this situation---to our surrounding communities as well. And then I say a prayer "BE SAFE"...

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. Joseph (Brother Joe) Delia was presented a pin for 60 years of service to the fire company. Brother Joe has been a dedicated member of the company and continues to do so today. 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!
