NEW BOAT

 OUR NEW MARINE RESCUE UNIT HAS ARRIVED!

Thanks to a very generous donation from a member of the community, (who wishes to remain anonymous), we were able to purchase this G3 tunnel hull boat. It comes with an 80 hp Yamaha 4 stroke outboard motor and can operate in only six inches of water while on plane. It will be equipped to do a variety of water rescues and can also transport patients if needed. The boat will be in service soon and will be used in our coverage area at Lake Nockamixon as well as providing mutual aid to the fire companies along the Delaware River and other area lakes.


A special shout out to Jeff "Swamper" Bryan, who picked up the bill for the striping and lettering which was done by Scottie Kania at Scottie Designs and Lettering, and of course to our anonymous benefactor. THANK YOU!!!!


If you happen to see us out and about on a training exercise, please stop and say hi !


   


 

Not Something You See Every Day

Thursday, September 8, 2016 15:42  Yesterday at approximately 3:50 PM Ottsville (station 49), Haycock (Station 63), West End (station 18) and medics 142 and 141 were dispatched to a call for an auto extrication for a male who was working in an excavator when a maple tree fell on the machine and crushed the cab, entrapping the man. Crews quickly responded and worked for 20 minutes to free the operator. He was then transported to the hospital by medics. Everyone did an amazing job and truly showed the skills and dedication of the local fire company‚Äôs. Great job to all!
