On Tuesday evening, around 6:30PM, Lloydsville was activated for a public service detail. We were informed that there was a cat stuck in a storm drain in the Beatty Village neighborhood in our first due. Upon arrival, Chief 114 found there to be a cat in the drain under the roadway. After striking out with various different ideas, we decided to try to use a charged fire hose, having a member on both side of the road in the storm drain to push the cat to the other side. We used 1" forestry line and gently nudge the cat to the other side. This idea turned successful. The very cold, scared cat was removed from the storm drain. Over night the cat is being taken care of by our Associate Department Member Leanne Rubino who made arrangements with Action For Animas to take the cat in and have it examined by a vet. Great job to all involved.
Units on scene: Rescue Pumper 114, Chief 114

Have you ever thought about volunteering in your community but not sure how to do that? Have you ever wondered if your career skills could be useful in a volunteer application? Are you a CPA, bank teller, doctor, business executive, chef, or other professional looking to either boost your resume or just donate a few hours a week to help out your community? We have good news! The Lloydsville VFD is looking for you. Our organization is growing each year, and with that growth comes increased executive needs. Currently our firefighters are holding multiple offices and roles, ranging from fighting fires and performing rescues to writing grants, cooking for fundraisers, filing taxes, and paying bills. The department is interested in finding career professionals within our area who are interested in lending their expertise to help take those duties off the responding member’s hands so we can better train to handle your emergencies. If you feel you have even 2 hours a week you can donate to the department we are more than happy to sit down and talk to you. Your volunteerism is just as important to the organization as those who respond to emergencies. If interested, please contact the station at 724-537-9872.
