This morning, the first due alarm was activated for a reported house fire just yards from our fire station. Upon arrival, crews held the box for an outside controlled burn with no need for fire department services. A few hours later, 114 Rescue was sent to assist Bradenville 71 on Industrial Blvd., Derry Township with a single vehicle accident, overturned, with multiple patients entrapped. Crews utilized a variety of tools and techniques in order to safely and efficiently extricate the injured patients. They were then transported to local trauma centers. As always, please have a safe and healthy Easter Sunday!
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.
The Lloydsville VFD offers Address Marker Signs, compliant with Unity Township codes, as well as other municipalities. Each sign costs $15.00, will feature white reflective letters against a green background, and will be made to either a vertical or horizontal design based on your request. If interested, call the firehouse, or leave a message with us under the contact us link.
