Wednesday evening just before 10:00 PM, Station 114 was dispatched for a reported house fire on Donahue Road in our district. Chief 114 was notified from State Police on scene that he had all occupants out of the home and a heavy on the rear. Engine 114 arrived on scene and immediately stretched multiple hand lines and a blitz line, along with also feeding Truck 91. Crews were able to quickly knock the bulk of the fire down and make entry into the home keeping damage as ￼minimal as possible. Crews from Lloydsville were assisted by Unity Township Fire Bureau, as well as Hempfield Twp, City of Greensburg, Mt. Pleasant Twp, and New Alexander Boro. Thank you to Ligonier Boro and South Greensburg for holding standby crews while we were out. Special thank you to Derry Twp VFD for bringing their hose roller and assisting in clean up and packing of hose.
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.
