The Londonderry Fire Company has teamed up with WHTM 27 News and the Kidde Fire Systems to make sure that there are smoke detectors in every home. Through this program, WHTM 27 News has provided smoke detectors to our company for us to install in homes, free of charge. If you are in need of smoke detectors, please contact the Fire Cheif at 717-944-2175 and leave a message to set up a time for us to come out and install these free smoke detectors.
Work has finally begun on the renovation of our social hall and kitchen. There's a lot of dust and bare walls at the moment, but the finished product will be great. Keep an eye on facebook and the website for updates as the project progesses.
Londonderry Fire, EMS, and Fire police handled countless calls following the ice storm that covered our area in the early morning hours of February 4th. Calls poured in for tress and wires down all over the area. During this time crews all covered calls for a fall victim, motor vehicle accident, and smoking TV that resulted from a power surge when electric was restored.
Check out the link below for the "light show" that was caught on one of our wire down calls.
Crews responded to another crash on Vine St. at the 283 West bound ramp. Three patients were transported from the scene.
Londonderry Fire responds to two water rescue calls. The first one was on the Swatara Creek for an unknown object in the creek. Utility and Boat 54 responded to find an old scare crow that ended up in the water. The second call a short time later was to assist PSP for an individual walking on the ice at the Tri-County boat club. Utility and Boat 54 along with Middletown's Boat 88 responded to find an individual had gone across the river to Fall Island. Crews waited for the individual as he walked back to meet with rescue personnel and the State Police. No services needed and the rescue crews returned.
Londonderry Fire responded non emergency to extinguish this small rubbish fire on Water street by the Canal Lock.
