We are saddened to learn that life member Diane Alwine, wife of former Chief and Board Chairman Leonard Alwine passed away unexpectedly yesterday at UPMC Altoona.

Our prayers are with Lenny during this difficult time. In the early years of the Grandview FD Fire Prevention “Bus” Program Diane could be found helping to deliver fire prevention education to children along side her husband - who was her one true love ❤️ For her efforts, she had been recognized with a fire prevention award by the Central District Fireman’s Association.

While Lenny does not appear on social media, we will be sure he sees any comments posted to this page.

We know in our hearts that Diane Alwine is now free of life’s burdens and soaring with the angels in heaven.

Arrangements are pending and being handled by Mauk and Yates funeral home.

A great safety message from our friends at PSP!

BLAIR PA ALERT: Tropical Depression Ida is heading to Central PA and we need to be prepared. Here is a list of some things you can do to get your home ready for withstand four or more inches of rain.

Gutters-Clean out your gutters. Even if you do not have any trees in your yard, your gutters are possibly be filled with leaves and debris.

Downspouts-Extend downspouts away from your house. Direct the water away from the foundation. Do not direct the water toward your neighbors’ foundation. Many people use extended downspouts or pipe to get the water into the street.

French drains-Do not allow the downspouts to flow into the French drains. Too much water in the French drain keeps water from escaping the foundation.

Clean interior drains-Make sure drains are clear of debris and household items. This also means all surface areas near the drains, which could block the drain, as water flows back through the drain.

Check your sump pump-Make sure the float on the pump is clear of obstructions. Ensure the pump is plugged in and functioning properly. Clean the area around the pit and make sure it is accessible. Have a backup battery charged. Do you have a plan if you are without power?

Check your generator-Start your generator to make sure it is in working order. Check the fuel and oil levels in the generator, and fill your spare gas can.

It is better to stay home during inclement weather, and limit unnecessary travel unless evacuation is necessary. If you do need to go out, take the following precautions during flooding situations:

Never drive through flooded roadways. Cars will float and leave the roadway. Small creeks can turn into rivers. Water is extremely powerful. Turn Around-Don’t Drown.

Be aware of flooded or blocked drains or culverts along roads and highways. These are designed to be lower than the roadway and can be very deep. Cars can become lodged in the drain by the suction of draining water.

Make sure you have fresh batteries in your flash light in the event of a power outage. Charge cell phones and cell phone chargers.

Have a “go kit” ready with several days’ supply of medication, clothing, and food for each member of your family, in the event you need to evacuate quickly. Have a written list of important phone numbers for family and friends.

Trees and wires down-During a severe storm or as the ground gets saturated, trees tend to fall down, often taking utility lines with them. Treat all downed utility lines as power lines or live electrical lines. Report downed lines to 911 and report power outages to your electric supplier.

Always remember to stay calm and be patient. A weather emergency is a strain on all emergency services. The 911 center, fire, police, and EMS departments will become overwhelmed with calls for service. Call the non-emergency number to report any non-emergency calls associated with the weather event. This number may be specific for the event, so stay tuned to local media and social media for updates on what number to call if you have to call the non-emergency number.

Check on neighbors, family, or friends that might need a little extra help.

Special thanks to the AAHS media class for helping us get our Fire Prevention message out to all the elementary students this year. Being unable to go into the schools, we had to improvise. The media class recorded and they are going to edit a video of our normal program, so the students can all watch it in class. #learnthesoundsoffiresafety #firepreventionweek Logan Township United Fire
