This morning our Department along with Depew , Bomansville, & Millgrove. Provided traffic control for the annual Boys/Girls Club 10k . Thank you to all those who gave up their time to make this another safe successful race & thank you to the public for your patience and understanding of the road closures. On top of that I finished the last 3/4 miles with the last runner who was well over 80 years old and I was a little disappointed that there was only a couple of people left to cheer him on at the finish line so a clapped my hands and cheered for him myself then shook his hand and told him he was my hero.

On behalf of the Lancaster Fire Department have a safe and joyous July 4th

National Fuel

National Fuel

With the anticipated snow accumulation over this weekend, National Fuel reminds all homeowners that snow and ice pose a variety of safety and performance issues to their heating systems.

Natural gas furnaces and fireplaces each have a vent pipe or flue that sends out exhaust and gaseous by-products to the outdoors. Depending on the type of furnace, venting takes place through a pipe on the outside of the house or through the chimney. These furnace exhaust vents can easily become clogged with debris, ice or snow. When snow piles up and blocks furnace vents, your furnace could shut off as a safety measure. Other times, it can cause furnaces to operate inefficiently or stop running altogether and break down. Blocked vents can lead to a build-up of carbon monoxide gas. Homeowners should make sure that their furnace vents are clear of snow, ice, debris or other obstructions. The same applies to your dryer vent; if it is blocked, your dryer may not operate as efficiently as it should.

Keep the area around and above the outdoor gas meter free of snow and ice. Remember to use caution when shoveling, plowing or snow blowing around the meter. Use a broom to remove snow from the meter itself. To avoid accidental damage by a third party, inform anyone who works near your meter (such as a snow removal service) of its location.

If you are experiencing an emergency due to the extreme cold weather, please call our emergency number at 1-800-444-3130. This line is available 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

As always, if you smell gas, leave fast! If a rotten-egg natural gas odor is present, leave the premises immediately without turning on or off any electrical appliances and call National Fuel's emergency line (1-800-444-3130) from a different location. If you smell an odor of gas outdoors, please call National Fuel’s emergency number and provide the address nearest to the site of the odor.

Town Line Volunteer Fire Department

Town Line Volunteer Fire Department

Our hearts are heavy today as we share the news of the passing of Past Chief Norman Weber.

Chief Weber was from the founding families of the Town Line Volunteer Fire Department. The Webers are to Town Line Fire Department, what smoke is to fire. Where there is one, there is the other. The Weber name is synonymous with TLFD and goes back to 1936 when Mike Weber, Norm’s father, served as chief for an unprecedented 26 years. It is rumored that Chief Weber’s crib was the front seat of a fire truck.

Throughout his years in the fire department, Chief Weber always chose to be proactive in his involvement. He was known for his innovative thinking, commitment to safety, and endless dedication towards providing effective training. He was an adviser to the Explorer Post, instrumental in developing the current Out of District Program as well as our Active Restricted Program for 16 and 17 year olds. Chief Weber also participated in or headed countless committees including the purchase of two “twin” fire engines, the large building expansion project at Station 1 and the purchase of the Metz Aerial from Germany. His contributions are far too great to list and his presence at the firehouse has been missed the past several years.

Most notably, however, were Chief Weber’s years served in the position of Chief beginning in 1970 and 1971 and then again from 2002 to 2005. Chief Weber also served between the offices of Deputy Chief and Assistant Chief from 1994 to 2001. Chief Weber even celebrated his 50th and 51st year of service in the office of Chief.

Chief Weber is known for many things but, most notably for always having a story to fit any and every occasion. His “Let me tell you a story” are some of the most dreaded words in the English language. If you had the good fortune to meet Norm, you knew that while you would be in for a very, very long story, you would learn something fascinating each time and leave the conversation wiser because of it.

To know Chief Weber was to know a man that was determined, driven, and downright stubborn at times. But to know Chief Weber was to also know that he gave to our department his entire heart. His passion for both the fire service and the department were evident in all that he accomplished during his 53 years in active service.

We send our thoughts and prayers to the Weber family as they grieve and to everyone throughout Lancaster, Alden, and Erie County whose lives he touched.

Rest easy, Chief. We’ll take it from here.

Last night at our Department meeting our most senior active firefighter changed his status from active to life member after dedicating 67yrs of his life to responding to calls . Thank you Al Rinow for your service & dedication. When I got home last night I really started thinking what an accomplishment this is and the fires and changes he has seen through out the years of his service , he saw his Company receive 3 brand new pumpers starting with a 1954 Young/ Maxim ending w/ a 2005 LaFrance,his original gear was an aluminum helmet,rubber coat, rubber hip boots, the amount of fires he must of seen and fought ( Western Auto ,Woofies,Oelkers Furniture Co.,Weil Lumber,Rozler block),and that got me thinking about the days before technology I would sit at the hall and talk to my brother and sister firefighters about these things and how much I enjoyed these conversations . So I’m challenging our members this year to put away our cellphones and so forth and spend a little more time getting to know one another, you might be surprised on how much we have in common.( I know sometimes I think to much but what the heck ). 9-1

Congratulations to Al Rinow on being inducted to the Erie County Fire Wall of Fame this evening. Al has been a member of LFD for 64 years and the last 15 he was Dept. Chaplain. Al has always been there for our members in a time of need wether it was an illness or a wake and the 36 years I’ve known him he’s always looked at the positive side of people. A true role model! Once again Al congratulations it was well deserved.
