Pool filling season is almost upon us.
Fuel prices have risen drastically.
The officers have decided that we will continue to offer pool water but the rates will vary and can potentially change from day to day, based on fuel prices.
Customs should expect to pay significantly more than in previous years.
We apologize in advance for the increased prices, but as a volunteer organization, we have to ensure we cover all costs associated with providing this service.
Thank you all for your continued support and understanding.
If you would like to arrange for water, please call the station at 717-543-5171 and leave a message.

Sincerely,

Decatur Fire Co. #1
Officers

The officers and members would like to extend our deepest sympathy and condolences to the family of one of our own, Life Member Ray Diven. Ray has been with Decatur Fire Co. #1 for many many years, holding many titles during his time at Decatur. Though not a blood relative, he was our “Uncle Ray”and we loved him dearly. Ray was a master when it came to his mechanical skills, be it with the trucks or any of the tools but especially with the chainsaws. If it wouldn’t run, you could bet money that Uncle Ray would get it going again and it would run better than it ever had before. Please keep his family and friends in your thoughts and prayers during this difficult time.
Rest easy Uncle Ray, we got it from here 💔

I would like to send a huge shout out to the lady that lives on Mailpouch Rd, just off 522, for bringing bottled water to the crew that was shutting the roadway down yesterday, July 6. Not only did she do that, but she offered her house to use and told us just to walk down if we needed more water or anything else. Your generosity was extremely appreciated. I wish I would have gotten your name, for that I apologize. Again, thank you, from the bottom of my heart!!
