Sorry to inform you West Nottingham Township, Chester County, PA, but the local tax assessor had some pretty harsh words for your township back in 1766. In 1766, the tax assessor referred to Joseph Smith’s 100 acres as the “worst land in [the] world.” Worst land? Maybe to eighteenth century farmers, but ironically, today you can explore the natural beauty of this preserved serpentine barren, now part of Nottingham County Park.

State Police Warns Residents of the Dangers of Leaving Children in Hot Cars

Harrisburg, PA – As the commonwealth prepares for a weekend heatwave, the Pennsylvania State Police reminds parents and caregivers to never leave a child or pet unattended in a vehicle.

According to kidsandcars.org 21 children have died in hot cars in the United States so far this year. Since 1995, there have been 12 child heatstroke deaths in vehicles in Pennsylvania. The inside of a vehicle heats up very quickly, even with the windows are cracked. Studies show a child’s body overheats three to five times faster than an adult body.

Earlier this month, a new law went into effect in Pennsylvania to protect good Samaritans who rescue children in hot cars. The law protects a person from liability related to damaging a car or its contents if they believe a child is in imminent danger of suffering harm if not immediately removed from the vehicle. The person must make a reasonable effort to locate the vehicle’s owner, use no more force than is necessary to enter the vehicle, and remain at the scene until emergency responders arrive.

Parents or caregivers who leave a child in a hot car may face serious charges, including Endangering the Welfare of Children.

Helpfightfire.com Volunteer Recruitment "Adrenaline"

Fire stations across Chester County are in need of volunteers like you who are ready to help save lives and protect property right in their own backyard. That’s why last year the Chester County Fire Chiefs Association launched HelpFightFire.com to help make it easy to understand the many volunteer opportunities available. Plus there’s a volunteer inquiry form you can fill out that will allow members of your local fire station to contact you about your interest in becoming a volunteer and answer any questions you may have.

There are several ways to serve your local station, with open positions that will perfectly match your talents:

Firefighters: As a volunteer firefighter, you’ll learn skills like how to advance a hose line, perform search-and-rescue operations, and position ladders strategically. We’ll give you the training and equipment needed to stay safe at no cost to you..

EMTs: Our volunteer EMTs help save lives by transporting the sick and injured to the hospital. You’ll be there to respond to specialized calls like auto accidents, carbon monoxide alarms and other rescue calls. Again, the training and equipment will be provided for free.

Fire Police: Help keep an emergency situation safe by directing traffic and crowds and providing general assistance to other first responders.

Junior Firefighters: Teens at least 14 years old can gain experience around a fire house as a junior firefighter. You’ll lend a hand and begin fire training that will prepare you to become a full member at 18 years old. Volunteering as a junior firefighter is also a great way to secure community service hours and looks great on a college resume.

Administrative Volunteers: Non-emergency volunteers can also play a huge role. They help teach fire safety, assist in fundraising events, help with bookkeeping, human resources, website maintenance and other responsibilities. Whatever your skill set, we can use it!

By joining our team, you’ll help make us stronger and your community safer. So what are you waiting for? Go to HelpFightFire.com. Volunteer today. Chester County lives depend on it.

Check out these videos to see how these courageous men and women protect our community and how you can get involved. There is room for everybody!

Pennsylvania State Police Remind Pet Owners of “Hot Car Bill”

Harrisburg, PA – With warmer summer weather in the forecast, the Pennsylvania State Police remind animal owners to think about the health and safety of their pets.

In October 2018, Governor Tom Wolf signed Act 104 of 2018, otherwise known as the “Hot Car Bill.” The law provides protection for law enforcement and emergency responders when a dog or cat is removed from a motor vehicle when the animal is showing signs of distress.

The law states that an officer or emergency responder must have a good-faith and reasonable belief that the dog or cat is in imminent danger, make a reasonable effort to locate the driver of the motor vehicle, take reasonable steps to ensure or restore the well-being of the dog or cat, use no more force than necessary to enter the motor vehicle, and leave notice on the vehicle about where the dog or cat can be retrieved.

This law does not give civilians the authority to take this type of action. If you see a dog or cat in a motor vehicle that appears to be in distress, contact the local authorities. Do not enter the motor vehicle yourself.

“Properly caring for and protecting your pets should be a priority for all pet owners,” said State Police Animal Cruelty officer Michael Spada. “Utilize common sense and contact your local veterinarian if you have any questions or concerns.”

Animals can suffer from heat exhaustion and heat stroke just like humans. Both dogs and cats release heat through their paws and by panting. Ensure your pets have access to fresh, cool water and proper sustenance for the breed. Failure to do so could result in possible criminal charges.

Never forget.  Have a safe Memorial Day.
