Harmony Fire Department

(5)

Harmony Fire Department is a 100% volunteer organization that provides Fire and First Response Medical assistance to the City of Elmendorf and rural areas of Bexar County covering a total of 122 square miles and have been doing so for over 50 years. Every year, the resident and business population grows larger and so does the call volume. We are always in acceptance of volunteers looking to join the service or to further their education. We train every Monday night with the exception of Holidays. If you are interested in becoming a firefighter, stop by on any training night to fill out an application. There is a 4 month probationary period where your skills, both physically and professionally will be tested. You must be 18 years or older to join the department. Harmony Fire Dept does accept Junior Members for ages 16-17 with a Full Member Sponsor. We are always accepting donations to continue delivering the best service as possible to our community. Thank you for your continued support. Sincerely, Harmony Fire Department.

Brush 127 Bravo is officially road ready. LT Rusty Cottrell is shown adding scene lights to the back of it. He has done a lot of leg work to get us to this point and we are extremely thankful for everything he's done. 250 gallon quick attack which will be a great asset for getting to fires quickly. Thanks to everyone involved including Scott and his team over at Rescue Rescue.

New York City Fire Department (FDNY)

"The New York Task Force-1 team is a compilation of FDNY and NYPD members, all from Special Operations. We're being deployed from New York City to Texas to help in rescue and recovery. We are set to stage in San Antonio and we're going to await orders depending on the severity of the damage. We are set up for all types of rescues, including swiftwater rescues. We have a compilation of tools that include boats, motors, dry suits, rescue equipment for collapsed structures, rope equipment for confined spaces, and a large compilation of Haz-Mat equipment and tools. We're also supplied with a large, self-sufficient cache of food and supplies that make us sustainable for up to 72 hours in a row. I believe we're ready to face any danger," says FDNY Battalion Chief Jack Flatley, Task Force Leader of New York City’s elite Urban Search and Rescue Team (USAR) NY Task Force-1, which was deployed in the early hours of Sunday, August 27, to assist those affected by Hurricane Harvey. The team is comprised of FDNY and NYPD members trained to respond to catastrophic events, and it has been activated in the past to assist with emergency response throughout the world, including Hurricane Katrina and the 2010 earthquake in Haiti. In 2016, the team rescued/removed over 100 people affected by Hurricane Matthew in North Carolina. FDNY Rescue Paramedic Silvana Uzcategui says, "We are trained to save lives before patients are extricated from natural or man-made disasters. Our role in Texas is to provide medical care, to take care of civilians and the task force members. We're in the disaster zone. We're expecting torrential rains, winds, floods, and chaotic conditions. We're ready for it."
