Vandergrift Pennsylvania *A Fireman's Prayer*
"When I am called to duty, God, wherever the flames may rage,
give me strength to save a life, whatever be its age.
(9)

Help me embrace a little child before it is too late,
or save an older person from the horror of that fate. Enable me to be alert, and hear the weakest shout,
quickly and efficiently to put the fire out. I want to fill my calling, to give the best in me,
to guard my friend and neighbor, and protect his property. And if according to Your will I must answer death's call,
Bless with Your protecting hand, my family one and all. Amen."

Operating as usual

You may hear our sirens! The purpose of the sirens are to alert the Volunteer Fire Department members of an emergency. While we rely on other forms of communication such as pagers and cell phones, they have their short comings. Batteries die, pagers and cell phones are not on the person, text messaging and smart phone apps like Active 911 could be delayed, with some calls not coming through at all. The National Fire Protection Association recommends that there are at least 2 reliable means to alert firefighters. The siren gets the firefighters attention at any time.

It says to everyone, somebody needs help! When people in town hear the sirens, it tells them there’s an emergency going on somewhere and it helps with traffic. It warns citizens to be alert for volunteers responding to the firehouse and to watch out for fire trucks responding to an incident. When it’s your time of emergency, a siren reassures you that help is on the way!

Like the distance to the closest fire hydrant, fire sirens also help with the cost of homeowner’s insurance, counting as points toward a better score on an Insurance Services Office evaluation. The higher the score given to the fire department, the lower the insurance costs to the homeowner!

Please be aware of your surroundings when parking. Also be mindful when parking in alleys and at corners. Leave enough space for other cars or fire trucks if needed!

This is what fire fighters encountered today on Sumner. Someone parked right in front of the hydrant in front of the house on fire. Crews were able to get water, however, this is never acceptable. Our crews worked around this obstacle, as opposed to through it. #330forthe330

Does anybody have an early 1900 picture of the firehouse when they still had the bell to ring for the fireman? I have the Bell but don't know if it was station number 1 or 2. It was the downtown station that had a church next to it.
Come out to 32 Below on this hot summer evening for some ice cream and come over for some food!
