West leechburg fire department would like to say how amazing it was seeing all the happy kids out running arou d enjoying a fun evening of trick or treating. With the 356 detour in affect a few firemen made sure the busy road of piper was slowed down and all kids and adults were safe getting across the road. With a limited number of people we werent able to be at our station like we hoped but we all enjoyed seeing the community and all the different costumes!! Something as big as trick or treat wouldnt be as big ifnit wasnt for EVERYONE in the community!! We do our part but a big thanks to those who handed out candy!! Truely a full community event!

With all that being said we had one person come to us asking if anyone had found a key fob for a honda civic. If anyone happens to find it you can message our page and we can get it to the correct person or if you know someone who may have seen it. Hopefully we can all work together to get her keys back to her!!

Its been a busy few days for our men and women of station 52.

Members went tuesday evening for the firemens funeral of former fire chief and long time firemen don nickels of station 99. Wensday morning a few members assisted with also helping at the funeral and giving don his final ride ontop of engine 99-2. Rest in peace chief, watch over all your brothers and sisters as we take it from here.

Fast forward to thursday morning. A couple members took 2 trucks ,tanker 52 and squad 52, to david leech elementary school for fire prevention day along with station 150 leechburg who took thier tower. Members put on all gear and let kids see and feel what we are like, so incase of an emergency they know who we are. After, we took groups around each truck answering any questions they had and showing them the tools of the trade. Leechburg firemen used thier tower to play a target game using each classes teacher dropping ducks on a target from 35ft in the air. Everyone had an awesome time and enjoying answering all the questions and seeing all the happy faces!!

With a busy few days our members still took a short time to check all pur equipment for dead batteries and low scba air bottles. Ready for any call we shall be called for.

Friday 9-3-2021 at 2:03am tanker 52 was activated to assist with water shuttles in avonmore for a commercial fire. Tanker went enroute with a crew of 4 and arriving on scene was put right to work hauling water from a hydrant off route 156 to a dump tank on railroad avenue. Fighting the heavy fog and dense smoke from the scene tanker 52 made roughly 9 trips working over a span of 5 hours to supply water for snorkle 50 while they used the tower to fight the fire. Assisting on railroad avenue was kiski townships engine pumping water to snorkle 50 and burrell township and slickville running water to scene. Everyone on scene did an awesome job at staying safe and keeping an eye on one another. Back in service around 8am, the crew of 4 washed a few hose sections that where used and then off to work we went. A big thank you to the salvation army for handing out food and drinks to keep everyone going!!
