A Water Rescue Crew from Goodwill traveled all over York County today due to heavy rains that produced flooding. The crew partnered with the York County Advanced Technical Rescue Team and other Boat companies to rescue stranded motorists and evacuate citizens from their flooded homes.

Feel free to look around the pages to learn about our fire station.
At approximately 9:30 Monday evening Goodwill Fire Co. was called on a 2nd Alarm Structure Fire in Codorus Township (59-03 Box). Crews assisted at the scene and with an Engine Relay for water supply. Fire Police also responded and remained after the fire was out at request of the Fire Marshall.
The "Steer Clear" law requires drivers to move over or slow down when they encounter an incident along the side of the road.
When should you "Steer Clear":
a) Any Emergency Scenes
b) Any Traffic Stops
c) Any Roadside Personnel Responding to a Disabled Vehicle
Penalties under the Steer Clear Law:
- A fine of up to $250 for failing to move over or slow down
- Doubling of fines for other traffic violations occurring in "Emergency Response Areas"
- 90-day license suspension if violation results in injury to Workers or Emergency Personnel
(The law applies any time an emergency vehicle has its lights flashing and where road crews or emergency personnel have lighted flares, posted signs or tried to warn motorists.)
Note: If law enforcement is not present at the time, the law allows road workers and emergency responders to report violations by motorists. Citations can then be issued by police based on these reports.
We are out protecting you ... So please take the time to protect us !!!
