We respond to a variety of calls ranging from automatic alarms and smoke investigations to structure fires, water rescues and QRS / medical assists. Our primary response area consists of all of Jacobus Borough, and parts of Springfield and York Townships. if you have any questions or suggestions, please feel free to contact us and please visit our guest book before leaving. Again, thank you for visiting our site
Today around 1700 hours crews were dispatched to a garage fire. Crews were already at lake Redmond for a boat in distress call and split crews to respond to the fire. Fire was under control in 20-30 minutes after dispatch. Engine 18-1 laid 1000 feet of 5 inch hose to reach the fire. Thank you to all our mutual aid. And as a side note all 3 people in distress on the lake were ok.
Thank you everyone who helped with the Blast today. Not only members who worked today but also the assistance our fire police got from outside organizations and also thank you Loganville Station 63 and York Township Station 19 for your help today.
