Appearing & Equipped KME Pumper Apparatus in the state; and Best
Appearing & Equipped Pumper 2006 to 2012 2nd Place
A note to those not in the Fire Service - in addition to firefighting,
EMS and other community events, firefighters occasionally go all out for
a parade. The bonding experience when
dozens of firefighters spend hundreds of hours preparing a truck is
invaluable. Over 2 weeks some spent a few hours, some spent 100+ hours
checking every piece of equipment and every part of the truck to assure
all was perfectly clean, placed, marked and ready for professional
judges to rate our work.PS Stop by October 12 for Fire Prevention Week Open House and see just how clean and ready to roll this truck is. :-)

been a busy 2 days for us (and a lot of area Fire Companies). Wednesday Tower
34 was called to cover Springfield 44 as they battled a house fire. The crew
was eventually called in to the scene for overhaul as the 1st in firefighters
took a break and hydrated.
On return Company 34 was called twice during the night for a strong odor of
natural gas on Darby Rd. PECO was trying to alleviate a stuck valve, and
This morning at 08:55 Llanerch was dispatched with Brookline and Manoa for a
working house fire on Edgewood Rd. Firefighters driving to the station could
see the header from the fire and knew there was work ahead.
4 Llanerch crew were in on the inside attack and Llanerch's 1st in engine laid
the supply line from the fire to the hydrant, then manned the hydrant. All 3 Llanerch
fire apparatus were on scene, along with our Ambulance.
In the pictures you'll see a bystanders photo of the fire before anyone
arrived, a shot afterward, and a great shot of Teamwork in action afterward.
When help is needed, before, during or after a fire, it shows up. All Haverford
Twp Fire Companies ended up at the scene, as did Broomal for the RIT and

Courtesy of the Pennsylvania Fire & Emergency Services Institute (PFESI)Fire Concerns Lead PECO To Halt Smart Meter Installations PHILADELPHIA -After at least two fires and over a dozen incidents of overheating, PECO is halting its controversial smart meter installation program.The stunning announcement came Wednesday morning as FOX 29 Investigates pressed the company over a spate of recent incidents, including fires in Bucks County.PECO had plans to install 1.6 million of the so-called smart meters.The digital units are designed to conserve energy and help customers monitor their usage.But
over the past few months, concerns and complaints have grown that the
installation of these new meters have sparked fires, including two
recently in Bucks County.Now, PECO is stopping installations as it takes a hard look at the meters and prepares to put safety measures in place"Is
PECO concerned that it has 186,000 meters in people's homes here that
may represent a danger to them and their families?" FOX 29's Jeff Cole
situation is obviously being taken very seriously," PECO spokeswoman
Cathy Engle Menendez answered. "We have 186,000 meters, the vast
majority of which are performing well., but we've had 15 cases where
there have been issues."Of the 15 incidents, PECO says it is still investigating nine. Six, they claim, were not caused by the smart meters.Along
with the abrupt halt of the meter installations, PECO says it will
install warning and shutdown components on those already in place.In his video report for Wednesday's FOX 29 News at 10, Cole spoke to some of the property owners who were impacted by the fires.If you want your PECO meter or equipment inspected, officials there want you to give them a call. The number is 855-741-9011. Llanerch Fire Co adds:Of course if you have any doubt or suspicion about a fire, call 911 right away
