Big Success

Tuesday, July 22, 2014  LETTER FROM THE RED CROSS:

Thanks for hosting a tremendous first American Red Cross blood drive!

The goal for the day was to have 20 pints of blood donated and the final results were the following:


45 people signed up in advance,

31 people actually registered to give blood &

31 pints of blood were donated!

155% goal achievement! OUTSTANDING!!!


Since each pint donated can benefit as many as three patients, approximately 93 local area patients may benefit from the generosity of the donors that gave blood at Llanerch Fire Company on Tuesday, July 22, 2014. Please extend our sincere thanks to everyone who supported, recruited, volunteered and for use of the space. We are greatly appreciative of your efforts, especially since we just went on a media appeal due to the blood shortage in our region.

If you need anything additional don’t hesitate to ask and hopefully we can either make this an annual event of bi-annual event the decision is yours, either way I look forward to working with all of you again on future drive.



Jeanna Savage / Account Executive American Red Cross

32% of the donors were LFC members or family.

Great effort coordinated by Ass't Chief Leonard.




Monday, July 14, 2014  Firefighter/EMT Jack Welsh also has a gardening business. He donates many of the culled or leftovers he comes across. Station34 looking good this year with some dramatic Canna Lilies.



Woodland Dr house fire

Friday, June 20, 2014 2:40 PM Some of the best pictures from Wednesday's fire were taken by the Main Line Time's Pete Bannan (a former Llanerch Firefighter & Fire Officer). This link gets you to those pictures and shows the effort needed when fighting a fire in such heat. All the Haverford Fire Companies were needed, plus Springfield Fire Company. Collingdale, Newtown Square and Highland Park, plus Marple EMS helped cover the town while we were all on scene.There were many tired firefighters, but none injured.
