First Due Dwelling

Company 55 and mutual aid companies (E60, E53-1, Truck 50, Tanker 60, Tanker 53, Rescue 905 (RIT), EMS, and SRPD were dispatched to Brenneman Road in Pequea Township for a reported house fire. Assistant 50 arrived quickly, reporting heavy smoke from the attic area of a one story dwelling. Engine 60, already on the street returning from an event, was first arriving. E 60 advanced a line into the first floor of the structure and began attempts to access the seat of the fire. E 55-1 requested the working fire dispatch upon arrival, bringing engines from 50 and 66, and an additional tanker. E 55-1 crew entered to assist with suppression as Truck 50 vented the roof, near the A/D corner, and handled extension on a side porch area. The crew of E 55-1 quickly realized the need to access the attic area in order to quickly knock down the bulk of the fire, as crews pulling ceilings below the fire were having difficulty making large openings, due to some unconventional construction techniques. The majority of the fire was quickly knocked after access into the upper area was gained by 55. Extensive overhaul and salvage operations continued, with all hands working. Cause of the fire was determined to be a faulty chimney.

NDFC announces the loss of a life member
Sunday, January 31, 2016
-
It is with deep sorrow that NDFC announces the passing of life member Clyde W. Thomas. Clyde served in the role of company president and fire police captain for many years, only recently stepping down from those roles due to health concerns. He currently served as our vice president. Clyde joined NDFC as a teenager, following in the footsteps of his late father, who was an active member. He moved from the area for several years, and served as a fire policeman and ambulance attendant (pre EMT days) in the Lititz area. Upon moving back to the area, he became very active with NDFC. The fire company was clearly one of his passions. He spent countless hours on various projects, and was instrumental in the formation and operation of our banquet hall rental operation. Clyde also took great care of our grounds, and would often be seen mowing the property with his zero turn. NDFC thanks Clyde for his service, and he will be missed by all of the members. Link attached for funeral information.

125 YEARS OF SERVICE TO NDFC
Monday, December 14, 2015 20:00

The last regular monthly meeting of 2015 was slightly different than usual. Members and guests were present to present two life members with recognition and awards for 50 plus years of service to the company, and another member was presented with life membership for 25 years of service. Pequea Township Supervisor Reidenbach was present to assist with the award presentation on behalf of the township. Richard "Dick" Shenk joined NDFC around late 1962 or early 1963, and has been active since that time. He can't recall, nor do we have record of the exact date that he joined, but as he states "The '62 (pumper) was new when I joined." Dick has run a countless amount of calls over the years, along with serving as secretary, assistant chief, and fire chief. Dick is known to still show up for an occasional call. Clyde Thomas joined NDFC at age 14. Clyde has also been a very active member, and is our outgoing president after serving in that capacity for many years. Clyde also served many years in the recent past as a fire policeman and fire police captain. He was instrumental in the formation of our successful rental hall fundraiser, which continues to financially support NDFC today. Duane Thomas was presented with his life membership after serving for 25 years. Duane initially served as a fire policeman and in more recent years has been serving as an apparatus operator. Duane assists with many projects around the building and grounds. Thanks to these members for their years of service. Elected officers for 2016: President: Ken Stauffer Vice President: Clyde Thomas Secretary: Mike Kuntz Treasurer: Lori Haines Directors: James Haines, Christian Larrick, Brian Dieter, Connie Dieter Fire Chief: Brad Shenk Deputy Chief: Greg DeMascolo Asst. Chief: Christian Larrick Fire Police Capt: Brian Dieter

An evening on the farm

The first due area of Company 55 contains numerous working farms. Farm operations can present unique hazards to firefighters, should a fire or other emergency occur. The crew spent some time at a local dairy farm, where we reviewed several potential problem areas, including silos, manure storage areas, and livestock. Thanks to Dave Hess for providing us with the tour and valuable information.

 
   
   
Roadblock

Company 55 Fire Police were requested to detour traffic on Rt. 741 (Millersville Rd) due to the roadway being blocked at the entrance to the Outdoor World / Circle M campground. Fire Police from 60 (West Willow) and 66 (Lancaster Township) were also requested to assist. Chief 55 arrived finding a travel trailer that was hung up on an embankment, and completely blocking the roadway. RE 55-1 was added on to the incident, to provide stabilization, lighting, and spill control. 55 crew assisted the tow company with rigging the RV and clean up of oil, as the operator tore open his oil pan on a rock after missing the driveway. A large wrecker was brought in to place the RV back onto the roadway and remove it from the scene. 741 was closed about two hours during this incident.
