As the nights are getting cooler and the urge to have outside fires is getting stronger please remember the following rules.
The burning of yard waste is prohibited. Smoke from open burning, embers, and stray sparks can cause damage to property, health issues, and be a nuisance. Approved portable outdoor fireplaces are permitted for use. Outdoor fire places shall be used according to the manufactures instructions and shall not be operated within 15 feet of a structure or combustible material. Portable outdoor fireplaces shall be constantly attended until the fire is extinguished. There shall be on site fire extinguishing equipment such as a fire extinguisher, garden hose, sand, or dirt readily available. In the event the burning in an outdoor fire place becomes a nuisance the fire department, police department, and fire marshal’s office are authorized to have the fire extinguished. To notify authorities of prohibited burning or a nuisance dial 911.

Pennsylvania Office of the State Fire Commissioner
FACT: In 1970, there were more than 300,000 volunteer firefighters in Pennsylvania. Today, there are about 36,000.
The Pennsylvania Office of the State Fire Commissioner is playing an important role in identifying and addressing some of the key factors responsible for the volunteer shortage.
We’re always thrilled to see young volunteers, like those featured in this piece⤵️, showing up in our communities’ fire departments. We encourage young Pennsylvanians to visit local fire companies to learn what they do and how to help!
At the end of 2018 members of LSFD decided to purchase a new Rescue-Engine after a yearlong process of specking out a new piece of apparatus. This new truck will replace the 2002 Rescue which was sold earlier this year.
We would like to share this process with you as we watch our new truck being built.
The new Rescue-Engine will be multi functional and will be able to handle Engine and Rescue functions as needed.

Last evening LSFD, Feasterville Fire Company and Tri Hampton Rescue squad attended the 2nd Friday event at Playwicki Farm.
