Don't Miss It: Chicken BBQ January 31
winter chicken BBQ is on January 31 at our station on Route 106. It
starts at 11 AM and will run until the food is gone! Tickets are only
$9. The menu includes a half-chicken, baked potatoe, baked beans, bun,
cole slaw and a desert!
After a year of planning, a
special membership meeting was called the last week of April to present
the committee’s recommendation. The membership unanimously passed the proposed rescue and a contract
was signed with Ferrara Fire Apparatus. The new apparatus is scheduled
for delivery in early 2016. Without the members hard work and dedication and the excellent support
of our community, this project would not be possible. Thank you for
all you do.
Production is moving along well on our new
heavy rescue. As you can see from the pics, the chassis is nearing completion.
Delivery is expected in February.
||Acting Rescue 18
many of you know, the Clifford Township Volunteer Fire Company takes a
very proactive approach to outfitting our responders with the most
up-to-date equipment to provide the best possible services to our
community and surrounding areas that is fiscally possible. In May
2014, a rescue committee was formed to begin design of a replacement
heavy rescue vehicle. As
the design continued to evolve at the committee level, the sale of our
then heavy rescue truck was completed to Justus Vol. Fire Company in
January. To continue to provide all the services to the community
in the interim, a reserve rescue was purchased from Wissahickon Fire
Department near Ambler, Pa.
This unit was placed into service on February 14th and is serving the
community well as we await the new rescue.
