Mock Car Crash at Penncrest High School
Wednesday, May 1, 2013 
-
This morning the members participated in the annual mock car crash at Penncrest High School. This event is sponsored by State Farm Insurance and occurs every spring right before senior prom. Students get a first hand account of what can happen when you get behind the wheel, or ride with someone who is intoxicated and/or impaired. The demonstration is very graphic in nature, including simulated casualties of all degrees, but it sends a clear message to students. Drinking and driving are not the only thing that don't mix anymore. There are far many forms of impairment, including talking and texting, that can lead to devastating car crashes. Students looked on as their "classmates" were extricated from vehicles, transported away in ambulances and hearses, while others were placed into police custody during the incident. It's about as real as it gets. Thank you to State Farm for sponsoring this very important and beneficial service and to all our volunteers for coming out to help perform another successful demonstration. Chief 46 (Cairns) had Command for the incident while Engines 46-1 and 46-2 responded to perform extrication duties. Ambulances 46-7 and 46-7A responded to treat and transport the "injured" vehicle occupants.

Storm Tips
Friday, February 8, 2013 
-
As accumulating snow is expected in the area this evening into overnight, we would like to take a few moments to go over some important safety tips for you and your home. Even a couple inches of snow, when pushed by snow plows or snow throwers, can obstruct fire hydrants in parking lots and along roads. During a fire, seconds count. The extra minute removing snow from around fire hydrants my save your neighbor's home or yours. Please clear a (3) foot area around the hydrant to help ensure firefighters can connect their hoses to all ports on the hydrant. Keep your house numbers readily visible. Falling snow and snow plows can cover up the numbers on your mailbox or at the end of your driveway. If your power goes out, call your electric provider. Do Not Call 9-1-1. PECO can be reached 24 hours a day at 1-800-841-4141. Your help will be greatly appreciated.

Certificates of commendation along with overwhelming gratitude were presented by township council to several volunteers from the Rocky Run Fire Company (Lenni Heights and Lima Fire Companies) members for helping to save the life of a resident who was experiencing cardiac arrest on Nov. 16, 2012. About 8:19 p.m. on Nov. 16, the fire company and EMS were dispatched to a home in the Riddlewood section of the township for a man in cardiac arrest. Arriving first, Chief Collins saw the victim was not breathing and had no pulse. Immediately behind him was the engine crew who rapidly began CPR and applied the Automated External Defibrillator (AED). Minutes later the medics arrived and started their work while CPR continued until the patient began breathing on his own. The patient, now fully recovered, was on hand while township council Vice Chairman Mark Kirchgasser honored the firefighters at the most recent council meeting.  Chief Ken Collins (Lenni), Capt. Ian Tully as well as firefighters Vince Soster, Jake Bonney and Eric Warner. Chief Bill Caims (Lima), Assistant Chief George Pettit, Capt. Mike Groover as well as firefighters Brian Perakis and Sean Miller.

Thank you to the Delco Times for coverage.

Update on the Rocky Run Fire Company
Saturday, December 1, 2012 
-
Earlier this year, the members of the Lima and Lenni Heights Fire Companies held a meeting to pick a new name for the fire company that will be born out of merging the two organizations together.  That name, by a majority vote, was Rocky Run.  Since that vote, both companies have held numerous meetings between administrative members working on all the details required to start up a new organization while the tactical side has been participating in multiple training sessions and team building exercises.  October 1st, both companies have joined forces and are responding to emergencies as the Rocky Run Fire Company. While both Lima and Lenni Heights Fire Companies continue to exist as separate business entities, the joining of forces on the tactical (firefighting) side has allowed for many benefits to the community such as improved response times and greater number of trained responders at incidents.  You will continue to see Lima and Lenni Heights fire apparatus responding on calls but do not be surprised if you see different faces onboard them.  We are all working together for the betterment of the fire service and residents of Middletown as Rocky Run Fire Company.

Change Clocks, Replace Batteries in Smoke Alarms, Carbon Monoxide Detectors this Weekend
   
Friday, November 2, 2012 
-
State Fire Commissioner Ed Mann urges residents to change the
batteries in smoke alarms and carbon monoxide detectors when they turn their
clocks back this weekend.
“Tragically, every year in Pennsylvania, people require medical treatment or even
die due to carbon monoxide poisoning,” Mann said. “These devices are not
expensive, they save lives, and once they’re installed, need to be maintained
regularly.”
Working smoke alarms cut in half the risk of dying in a home fire. Worn or missing
batteries are the most common cause of a smoke alarm or carbon monoxide
detector malfunction. Changing the batteries at least once a year is one of the
simplest, most effective ways to prevent tragic deaths and injuries.
Carbon monoxide is created when combustible materials burn incompletely. Often
called “the silent killer,” it is an odorless, colorless, tasteless gas that can
incapacitate victims before they’re aware they’ve been exposed. Sources include
wood-burning fireplaces and stoves, gas-fired appliances, grills, generators and
motor vehicles. Symptoms of carbon monoxide poisoning are often mistaken for the
flu and include nausea, headaches, dizziness, disorientation and fatigue.
Before installing a detector or an alarm, Mann suggests writing the purchase date
inside the unit. Whether a unit is battery-powered or hardwired, the unit should be
replaced every 8-10 years.
Mann said this weekend also serves as an ideal time for families to review their
home evacuation plans. All family members should plan two ways to escape from
each room and practice escape routes with the entire family.
