Adamsburg and Community VFD would like to Congratulate Rescue 14 on the delivery of a new ambulance. Rescue 14 received a 2015 Medix RP-90 from Penn-Care this week. In the next few weeks this ambulance will have the radios installed, graphics applied, and complete its state inspection. We look forward to seeing this truck out helping the community.

Adamsburg and Community VFD is looking for a 4WD Quad to be donated to our Department. Just about 10 years ago we won a John Deere Trailgator through a national contest; we then received grants to buy a med-bed for patient transport and a water tank/pump for brush fires. These interchangeable devices enable us to be ready for off-road fire and EMS emergencies and provide services at community events. In the past 2 years we have purchased an 18 ft. enclosed trailer to haul our Trailgator UTV and equipment through generous donations from many of our businesses.
This past year saw an upswing in emergency events, including quad and car fires (a mile or so off road), brush fires in inaccessible areas for normal apparatus, physical rescue where we had to bring a patient out of the woods and search details. These events could have used an auxiliary vehicle, such as a quad, to scout a way in, take persons and equipment back and forth to our gator and to use for large incidents for our OIC at the scene. If you are interested in donating such a vehicle, or know of someone who is interested please let us know. We are a 501 (C) (4) organization and your donation would be tax deductible. You, your family, friends, businesses and business contacts could help us with this project. The trailer is capable of holding a quad in addition to our Trailgator UTV, but it could not be wider than 4 ft. and no longer than the width of our trailer(approximately 6-7ft). I am sure that many of the people who we have helped, rescued and touch their lives with our current devices never thought they would need us. You can help now knowing that someday you may need one of these vehicles. You can contact Don Thoma, Chief @ 724-527-6250 or email@example.com if you want to help. The people we serve are generous, supportive and creative and we know that someone out there can help us achieve our goal… Thank you.
The Adamsburg and Community VFD was invited to 2 events in the past few days and would like to extend thanks for the invitations.
We would like to thank the Calvary Church for inviting us to their service on the 25th. The Calvary Church extended recognition and praise to the local Volunteers, Emergency Services, and Law Enforcement. The service was wonderful and the Volunteers appreciated the sincere event.
We were also invited to a Halloween Parade in the Greenridge section of our First Due Response Area. A crew brought the Engine out for the parade. The ACVFD took the opportunity to showcase a little of what we do, passed out a few items, and presented the truck for a few pictures. We would like to thank the residents for inviting us to this event. We appreciate this opportunity to interact with the families in the community.
The Rescue and Service made the trip to Westmoreland Mall for the annual Hempfield Fire Prevention night. Members participated in a Rescue Demonstration, Recruitment, and showing off the Rescue truck. Attached are some pictures of the activities. Attached are pictures of the rescue demonstration.
