Winter Wonder Land

Date: 01-08-2010
Location: Hempfield Township 

With  snow falling for the past week and salt supplies running low Hempfield Township Public Works is operating in salt-conservation mode.  “At this time the township is salting hills, intersections, and emergency routes” said Volpe, Hempfield Township Public Works Director.   

During this time Adamsburg and Community Volunteer Fire Department is ready to respond to any emergency that may arise. We have the ability to “Chain” our apparatus to travel on snow covered roads if needed.  We also currently have two 4-wheel drive pick up trucks to assist in emergency responses where a fire engine may not necessarily be needed.   

We remind anyone that must travel in these conditions to allow extra time, travel slow, and use extreme caution.  Roadways may be hazardous at times.  We also remind you to use caution when traveling on the highway that may be clear of snow, then transitioning to some side streets that still need attention.    

Even in ACVFD’s state of readiness, we prefer YOU not to need us in an emergency.

Santa Claus took some time out of his busy schedule to visit Adamsburg and Community Volunteer Fire Department today.  Despite the heavy snow outside, his sleigh made it from the North Pole in time to enjoy breakfast with about 50 kids who braved the early winter snow storm to visit with Santa. Santa made sure to listen to all the boys and girls, and take down any last minute Christmas requests.  After visiting he passed out gift bags that contained candy, presents and fruit that were donated by local businesses.  (more…)
