The Adamsburg and Community Volunteer Fire Department would like to invite local families to come and have breakfast with Santa!!
Santa will be making a stop at the ACVFD at 9:00 am on December 17th. There will be breakfast, cookies and treats handed out by Santa and his helpers.
This past weekend Members of Adamsburg, High Park VFD, and Rescue 14 participated in an ATV operations class. The class consisted of a few hours of instruction in the classroom and then practical operations using a course set up in a field. Firefighters trained and tested on our quad and UTV in the 32 degree weather with mild snow conditions. We would like to thank the instructor for coming out on this cold day to help train us as well as High Park VFD for the use of their grounds. Attached are some pictures of the class. (more…)
Throughout the last month the Adamsburg and Community Volunteer Fire Department has had the opportunity to interact with the community several times! ACVFD provided Fire Prevention Programs at West Hempfield Elementary School and West Hempfield Presbyterian Church Preschool. We have also participated in Halloween Parades in Greenridge, Rolling Hills and Arona Borough. The volunteers also patrolled during the Hempfield Townships halloween trick or treat hours helping to make sure everyone was safe! As firefighters, we often meet people at the worst times in their lives, the past events have given us the opportunity in a more fun and interactive way. We appreciate the invitations to these opportunities.
Fire Prevention Week starts October 9th. This week is a great time to review home evacuation plans, stop drop and roll, and check your smoke detectors! Adamsburg VFD will be attending the Hempfield – Greensburg Fire Prevention Day, please stop out at the Westmoreland Mall and see us and other area Fire Departments.
Hempfield Greensburg Fire Prevention Day
Station 10 and 61 with our combined response plan were dispatched to Main St. Arona Borough, near Hill Street for the Vehicle Crash with reported entrapment. Units arrived to find a single vehicle that had collided with a telephone pole then came to a rest on its side, trapping its lone occupant. (more…)
Just a friendly reminder that the Hempfield Community Days is this weekend! Once again we will be selling our famous fresh cut french fries. Be sure to stop by our booth to buy some fries and say hi to your local volunteers!
