ACVFD Assists with 2020 Hempfield Area Senior Walk

Yesterday Firefighters participated in the 2020 Hempfield Senior Walk. While normally this is a walk through of each school they attended, the current pandemic requires creative solutions. Instead of a walk through, students did a drive through of each school, finishing up at the high school. Firefighters took our Engine to the West Hempfield Elementary School, the Rescue to West Hempfield Middle School, and the Quint to the Hempfield Area Senior High School.

Donation Helps Our COVID-19 Readiness

As with most everyone, we are having trouble finding necessary supplies to keep our Firefighters, Equipment, and Building disinfected and clean. While we were calling around trying to find some of these supplies to purchase, some friends that have long supported us with many projects and needs stepped up to help. Frank Porco and Mark Scozio, from Giant Eagle in Penn Twp. and White Oak, not only were able to find what we were looking for, they donated the items to us. We truly appreciate all of the help they and their stores have given us over the years. Thank you!

Notice for Hempfield Township Residents who have an Irwin (15642) zip code. Once again, it has come to our attention that you may have received a subscription request from one of the ambulance services that neighbor the western part of Hempfield Township. Due to the way the postal service handles mail routes, these were sent to residents of Hempfield Township. Our neighbors, Rescue 14 E.M.S. are the Ambulance providers for residents of the western section of Hempfield Township, including a section of Hempfield which has a 15642 (such as Rolling Hills, West Hempfield, Wendel (delivered mail) Green Ridge, Renaissance and the areas near these places) and a 15644 zip code (areas of Hempfield Township that border the west side of Jeanette). Rescue 14 apologizes for the confusion, however we have been unsuccessful trying to fix the issue. Rescue 14’s subscription drive will be arriving shortly. These subscriptions should only go to residents who reside in Rescue 14’s primary response area. Rescue 14 asks that you discard errant flyer and look for Rescue 14’s flyer for your yearly subscription. These should be hitting mailboxes soon.
