The predicted FIRE DANGER for
Friday April 12, 2019 is HIGH.
High fire danger means all fine dead fuels ignite readily and fires start easily from most causes. Unattended brush and camp fires are likely to escape. Fires spread rapidly and short distance spotting is common. Fires may become serious and their control difficult unless they are attacked successfully while small. Outdoor burning should be restricted to early morning and late evening hours. ... See MoreSee Less

Being a Volunteer fire Dept. means our members all have full time occupations and careers aside from all the time and work given to the fire dept.
Our ranks are filled with many “blue collar” and “white collar” occupations. We have many laborers and tradesmen such as welders, mechanics, fabricators, construction, truck drivers. Also, sales and business professionals as business owners, sales, nursing, finance, marketing, and teachers!
Those of you that receive the ELANCO news letter may have seen Mr. Straub, or as we know him, Sergeant Straub.
Volunteers come from many backgrounds and we are proud to have Sergeant Straub serving with us out of station 39-3! ... See MoreSee Less

This is sad...why can't we support our Garden Spot Fire Rescue?? Who comes to your property when there is a fire ?
GSFR units handled an alarm bells call on Tower Rd just before 3am.
At 9:13am Rescue 39 was on the street for an injury accident involving a school bus at Hoover Ave. & Conestoga St. in the borough. Units arrived to find a side impact crash in the middle of the intersection with all occupants out. 1 student was on board and treated for minor injuries on scene.
Just before 7pm Engines 39-1 and 39-2 were dispatched to the New Holland Sales Stables for a reported vehicle fire. Units arrived with a well involved Pickup truck which was quickly darkened down with 1 line. EMS was requested to the scene for a subject with minor burns. ... See MoreSee Less

Garden Spot Fire Rescue is a Fire Department filled with pride. Operating out of three stations, that pride shows strong within the stations themselves as well.
The members of each station have worked as groups over the last year to show their station pride by designing station patches that “tell their story”
These patches are currently ordered. Once they arrive and the members have their opportunity at them, we will open sales up to the public. Please stay tuned for further details soon regarding the sale of these patches! ... See MoreSee Less
