We would like to wish our friends at New Holland Ambulance and all of those serving in EMS out on the front lines well wishes.
Happy EMS week from GSFR!Daytime throughout the week, we have three paid personnel on staff. Our Chief, and two excellent employees who keep our first due truck staffed. But our 2nd, 3rd, and 4th ambulances are covered by our volunteers.
We would like to take this chance to thank businesses in the area who allow our volunteers to leave their jobs to run calls during the day.
Also, we appreciate the dedication of those of our volunteers who come in on days off, or who work nightshift and cover calls during the day, or even switch their work schedules around, to be able to staff a truck during the day.
We are committed to serving our community as best we can and we make sure that when you need us, whether day or night, that we are at your service!
Pictured below are several of our dedicated members.

*** Mutual Aid Fire ***
Around 1pm, Truck 39 was dispatched as part of the 1st alarm assignment to H M Stauffer in Leola to assist Upper Leacock (Co. 61) with a reported building fire.
Responding units were advised of multiple calls reporting flames and smoke from a building on the property. First arriving units found a small working fire in a lumber building and made quick work of the fire.
Truck 39 set ground ladders and assisted Truck 204 (MTFR) on the roof before going going inside to assist with opening up walls to check for hot spots. ... See MoreSee Less
At 02:21am Units from GSFR and mutual Aid were dispatched to Pleasant Dr. in East Earl Twp. for a reported house on fire in the area with possible people trapped.
PD arrived and reported everyone to be out.
Deputy 39 arrived confirming a working fire with fire showing from 2 sides and assumed command.
Truck 39 first arriving went interior and held the fire in check with 2 water cans while the rest of the crew split to ladder and search. Engine 39-3 arrived moments later and stretched a line inside. All visible fire was darkened down in a couple minutes.
All companies remained on scene checking for a extension and mop up for a little over an hour.
Prior to GSFR leaving, this home was supplied with several new working smoke detectors From which all 39 units carry to ensure all of our residents the best shot of making it out of a fire safely.
Thank you mutual Aid Weaverland Valley Fire Department Intercourse Fire Company White Horse Fire Company - Station 49 & New Holland Ambulance assisting on scene and Bareville Fire Company and Honey Brook Fire Company #1 for covering GSFR. ... See MoreSee Less

Jarred Garber Dustin Adrian Annette Darity Garber, dad discovered this fire when Cody had an early morning potty call. He worked frantically to wake the people up to get them out.While I called 911, so thankful the residents are safe!!
Why do people not put smoke detectors in their house?! Look at the statistics people, fire can happen to anyone and it will kill you quickly. Home Depot has detectors starting at $5 a piece!
Wow Ron-Elta Garber ! Thank goodness your dog had to go out!
Oh my goodness...so much to be thankful for. Glad everyone was ok.

*** ORLAN ROAD FIRE UPDATE ***
Initial call: 11:59am
2nd alarm: 12:05pm
Under control: 2:06pm
Final GSFR units cleared: 7:34pm
After restoring units and clean up: 21:45
GSFR had 54 personnel respond!
Because of apparatus positioning, line placement and an all out effort to save what could be saved the structure is not a complete loss and no other structures were adversely affected.
Thank you Chief 35 (Farmersville) for handling command and Chief 30 (weaverland Valley) for handling operations.
We would like to take moment to recognize the countless business's across the area that continue to allow their employees to leave work to respond to emergencies. Although it may inconvenience the business day from time to time, the cost savings for the municipalities and citizens in not having to pay for that same service is insurmountable.
THANK YOU business owners for your sacrifice and community support!
Thank you to Martin Mulch Products
For supplying an excavator and personnel to assist with overhaul.
Finally thank you to all of our mutual aid companies for providing apparatus and manpower!!

I live north of town and smoke is coming this way. There is a slight smell.
hey maybe we should move the vehicles so we don't end up with secondary fires? the building is on fire and they have vehicles parked up against it? the pictures all 3 show vehicles parked next to burning building the owners should be on site ask who owns them and get them moved?i Hope everyone is safe regardless. and prey for those who will be with out work till they open back up.stay safe all involved.
Another truck just flew by. Was going to fast to see which fire company it was from.
Praying for everyone's safety!
Prayers all are safe
