For the past several weeks,Garden Spot Fire Rescue and Case New Holland have been working together on their Confined Space Program. This week GSFR members were at the CNH farm practicing accessing elevated entry points with Truck 39, reviewed hazards, identified energy isolation points, and walked through the silos at the farm.
GSFR would like to thank CNH Industrial for the opportunity to train and develop a pre-incident plan at the facility, in an effort to be prepared in case of an emergency. ... See MoreSee Less

Over the summer, our friends at the American Legion contacted us and asked if we could display our nations colors as the American Legion Riders began their annual covered bridge ride.
After the ride, they contacted us and said they would like to donate a new flag to replace our 14 year old 4'x9' flag.
Last evening, Asst. Chief Stefan Kuenzli attended the riders monthly meeting and graciously accepted a brand new 10'x19' flag. This flag will be displayed during special events and ceremonies as well as firefighter funerals for years to come.
We thank the American Legion Post 662 and the Riders, Sons & Auxiliary for continually taking an active role within the community of New Holland.Donated flag to Garden Spot Fire Rescue. ... See MoreSee Less

As many of you may have noticed, our West Main St. station (Sta. 2) had a new concrete pad poured in the front of the station to address the broken and aged asphalt.
During this time, members have tackled some other projects in the station that have been made easier to do with the bay's empty. Projects include, painting all of the gear lockers, repainting our apparatus backing lines and sealing the bays floors.
We would like to extend a huge thank you to Sindall Transport for allowing us to house our fire trucks as a temporary firehouse while the projects have taken place!
The apparatus should be back in station by Tuesday evening.
Thank you to the many members that have given time to help see the successful completion of the projects!! ... See MoreSee Less
Looks great guys.... #PRIDE
Calling all walkers!
GSFR is in need of a few good volunteers, who might like to support us in the parade, Wed. Oct. 4.
Volunteers could be spouses, responsible children, or community members who wouldn’t mind giving some time and steps! Specifically, we are in need of some people to walk with the GSFR squad car, hauling the 1918 LaFrance. We will be advertising an anniversary event which will take place next year, by passing out the Save-the-Date cards to the parade watchers.
If you think you can give a little time to the fire company on parade night, please e-mail us at firstname.lastname@example.org, and we can give you the meetup information.
No experience necessary, just a little heart! 💛
Thanks, Allison Cuthie
