Simultaneous calls :
At 18:07 station 39 and 44(Intercourse) were dispatched for a motor vehicle accident in the area of Peter's road and New Holland rd in Earl Township. Rescue 39 along with units from station 44 handled this incident.
At the same time, 39 units were advised of several ducklings stuck in a storm drain on Daisy drive in Earl Township.
Truck 39 responded to assist the distressed ducklings. The Truck crew made 6 immediate grabs from the nearest storm drain upon arriving on scene. After these ducklings were safe, they spent several minutes convincing the last remaining duckling to waddle its way out of the center of the pipe towards a rescue personal. With some convincing, the duckling obliged and was reunited with its siblings. Several minutes later all seven rescued ducklings were reunited with their mother. ... See MoreSee Less

Social distancing kept the children from the annual Easter Egg Hunt held at American Legion Post 662 (New Holland) in New Holland this year. But the Easter Bunny was saddened and wanted to say hello to all the kids. Easter Bunny enlisted the help of the area emergency services. With the help of New Holland Police Department, New Holland Ambulance and Garden Spot Fire Rescue, the cotton tailed character was paraded through town to say hello. With lights flashing and sirens wailing everyone knew he was coming. The Easter Bunny standing tall on the rear of Truck 39 put a lot of smiles on children faces as they jumped and waved as he went by. ... See MoreSee Less
