Yeah, when I went through at 6:45am, I notice it looked your someone went and scrapped garbage which was a lot of cardboard into Stan Graybill Auto Service's driveway. I thought that looked strange.
How was this caused? Was the back of the truck raised by mistake?
There is a ton of cardboard in the street at S. Custer and Franklin.
Yeah i took this photo this morning
Love u guys!!
Kerry W. Davis probably never operated one of these huh?
Hempfield (Co. 69) was sent to the Black Knight Tavern for an automatic fire alarm around 4am, the assignment was quickly upgraded to a building fire. Initial arriving units encountered fire on all floors of the structure. Command requested a 2nd alarm then 3rd alarm, bringing units from all across central and north western Lancaster Co.
Truck 39 was dispatched for a cover assignment to station 69 while units continued operating at the fire.
While en route to the station transfer, command 69 requested Truck 39 to scene. Arriving this late into an incident can prove challenging for apparatus positioning. Truck 39 accessed side “A” via a driveway across the road and utilized the onboard hose ramps to cross a charged 5” to get positioning.
Once setup, Truck 39 operated with Truck 75 ( Fire Department Mount Joy) and Truck 67 (Rohrerstown Fire Company) checking for fire extension and hot spots in the roof and attic areas.
Truck 39 operated on scene for approximately 2 hours before being released by command. ... See MoreSee Less
Thank you for your service.
Koni Hench use of hose ramps!

Rest in Peace Chief.
It takes just a few minutes and can be the reason we saved your life or property! Help your neighbor if you can. Let’s make sure all hydrants are cleared immediately.
We ask our members to hook up a hydrant in under two minutes. This gives us the water supply in under four minutes - the average time to empty the tanks on one of our engines.
Imagine waiting for five minutes because the firefighters are clearing hydrants instead of doing their job - helping you!
Let’s step up and get them cleared as a community! ... See MoreSee Less

PLEASE CLEAR YOUR NEAREST HYDRANT!!
Our VOLUNTEERS have staffed 3 fire stations for 48 hours, giving 832 Manhours to ensure a timely response to any emergencies due to road conditions.
With a few minutes of your time to clear one hydrant will prevent our volunteers from having to spend hours of their day off again clearing 100’s of hydrants. ... See MoreSee Less

Last evening, units from GSFR and EMS were dispatched to New Holland Rd for an injury crash, upon response, the assignment was upgraded with reports of one person trapped.
Units arrived to find a vehicle approximately 200’ into a field that had rolled at least once, landing upright with one subject still inside.
Crews carried equipment through the field and coordinated with EMS on an extrication plan. The driver side doors and “B” post were removed for access.
Units cleared the scene and spent time sorting and cleaning up equipment from operating in the field. ... See MoreSee Less
Would love to know exactly where this took place on New Holland Road
Just south of Eastern School Rd as you start up the hill.
Rescue 39 was requested as the 2nd due Rescue by Honey Brook (Chester sta. 33) to assist their crews with an accident with entrapment on Rt. 10 south of Honey Brook Borough.
Units from 33 arrived to find a dump truck pulling a trailer with a construction lift chained to the trailer. The trailer and lift had overturned onto a pickup truck.
Rescue 39 and Squad 39-1 arrived and sent all of the large cribbing on board up to the scene. Crews from 33 & 39 worked with the Heavy wrecker crews on scene to secure and stabilize the construction lift on top of the pickup. Once stabilized and out of the way crews continued extrication and disassembly of the lift to gain access. ... See MoreSee Less
