In the spirit of giving, station 36 along with the Freeport Fire Department wanted to give back to a family in need. Together the 2 departments made 2 donations to 2 families in need in Buffalo Twp. Both memberships were more than happy to help others in need this year. Both departments were joined by Santa as he made an early appearance prior to his trip around Buffalo township tonight. Be on the lookout for the big guy and come out and see him. He will start making his rounds at 5:30PM

Many stations from around the AK Valley were asked to participate in a large scale high rise training incident. 36 House was also asked to participate in this drill approximately 10 firefighters from 36 attended. We had the new 135' E-One ladder as requested, and our brush truck. We were directed to put our ladder up to the roof of the structure to gain access to assist in lowering a patient. After that task was completed the crew of approximately 10 firefighters from 36 and 280 trucks ...
Sarver VFC recently purchased a 1989 E-One 135' foot ladder truck from Hightstown Fire Company in NJ. The truck was purchased for the many houses and businesses in the township that are just far enough off the hard roadways or steep and tight driveways to get other aerial apparatus in to. It has a 2000 GPM pump and 300 gallons of water. The company has been very happy with the purchase and are amazed at the condition the truck was kept in. We will be proud to serve our residents and sur...
It is never easy saying goodbye to a fellow firefighter and it's even harder saying goodbye to one of your own. It is with great sadness that we acknowledge the loss of Justin Stawinski, who was our Captain, a great paramedic, and one of our most active members of the company. Justin started out as a junior member and worked his way up the ranks. He was a role model to many, an awesome instructor when it came to training, on the call, or just simply when you needed help with whatever life th...
Station 36 and its members are always trying to stay on top of our game. To do this we do many hours of training including many hours of non department training. This week we were invited to the new gas well that XTO Energy is currently drilling along Harvey & Howes Run Road in Buffalo Township. We were there incase of an emergency, we would know exactly what to do. If there were ever a fire on the grounds or rig, XTO has actually adopted the NIMS (National Incident Management Syst...
Members from station 36 once again attended the National Fire Academy in Emmitsburg Md for the PA Weekend. This is the academy that many public servants from all across the country attend including FEMA workers, police officers, and Professional Firefighters. Every year for over the last decade station 36 members have attended. These are a non hands on type of classes. These are also needed in the fire service. These are more on the technical side of the service including the incident command...
During the weekly company 36 training crews went to Roenigk's pond on Ekastown Rd near the W. L. Roenigk bus garage. We completed operators drivers training, and pump training. We used a new piece of equipment that we purchased with a grant a few months ago. The new piece was a Turbo Draft, almost all fire trucks have a water draft system the only downfall with the system is you have to have hard suction lines and have to be close to your water source. With the Turbo Draft you...
Station 36 was requested to have medical personel stand by in areas of the Freeport trail on Monroe while the Freeport HS Cross Country held their annual 5K race. With it raining just before the race the trail was wet and slippery but that did not stop the runners from going. The race went as planned without any incident and no injuries. On scene was Brush 36. Congratulations to all of the runners.
