The complete meal was delivered to the station to show Sal's appreciation to the company for the service we provide to the community.


The menu included a garden salad, Penne Aurora, Baked Ziti, Chicken Parmigiana and mixed bread. The meal was delicious and everyone left the table having eat way more then we should have. We would like to thank Sal and his staff for a first class job!!!! It is always touching when someone from the community recognizes the sacrifices we make for our community. We don't ask for these gestures, we just go on doing our work but we are deeply humbled and thankful when someone takes the time to present us with such a thoughtful offering.

Informational Bulletin

Wednesday, June 12, 2013  As we no more let our guard down from the last heavy rain storm it appears we are bracing for round two. The Officers & Members have been closely monitoring the local forecast to see want to prepare for next. At this time it appears we could see heavy rains, strong winds and isolated strong thunderstorms. The possibility may exist for tornado activity east of the mountains. The timing of these storms are uncertain as of yet, but it appears we could see some storms overnight and and another round tomorrow afternoon and/or evening.


For residents that live in the Borough we ask that you keep a close eye out for our activity during the next 24-36 hours. Should we find the need to clear certain Borough streets of vehicles, due to approaching water, we will make announcements via loud speaker throughout the Borough. If this is the case we would need you to immediately relocate your vehicle(s) to a location in a higher part of town. Should the need arise to evacuate the Borough due to flooding we will first, activate the fire department siren and second, notify you via loud speaker throughout the Borough the need to evacuate. If the need should arise and a Tornado is near the area we will again blow the fire department siren for several minutes. In addition, we will attempt to notify you via loud speaker if conditions allow.  If our area is hit hard by these storms we will post non emergency phone numbers so residents can report non emergency type calls like trees & limbs down, flooded basements, and those type things. We will also be doing updates and postings on our Facebook page at www.facebook.com/GlenRockFire and on our Twitter page at GlenRockFD.


We appreciate your patience & uunderstanding during this time.
