Engine 59 (OIC A/C Naylor) quickly responded with a total of 6 personnel. While responding EMS 59-A (Dale Richardson) went on scene reporting a working fire, fire through the roof of the garage threatening the house.

Looking to Upgrade Our Rescue Tools

Friday, June 13, 2014  Members have spent several evenings testing different brands of hydraulic rescue tools over the last few weeks. The department is looking to upgrade their nearly 13 year old system with a more updated one. As car manufacturers continue to build more advanced vehicles it is harder for departments to keep up on the modern technology. The department is looking to utilize a federal grant to try and obtain monies to help wit the upgrade.



Yearly Hose Testing

Friday, June 13, 2014  Members have spent numerous hours during the past month conducting hose testing. The National Fire Protection Agency (NFPA) requires all hoses used by the Fire Service be tested annually to their standard. The department has over 9,000 feet of hose both on the equipment and spare. Each foot of that hose must be pulled off the units and charged with water and then repacked back onto the unit.  It is a labor intensive job that requires a large number of personnel to complete. There are many different companies out there that  do this testing for the Department, but they charge a lot of money to complete the testing. The Department saves nearly $16,000 by completing this testing in house. A big thank you to all the members that came out and made this possible.



Congrats Adam Dell

Friday, June 6, 2014  Members took the night to go attend the graduation of Firefighter  Adam Dell from Susquehannock High School. In addition to excelling in football and wrestling Adam shows great potential as a valuable member of the department. Adam is currently taking his beginning classes and working toward his Firefighter I certification. Congratulations Adam!!!!

Gone But Not Forgotten

Sunday, April 27, 2014  Today we remember Chief Rodney Miller. Rodney was not only  the Chief of the Loganville Fire Company, but a husband, son, brother, friend and mentor. Rodney was the kind of person that brighten the day of everyone he would meet. We was always there when someone was in need of help no matter what the circumstances. One year ago today we lost Rodney while he was operating on a call on the Interstate. Though he is gone he has never been forgotten. Thoughts of Rodney remain with us, lessons are still learned, stories still told, laughs still laughed, tears still cried. Though we see today as a sad and somber day we know that Heaven is a better place now that he is there. We will continue to do our job with you in our memory till the day we meet again.
