If you are frying a turkey this year, make sure you place your fryer on a sturdy surface away from your home, eaves and trees.
Santa Claus will be coming to Plumsteadville on Sunday, Dec 13th! Save the date and spread the word.
As with everything this year, our annual Santa run will look a bit different.
While Santa will be riding on the top of our Fire Trucks as he normally does there will be less elves this year to be able to follow social distancing guidelines. All of our volunteers will be wearing masks and gloves.
Santa will leave the fire house at approximately 10:00am so listen for the sirens to indicate that he and his firetruck are on the way to a street near you! Also keep checking Facebook for updates on his location.
Please remember to wear masks and stay 6 feet apart from anyone who is not in your immediate household.
We will be handing out individually wrapped candy canes and ask if you would like one, to please come out to the curb.
Santa will visit Arbor Estates, Monday, December 21st at approximately 7:30 pm.

Keep your family safe by teaching them the basic steps to remember when caught on fire: STOP, DROP and Roll.
Fire incidents often occur in the most unexpected times, putting both lives and property at risk.
Learning how to extinguish fire on a person’s clothes or hair without firefighting equipment is an important component of fire safety.
Basic steps to remember when caught on fire:
STOP – Do not run and do not panic.
DROP – Drop to the ground and lie down flat with legs out straight. Cover eyes and mouth with hands to avoid facial injury.
ROLL – Roll around until the flames are out. A rug may also be used to smother the fire by rolling it around the body.
