This is going to be a class you don’t want to miss! Please share this post and let’s pack the house. We only have 227 seat available!
So, what creations did you come up with during yesterday’s snow? This snowman comes to us from Firefighter Brian Freas and his family. We would love to see what you have created, post your pictures below in the comments and let’s see what you got!
And just in case anyone forgot, make sure that you adopt your closest fire hydrant and dig it out! The more area cleared around it, the easier it is to access in the event of an emergency!
Thank you to Kevin Lytle for adopting your hydrant on School Street!
Ladies and gentlemen, boy and girls of school age, the Perkiomen Valley School District has announced... NO SCHOOL TOMORROW!!!! While we can hear the kids screaming all over the area, we can also hear the groans of the parents as well. 🤣
We however will be open for business shall the need arise. Please stay off the roads as they are still aweful and allow the plow trucks to do their job. Stay safe and have a great night everyone! Thank you for all who have engaged and helped entertain us doing this storm.
The members of the CFC have been working up quite an appetite today. So far we have run 3 calls and have logged many hours on the shovels around the station. We have had an average of 12 members on hand staffing the Station thus far today.
If you haven’t gone to get bread and milk for your milk sandwiches, right now is not the time. Later tonight isn’t looking good either! The roads are covered and pretty slick, so please just stay home.
Today is a perfect day to perfect your snowman building, building an awesome snow fort or just stay inside curled up with some hot chocolate catching up on Chicago Fire. By the way, is anyone else excited about the Chicago Fire movie event tomorrow night?
Stay safe everyone. We will provide some more coverage later on this snow event.
In a non-weather related post, the members of the Collegeville Fire Company would like to wish Firefighter Patrick Rush a happy birthday. Some may notice that I left off the junior in his title. That is because Patrick is 18 today!!!! Awe they grow up so fast😭. After a few formalities, Patrick will trade in his red helmet symbolizing his junior status and will be joining the big kids table of black helmets!
Happy Birthday, Patrick! Enjoy your unplanned day off from school!!!
Happy First Day of Spring! It feels as though Mother Nature is confused again as flurries are falling instead of tulips blooming. If you are not aware, Perkiomen Valley has an early dismissal, so there may be kids doing kid things a little earlier than some are used to.
We will try and refrain from posting predictions of the snow fall until the forecasters can figure out what model they should be looking at. Some of our members are currently debating the Cindy Crawford model or the Farrah model. I hate to tell them it’s the wrong “model”. Stay safe and warm everyone!
With the accuracy of the last few forecasts, this is the most reliable representation we have (picture below). As of now it looks like some more snow is in our future, but as models change by the day, we will not post any of them until the storm is closer.
As always with any storm, please make sure you have some extra non-perishable food, water and some extra blankets. For those with generators, make sure you have them vented outside and only plug in what your equipment can handle.
As always, the CFC will be well prepared to handle whatever this storm decides to do. After the last storm we learned that milk sandwiches are not very popular around the station and will be adjusting our menu accordingly. 🤢
Thank you, Perkiomen Township Fire Company for hosting the class!
Tonight members from Station’s 66 (Perkiomen), 77 (Trappe), 34 (Collegeville), and 87 (Upper Frederick) are refreshing on Hazardous Material Operations at our S...tation. This is a yearly refresher class required for fire company personnel to be ready for any Hazardous Material Incident that we may respond to. A Big Thanks to Vincent’s Pizzeria for the donation of pizza tonight for the first responders attending this evening’s class! Vincent's Pizzeria & Grill
Ladies and gentlemen, you’ve heard us elude to a building project. We’ve been posting pictures we found “cleaning out the station”. Well, it’s official, we’re getting a new Station! With that being said, we will be moving into a temporary station while the old building comes down and the new one goes up.
We will be temporarily located at 3rd and Walnut. Many members have been putting their literal blood, sweat and tears into the temporary Station to have it ready to move in. We will begin to occupy the building the first week of April.
We will keep everyone up to date on the demolition of our current station and the building of our new Station. Thank you to everyone who has had a hand in this process, your efforts have not gone unnoticed!
The members of the Collegeville Fire Company would like to wish everyone a Happy St. Patrick’s Day! On the day when St. Patrick comes down from heaven and turns everyone Irish for a day, we want to remind everyone to be responsible if they decide to partake in any “bar activities”, green beer will intoxicate you the same as non-green beer. Remember that one moment of foolishness can cost a lifetime of pain.
If you see a bunch of our members wandering aimlessly around the fir...ehouse this morning, I may have told them a little leprechaun left them a little surprise.
For all of those not participating in the festivities of the day and are looking for someone else to celebrate, we’ve just learned that you are in luck!!! Today is also the feast day of St. Gertrude, the patron saint of cats and the people who love them! So rejoice and celebrate the original cat lady!!!
We now return you to your St, Patty’s day celebrations!
LADIES AND GENTLEMEN, WE’VE OFFICIALLY REACHED 2500 LIKES!!!!! We can not thank you enough for the attention that you have given our page. We hope that so far everyone is finding it informative and fun! Keep sharing our page with all your friends and family!
Around 10:36 hours today, the members of the Collegeville Fire Company were dispatched for a reported vehicle fire at the CVS located on Park Ave at 2nd Ave. MCEDS reported a vehicle into the side of the building. Upon arrival, Chief 34(Murphy)advised that all occupants were out of the vehicle and there was no active fire. Squad 34 responded with six personnel and upon arrival secured the vehicle. Squad and Chief 34 remained on location until the vehicle was removed by DeWane’s Garage. The CFC was assisted by Trappe Fire Company No. 1 Ambulance, Collegeville Borough Police Department and DeWane’s Garage as well as two personnel from Collegeville Fire Company Fire Police.
Well it’s that time of year again where we set our clocks an hour ahead, change our smoke detector and CO detector batteries and suffer for months trying to gain that hour of sleep back.
In all seriousness, this is the perfect time to check your smoke detector and CO detector batteries. Doing this ensures that both will work properly in the event they are needed. Just be careful if using ladders or step stools to reach your detectors. You don’t need any visits from the nice Paramedics. Make sure you have spotters and some one to secure your ladder or step stool.
