EMS training for the month was a review on medical emergencies related to altered mental status taught by Penn State Health EMS Physicians. Our inhouse EMT program hit the halfway mark this month wrapping up medical emergencies and have now transitioned into trauma emergencies.

Individual station fire training for the month had station 403 reviewing ladders and working on truck skills for our tower riders. Station 405 spent the evening working on hoseline advancement and engine company skills.

Joint department fire training for the month took our department to the Lancaster County Public Safety Training Center. The evening's topic was on searches. Crews completed several scenarios where they encountered low and zero visibility conditions and were required to complete search's for "victims".

This month we also had our largest fundraiser of the year, our 56th annual Spring Mud Sale. This event brings people from all over the country for this Friday Evening/All Day Saturday event. Preliminary numbers reporting this is our biggest fundraiser to date, Thank You all who came out and supported us!
