Please help us help you by keeping your neighborhood fire hydrants clear of snow after every snowfall. Clear a 3 foot path around the hydrant and a path to the roadway to the hydrant. This will help us quickly locate the fire hydrant and obtain a water supply in case of a fire.

At 1400 61 crews were dispatched to Cabela’s for an odor of natural gas in the building. Crews monitored the building and traced the source to vents on the roof being covered from the recent snow fall. Vents were cleared along with the building being remonitored to ensure it was safe to reoccupy.
This is a reminder on the importance of keeping all vents at your home and business free from snow. Be vigilant to keep your vents open to prevent the build up of Carbon Monoxide. Remember CO IS COLORLESS, ODORLESS, AND TASTLESS. Will be DEADLY if you don’t have a CO alarm to monitor its presence.

The morning started out with heading to I78 W in the area of M/M 25 for an MVA involving a tractor trailer. As freezing rain was now over taking our area things quickly grew worse. Between Shartlesville and Lenhartsville there were now reported multiple vehicle accidents all involving at least 1 if not more tractor trailers. With the aid of Fire Police and PENN Dot I78 was completely shut down in order for us to gain control of the scenes. The incident around MM 26 resulted in the tractor trailer loosing its load. Crews remained on the highway for several hours until debris and clean up could be completed. The highway was finally able to be reopened around 15oo hours.
