Flood Awareness

Monday, March 17, 2014  Seems like one weather extreme to the other but as we go from winter to storm season. Help me keep my members safe and out of the water.  Turn Around Don't Drown. 

Flood Safety Awareness Week is March 16-22: Help us spread the word! TIP: Never attempt to drive or walk through flood waters -- it's difficult to gauge the true depth and speed of the water flow, and you could be swept away. More about #FloodSafety athttp://1.usa.gov/1i8lmTh from NOAA's U.S. National Weather Service.

Be Prepared

Saturday, March 1, 2014  The fire service is deep with tradition and a sense of loyalty to do extreme things at a moments notice.  Thinking of the Boy Scout Motto Be prepared always comes to mind when I am thinking of ways to challenge myself and others to get to the next level I realize there is one focal point each time, training.

 I think preparing today for tomorrows emergencies not only moves you to the next level but it gives you information to call back on when put into a life or death situation. I think what if we didn’t see the need to train our members in water rescue, equip ourselves to serve others and most importantly protect our members. That vision has paid off time after time.

The key to success for me is preparing people for the emergencies that we face, that they do it efficiently, safely, think outside the box and provide the best service to those in need.  Here is to the future how will you help.  Train like your life depends on it, because it does.  

Each time we hit the road I am proud of the people we have responding to calls and providing emergency services to the citizens of Upper Moreland.  Brian Focht Fire Chief.
