This weeks training was on the FAST board presented by Mike Horst of FAST Rescue Solutions. These boards are designed for rapid rescue of down firemen and are a huge asset to the fire service. Thank you Chief Horst for the presentation and training!FAST Rescue Solutions, Northeast Fire & Rescue and Support East Pennsboro's Firemen. Here’s a fire department who really gets it. They believe and utilize Rapid Intervention Teams on their ‘first due’ incidents. But that’s not all...they’re thinking outside the box and want to make certain they have a way to “Save Their Own...FAST” before the arrival of formal RIT. I want to thank Fire Commissioner Owen and Chief Matter for the opportunity to visit with East Pennsboro firemen to train and demo with the FAST Rescue Board. Looking forward to showing them some incredible rescue skills with their new BOARDS. #fiveordie ... See moreSee less

Josh Matter I’m glad to see you guys moving forward and FINALLY getting the station that is long overdue. It was an honor to be a member for the years that I was, and back in 2005 this station was long overdue to be replaced. Keep up the good work and hopefully you guys continue to receive support from the majority of the community you serve.
Randy Bender you have no clue. #1 I will say this is by far a huge benefit to the taxpayers and is proven by the dedication from the membership and the leadership of the administration and operational officers. This is way overdue. When it was just summerdale the size was tight. Now you have a totally of 3 companies that put the future and interest of the community first all ran out of this station. Yes the station in west Fairview is still open but I would say approximately 95% of all activities and operations are ran out of the summerdale station.
As a former member who was very active in the initial consolidation between Citizens and Summerdale I will tell you that it had nothing to do with money. The interest of the east pennsboro community was first and foremost. I am no longer in East Penn but am proud of how strong this company continues to be and its due to the hard work and dedication of each and every member. As Chief Matter stated. If your so concerned why not stop by and discuss everything with the hard working group. While your there why not fill out an application. #stepuporshutup
Is that a fact Mr. Bender? Are you a legit property owner in East Pennsboro Township who pays property tax? If so, we will be training tonight and I would love for you to stop by and discuss with us how you think it’s a waste of anything.
