This weekend we will be honored to escort Santa around our first due area delivering treats to children.
Saturday starting at 8:00 am in the N. Enola area and will also be in West Fairview area after 11:00 am. Look and listen for when we are in your neighborhood.
Sunday starting at 12:00 in the greater Summerdale area. This route is marked with yellow Santa stop signs as to where we will stop to deliver treats instead of at each house as we are trying a new program out to promote safety to the children and more on time schedule. The stops for Sunday are planned below. As a reminder, we always try our best to hit as many streets as possible and stay in our time range but weather, emergencies and other issues always play a factor.

The Officers and Members of the Northeast Fire & Rescue would like to wish everyone a safe and Happy Thanksgiving. Below are some safety tips to keep your family safe.
Statistics show that cooking fires nearly double on Thanksgiving Day. Thanksgiving Day home fires cause more property damage and claim more lives than home fires on other days. Unattended Cooking was by far the leading contributing factor in cooking fires and fire deaths.
1. Safety tips · Stay in the kitchen when you are cooking on the stovetop so you can keep an eye on the food. · Stay in the home when cooking your turkey and check on it frequently. · Keep children away from the stove. The stove will be hot and kids should stay 3 feet away. · Make sure kids stay away from hot food and liquids. The steam or splash from vegetables, gravy or coffee could cause serious burns. · Keep the floor clear so you don’t trip over kids, toys, pocketbooks or bags. · Keep knives out of the reach of children. · Be sure electric cords from an electric knife, coffee maker, plate warmer or mixer are not dangling off the counter within easy reach of a child. · Keep matches and utility lighters out of the reach of children — up high in a locked cabinet. · Never leave children alone in room with a lit candle. · Make sure your smoke alarms are working. Test them by pushing the test button.
