PA Starts Pushing Yellow Dot Program

People drive nearly everyday of their lives and sadly it has become one of the most dangerous activities for a person to do.  First responders are continuously improving their skills, techniques, and equipment to save lives during motor vehicle accidents, but no one has truly found a way to improve the situation when the victim is unresponsive or confused, until now.  When a responder can not place a name, medical history, or allergy list to the victim then all of a sudden common medical problems can be overlooked and life saving medicines can kill.

Brush Fire Training Drill

Pond Hill-Lily Lake Volunteer Fire Department will be having a brush fire based in-house drill on Saturday March 29th.  This drill will be geared towards preparing our members for the upcoming brush fire season.  This is also a good time to note that residents should watch what they are burning and always have a water source ready to put out any fire that begins to spread away from the source.  Please do not burn anything outside during a very dry, windy day.

An Endless Brotherhood

If you look at the members of Pond Hill-Lily Lake Fire Company you may see a group of individuals that are just trying to get by, however, this is far from the truth.  An aging fire station, a list of needed supplies that can’t even fit on a single piece of paper, and one of the smallest groups of members in the area; the challenges for PHLL’s firefighters seem endless.  However, when you ask one of them how life at the station is going you get a different attitude, a mindset that you do not see much of anymore.  You get a response that makes you feel like their station is brand new and their numbers are endless.  No member seems to complain about the old equipment, but instead they look forward to the new gear their next grant will get them.  Their members are happy to work for what they have and seem willing to work past all the issues.
