Easter Egg Hunt

     Due to the cold weather and snow we received this morning, our annual Easter egg hunt has been postponed and will be held tomorrow (Sunday, March 29) at 2 p.m. Bring your children with something to collect eggs and other goodies. Three prizes will also be handed out in each of the four age groups (0-2, 3-5, 6-8, 9-12).

Late Night/Early Morning on 11/15

     Just before 2:00 a.m. Sunday, Engine 1-21 responded to the area of 11/15 and 2nd Street in West Fairview for an auto-accident. Engine 16 and Rescue 20 arrived to find one vehicle involved, with utility poles and power lines being affected.

     In order to protect travelers, it was decided that 11/15 be completely shut down in both directions until PP&L could mitigate the problem. Crews remained on-scene until about 4:30 a.m.

Help us help you

     If you come across a hydrant in your neighborhood which is not accessible due to snow build-up, we encourage you to shovel it. Having to shovel a hydrant once we get on scene only takes a moment, but we count on saving as many seconds as possible to provide as much help as quick as we can.

     While out and about, we have noticed a nice job being done by you guys to keep your hydrants clear. For that, we greatly thank you and look forward to your continued support!

Change Your Clocks, Change Your Batteries

     The Creekside Volunteer Fire Company reminds you to set your clocks ahead one hour around 2 a.m. Sunday. It's also the perfect time to change the batteries in your smoke detector, which should be switched twice a year as well.

     If you or anyone you know is in need of smoke detectors, feel free to give us a call at  (717) 732-0121.  Detectors are free and will be provided on a first-come, first-serve basis.
