Mt. Penn Fire Company

Steady into September

Well, August is history and here we are in September already. August became our busiest month in department history with 73 calls logged for everything from trees and wires to vehicle crashes and a few structure fire calls thrown in for good measure along with other odds and ends. Our all volunteer staff has done excellent work keeping up with things and resolving everything thrown their way.

September seems to be continuing the steady pace with several calls logged already, the most serious so far being a vehicle crash about 1:45a.m. on September 2. A vehicle on North Bingaman St. struck a stone wall, went across the road and came to rest against a tree. Fortunately both occupants were able to get out on their own and only suffered minor injuries. They were taken to Reading Hospital for treatment. Crews from Exeter and Mt. Penn powered down and secured the vehicle and then removed a large amount of debris from the road. Everybody was able to clear and return by 2:15a.m.
