A few shots from a second alarm that my department assisted on. Working fire in a grain tower. I hope to get more active with posts again soon. Just had alot of stuff going on..

and some more yet

Some shots of a boat fire that my department assisted on. First arriving Chief arrived with a well involved speedboat, toyota pickup truck and smoke showing from a 2 story garage

Some shots from Tropical Storm Lee..

Some shots through out the Lancaster area after Tropical Storm Lee..I was kinda hoping the two idiots that drove around the barricade and through the water would have gotten stuck..

More stuff

On September 10th, Lafayette Fire Company was dispatched for a reported building fire at the Historic Conestoga Inn Restaurant. Units arrived with a working fire in the duct work and some in the roof. This call is somewhat bittersweet as one of my long time friends passed away in the line of duty 15 days later while conducting a live burn

Some more stuff

On October 31st, my department was dispatched to assist Blue Rock Fire/Rescue on a gas leak. About 90 minutes into it, an explosion destroyed a house and what was the former John Herrs Market in Millersville.

Still around..

Back on September 11th, I participated in the 9/11 stair climb that was held in Lancaster. I am walking with 2 members of my department. I am carrying the helmet of a friend of mine who was a retired career shift commander for Springettsbury Township Fire and about 2 weeks prior to this, had passed away from cancer. I climbed 110 stories in 59 minutes. Not too bad I thought, I plan on doing it in full gear next year
