TODAYS FIRE DANGER LEVEL

Eastern Area – MODERATE
(Bucks, Montgomery, Delaware, Philadelphia)

Northern Area –MODERATE
(Berks, Lehigh, Northampton)

Southern AreaMODERATE
(Lancaster, Chester)

 

High fire danger means all fine dead fuels ignite readily and fires start easily from most causes.  Unattended brush and camp fires are likely to escape.  Fires spread rapidly and short distance spotting is common.  Fires may become serious and their control difficult unless they are attacked successfully while small.  Outdoor burning should be restricted to early morning and late evening hours.

Due to lack of interest the S-130 scheduled for Monday, September 19th thru Saturday, September 24th has been cancelled.  If anyone is still interested in taking this course or would be interested in taking the PA-130 course instead please contact me directly.



Hello all:

I hope this email finds everyone doing well.  This email is to inform everyone of the upcoming S-130 training being held in September at Durlach Mt. Airy F.C. in Stevens, PA.  If you have anyone that is in need of this course, I have attached the training document along with a registration for the class.  The dates and times are there.  *PLEASE* Make sure that you have them email, fax, or mail the registration forms to me here at the district office.  The dead-line for registration is Friday, September 2nd.  We only have room for 30 guys, so please get them to register early.  We will do the class with less than 30, but no less than 15.  My email and district address is listed on the forms.

  Thank you all for your continued support and hard work!!
