Fire Prevention Week: October 7 - 13, 2018


2018 Campaign
This year’s FPW campaign, “Look. Listen. Learn. Be aware. Fire can happen anywhere,” works to educate people about three basic but essential steps to take to reduce the likelihood of having a fire––and how to escape safely in the event of one:
Look
Look for places fire could start. Take a good look around your home. Identify potential fire hazards and take care of them.
Listen
Listen for the sound of the smoke alarm. You could have only minutes to escape safely once the smoke alarm sounds. Go to your outside meeting place, which should be a safe distance from the home and where everyone should know to meet.
Learn
Learn two ways out of every room and make sure all doors and windows leading outside open easily and are free of clutter.

VictoriaFest

Saturday September 8, 2018 - Throughout most of the afternoon, despite a few rain drops, the residents of Victoria Square development in East Allen Township held a festival in Venice Square. There was plenty of food, live music, activities for those of all ages, and a visit from East Allen Fire Department. Young and old had an opportunity to see the apparatus and equipment up close, and to meet and greet the firefighters and auxiliary. The Fire Department displayed Engine 4611, Tower 4621, Rescue 4641 and QRV 4642.

Thanks to the VictoriaFest Committee and the residents of Victoria Square for this fun event.

Fireworks Law

You may have heard that PA has a new Fireworks Law, and while the law now allows for consumer fireworks, it dose impose certain restrictions.

One of the most significant changes for law enforcement purposes is to permit Pennsylvania consumers to purchase and use “Class C” or “consumer-grade” fireworks that include firecrackers, Roman Candles, bottle rockets, and similar fireworks that contain a maximum of 50 milligrams of explosive material, which were previously not permitted in Pennsylvania.

The main restrictions of the new law are as follows:

  • Must be 18 to purchase/possess and use consumer fireworks

  • Cannot be used on public or private property without the express permission of the owner

  • Cannot discharge fireworks/sparking devices within or throw them out of a motor vehicle or building

  • Cannot discharge fireworks/sparking devices into a motor vehicle or at a person

  • Cannot discharge fireworks/sparking devices while under the influence of drugs or alcohol

  • Cannot discharge fireworks within 150 feet of an occupied structure

A person who violates these prohibitions may be charged with a summary offense punishable by a fine.
