Fairview Fire and Rescue

(30)

The Fairview Volunteer Fire Department has been proudly serving Fairview Township, Erie County, PA since it was founded in 1933. Since 1933 the fire department has seen a lot of changes, but one thing remains the same, and that is providing fire, rescue, ambulance, and fire police services to the township, and surrounding agencies. The department started in 1933 with the citizens of Fairview purchasing a Chevy pickup truck, that was converted into our first pumper. The department still owns this orginal truck, that is housed at our second station on route 5, unfortunately it needs a lot of work before being a "show piece" for the community. Since its start the department has been housed in 3 seperate locations and has an additional station house that is the home of a second line Engine which is a 1985 Grumman, and the West County Paramedics staff an ambulance and medic unit at station 53. Our main station (Station 52) is located at 7190 W. Ridge Road, next to Doctor Turners office! This station houses our ambulance, brush unit, State Certified Rescue Company, our first due Engine, the second largest water tender in the county, and a converted ambulance that is now our fire police unit.

The members of Fairview Fire & Rescue would like to thank Dollar General and all of the generous members of our community that donated goods. Dollar General has been collecting donations of food, water and so forth to give to us. It was overwhelming how the community responded and gave an abundance of water, sports drinks and snacks for our members. We are very grateful for all.

Picture this :
You’re sound asleep, about to wake up to your 7:00 am alarm. Then your tones go off, for a structure fire. You get yourself out of bed, get dressed, put your contacts in/ get your glasses. You rush to get your keys and put your shoes on. You then, get in your car/truck and drive who knows how long to the fire station, because remember( firefighters aren’t exempt to speed limits, stop lights, etc. in their personal vehicles ) once you arrive on station, you get out and rush inside. Those shoes you put on? Take them off and put your boots, pants, nomex hood and coat on. Grab your helmet & mask from your locker and get in the truck(average gear weighs about 50 lbs) while everyone else is doing the same. Then you roll out, lights and sirens blazing, driving to the scene. You arrive on scene, after battling traffic because people won’t pull over for you, to find smoke and fire showing from A&B side. You and your crew gather an attack plan, and execute your plan, all while hooking up to the nearest fire hydrant for water supply, getting the proper tools, getting ladders set up, dealing with bystanders, assuring everyone is out of the residence, and putting water on the fire. Your officer makes a decision about whether or not to make entry to the residence, keeping everyone’s safety in Mind. You do your absolute best to extinguish the blaze, (which is now cooking about 600-800 degrees in some areas, and way hotter in others). You’re their for hours on end, tired because you haven’t eaten since last night, and won’t be eating anytime soon. Imagine doing your best, working the hardest you could, putting your LIFE on the line, for someone you’ve never even met. You didn’t get to say bye to your kids or spouse this morning, but you might not make it home to see them? Imagine doing all of this, and at the end of the day, doing it for $0. Doing it for the cause, because if someone didn’t, there’d be no fire protection at all. Imagine doing this because you care about the people in your community, and you care about their safety. Can you picture it? If you can, then you have just stepped in to the boots of a VOLUNTEER firefighter. Because at the end of the day, what if volunteers didn’t volunteer? So before you slander your local fire department for “taking too long” or “not putting it out fast enough” remember what I’ve just stated. Remember that they are all people, just like you. Who have families, and jobs. Remember that they do it for free.

Public notice: We will be conducting a storm siren re-test on Sunday May 24th at 1:30 PM. Unfortunately, the test county performed last month did not perform as it should. We have checked and rechecked on our end and is correct. We now need to ensure that the county is capable of activating the siren as needed.

Note that the siren should sound different than it did in the past. Before the siren would activate and wale for 3 minutes straight sounding like a shop vac running in the distance. Regrettably, this was not how it was supposed to sound. We have ensured that it is programmed to activate as the national standard for storm sirens dictates. It should wale for 1 minute, 3 times.

Robyn Brown Obituary - Erie, PA | Erie Times-News

A little over a week ago, Fairview Fire and Rescue received the devastating news that former Rescue Lieutenant Robyn Brown had passed away after a battle with cancer.

Robyn, like many women who have forged their way through the fire service was an extremely knowledgeable and fierce firefighter and paramedic. Regardless of the call, if Robyn was there, you got one of the best to do the job!

When Robyn moved down south to further her career, it left a void at Fairview, which is how many are feeling after her untimely death.

We send our deepest condolences to the family and friends of Robyn. This has been a great loss for so many.

To Robyn: rest easy, we've got it from here. Please say "hi" to everyone for us!

Robyn Marie Brown, age 40, passed peacefully on Friday, April 10, 2020, after a courageous battle with cancer. Robyn was born on January 26, 1980, in Erie, Pennsylvania. She grew up in the neighboring

Area Residents, at 1230 pm on April 15th our new disaster siren will be sounding with the quarterly tests as they progress throughout the county. As you'll notice it will sound much different than the traditional siren did. Let us know if you can hear it!

We would like to express many thanks to Dr. Kincade and Fairview School District for their generous donation during this current state of emergency we are living in. The school district has many volunteers tirelessly making masks to help the hospitals and local emergency responders deal with limiting the potential exposure to this virus and the lack of supplies that we all find ourselves having to deal with. These masks will help our responder maintain the integrity of our N95 masks as well as reduce the potential exposure to this virus. We are very grateful to have this amazing school district as one of our benefactors.

This evening we’d like to congratulate a member of our team. Carl Nerthling came to us fresh out of college through our EMT staffing program. Being a lifelong Fairview resident, Carl knew this was a place for him. He joined and through much hard work and dedication to this community he quickly became a certified Fireman and later a Paramedic. We can’t thank Carl and his family enough for the years of service he gave to us and the community. Today Carl graduated from the 158th Cadet Class as a Pennsylvania State Trooper.

Congratulations Trooper Nerthling!

Former West County Communications dispatcher and area fire scene photographer, Leigh George-Senger got this awesome shot of our new tanker on scene of a working fire in Franklin Township yesterday. It was the first fire the new apparatus has been on, since being put in service. Thanks Leigh for once again providing great photos!

District Residents,

It’s that time of year again, the 2020 Fund Drive is now in progress. Please watch for our letter in the mail. Fairview Fire and Rescue has been proudly serving the Fairview area for the last 87 years! Those years have brought many changes. What hasn’t changed is the fact that we are a volunteer company staffed by very dedicated individuals. Our primary source of income is this annual fund drive. We are in sincere need of the community’s financial support.

A glance at the numbers: 2019 was a record breaking year for Fairview Volunteers. We answered 1,108 emergency calls in our area. Fairview Fire and Rescue presently operates seven emergency vehicles, maintains two fire stations and answers roughly 1,000 emergencies yearly. We do this with thirty active firemen. Which includes three state credentialed Emergency Medical Responders, thirteen Emergency Medical Technicians, and three Paramedics. We also have the distinct privilege of having two Junior Fireman on the rolls presently, they are the future of public safety.

These individuals put in countless hours outside of their home and professional lives to maintain the highest quality of protection within the district as possible with limited funding. With that being said we are also in need of volunteers. Even if you aren’t interested in entering burning buildings, cutting into cars, or repelling down a hillside to rescue someone; telephones need answered, paperwork needs filed, gear needs inventoried, bathrooms need cleaned and bills need paid! We can always use more help whether it be operational or clerical.

Please see our fund drive letter for the many options of donating monetarily. If you’re interested in joining the fire department you can message us for more information or stop by on a Wednesday evening!

Thank you for your continued support!

This past Sunday several members of Fairview Fire and Rescue took advantage of the beautiful weather and ran the new tanker (525) through its paces. Members drilled on tanker shuttles, drafting, pump operations as well as basic hose line and hydrant work. All together the crews moved 20,000 plus gallons of water. It was a productive day!

Fairview Fire Department holds dedication ceremony for two new fire trucks

On Wednesday night we dedicated and blessed two new pieces of equipment we recently took ownership of. We're excited to put the new apparatuses in service and helping provide emergency services to Fairview Township and surrounding municipalities. Please consider donating to our annual fund drive. It's because of generous donations, that we can purchase top of the line equipment for our firefighters to use to help you!

Good morning followers! As I'm sure many of you know, we woke up this morning to some very slippery conditions. If you don't have to travel today, we suggest staying home!

For those of you that can't stay home, be cautious. The road may look wet, when in reality it's ice. Give yourself plenty of time. Make sure there's space between you and any vehicle in front of you. Remember four wheel drive, and all wheel drive doesn't mean four wheel, or all wheel STOP!

Good luck, and stay safe!

Heads up. Tomorrow at 1230pm there will be a test to the storm siren!

Heads up. Tomorrow at 1230pm there will be a test to the storm siren!

Erie County Department of Public Safety will be conducting a Quarterly Municipal Disaster/Storm Siren Test for Erie County on:
Wednesday, January 15th 2020
12:00 City of Corry
12:15 Union City
12:30 West County, Edinboro and McKean
12:45 Mill Village
This test is done four times a year to ensure that in the event of weather related emergency the siren operates properly.
The difference between the fire siren and the weather siren is the following:
Fire Siren: Fire siren goes off in the event the fire company is dispatched for a fire, motor vehicle accident or rescue situation. It cycles up and down for a total of three short bursts.
Storm Siren: Storm siren goes off in the event of severe weather to notify the general public to seek immediate shelter and tune into NOAA weather radio or other media sources for information. The siren is activated and will sound for (3) one minute cycles that will sound a minute apart.
