Fire Safety Tip - Mount Joy Borough
Date: Fri, Dec 09, 2016 12:55
Address: Mount Joy

Be cautious when using power strips in your home. Too many times it's easy to overload a power strip which will cause a fire. A typical household 6-outlet power strip has a max load of 15 amps. Did you know that a space heater draws 12.5 amps alone! Plugging that into a power strip will max out the circuit quickly, and is NOT recommended by the manufacturer. Take a few minutes to read the manufacturer's guidelines when utilizing these types of products. Never plug a power strip into an extension cord. Be safe over this holiday season!

Passing of Past Chief George Hedrick - Mount Joy  
Date: Mon, Nov 21, 2016 10:52
Address: Mount Joy

Saturday afternoon we were informed of the passing of Past Fire Chief George Hedrick. There is no way we can adequately share the impact Fire Chief George Hedrick had on the Friendship Fire Company, Fire Department Mount Joy, and our community. George was one of the great leaders in the local fire service, leaving a lasting impact on our organization. Our records indicate he joined the Friendship Fire Company of Mount Joy, one of the predecessor organizations to FDMJ, on December 1, 1964. George was the Fire Chief at time time of the purchase of the first ladder truck to serve Mount Joy, a 1957 Mack Tiller truck.

George served in the US Navy during Vietnam. In 1975, he returned from the Navy and joined the Harrisburg Bureau of Fire. He served the city of Harrisburg for 30 years until 2005, retiring at the rank of Captain. George was less active in the fire service after retirement, but occasionally he stopped in to the station to catch up and share stories. He was a leader and mentor to many within Fire Department Mount Joy and the Harrisburg Bureau of Fire and will truly be missed.

FDMJ Orders New Truck - Mount Joy Borough  
Date: Mon, Jun 27, 2016 11:33
Address: FDMJ

At a special meeting on June 16, 2016 the members of FDMJ voted to replace Truck 75 with a Seagrave 95' Aerialscope.  Members of FDMJ have been meeting to discuss the needs and specifications of the replacement Truck for over two years.  Over 10 manufacturers brought demonstration units or provided specifications for the members and officers to review.  The Truck Committee then reviewed proposals from three manufacturers to determine which vehicle would best meet the department's and community's needs.

Committee members will soon be meeting with Seagrave for the engineering meeting to finalize the specifications so construction can begin.  Delivery of the new Truck is expected to be in July of 2017.

The Officers and Members of FDMJ would like to thank the Communities and Municipalities that we serve for their continuous support to make projects like this possible.
