Fireplace Safety Tip - Mount Joy Borough
Date: Wed, Dec 21, 2016 08:44
Address: Mount Joy
Details:

As pretty as a perfectly decorated fireplace mantel and hearth may look over the holidays, keep in mind that you are adding combustible materials to a heat source. A rule of thumb is to have 2-3 feet of clearance. Remember that heat rises, so hanging those stocking or garland on the mantel puts them in harm's way. In addition to the radiant heat, fireplaces may throw sparks or hot ashes. So keep that hearth and mantel clean and free from clutter. Wishing you a safe holiday season!


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

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
Details:

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.
