Fund Drive Letters

Attention Residents:

It has come to our attention that an error occurred with the mailing of our Fund Drive letter. We were informed by a neighboring fire department that some residents of West Donegal and Mount Joy Townships with Mount Joy addresses (17552 zip code) who do not receive primary fire protection coverage from Fire Department Mount Joy were mailed fund drive letters on behalf of Fire Department Mount Joy by mistake. We are working to correct this issue so it does not occur again in the future.

If you have received a letter from Fire Department Mount Joy and have questions about the letter, please feel free to contact us at (717) 653-1600. Any correspondence sent by or on behalf of Fire Department Mount Joy will always have our name and logo clearly printed on it with a means to contact us. If you have received a letter but receive fire protection coverage from another fire department, please help us resolve the issue by letting us know. We thank you for your patience while this process takes place and thank you for your continued support.

Press Release
Municipality: Mount Joy
Date: Wed, Feb 07, 2018 18:04
Address: Mount Joy
Details:

From the Office of the Fire Chief,

On Tuesday, February 6th, 2018 at approximately 3:15 PM, Fire Department Mount Joy and neighboring agencies were dispatched to a reported residential structure fire in the 600 block of Union School Road, East Donegal Township. The address was later confirmed to be in Mount Joy Borough. Units arrived to find a well-advanced fire consuming the attached garage of the home and extending into the structure.

During the course of interior firefighting operations, it was determined that portions of the structure were in danger of collapse and all personnel were evacuated from the building. In the process of exiting the structure, one firefighter from Fire Department Mount Joy sustained burn injuries and was transported to Lancaster General Hospital. The firefighter was then transferred to Chester-Crozier burn center in Chester, Pennsylvania for continuing treatment.

All occupants of the home were able to exit safely and were uninjured by the fire. The Pennsylvania State Police Fire Marshall's office is investigating the cause of the incident and the structure is estimated to be a complete loss. Our thoughts are with the family during this challenging time.

We thank the various neighboring emergency services agencies who assisted at the scene: Maytown/East Donegal Fire Department, Marietta Fire Company, Rheems Fire Department, Elizabethtown Fire Department, Mastersonville Fire Company, Columbia Borough Fire Department, Hempfield Fire Department, Mountville Fire Company, Wrightsville Fire Company, Northwest EMS, Susquehanna Valley EMS, Mount Joy Borough Police, and Susquehanna Regional Police. West Hempfield Fire Rescue and East Petersburg Fire Company transferred units to cover the Mount Joy area for the duration of the fire and were a tremendous help returning all equipment to service. In addition, we are very grateful for the offering of further assistance to our organization and the family of our injured firefighter by various organizations and members of the community. We continue to thank our community for their tremendous support.

Matt Gohn
Fire Chief
Fire Department Mount Joy
