A few of the Downingtown Fire Dept. volunteers had the opportunity to meet Traffic Reporter and local personality Bob Kelly from Fox 29 morning Good Day Philadelphia program. Every Monday, Bob and his camera-man George travel throughout the area doing a “Town Takeover” from 4:00 until 10:00 AM.
Rescue 45 and Engine 46-2 attended the event to represent our department. The volunteers arrived at the Downingtown Diner at 5:30 AM and met Bob along with many of the other local merchants and neighbors from our community. At 6:00 AM we had a brief interview, presented Bob with an Alert Coffee Mug, ate breakfast, then at 7:00 AM we departed and saluted Bob and George with siren and horn send-off!
We would like to thank the Downingtown-Thorndale Regional Chamber of Commerce for inviting us to the Town Takeover.
