The Alert Fire Co. No. 1 volunteers were very active, once again in Kerr Park and at the firehouse during the Annual Downingtown Good Neighbor Day ~ Fourth of July Celebration, today.
Starting at 6:00 AM several of the members got together and had breakfast at the diner then at 7:00 AM, volunteers split into crews that manned a water station in front of our firehouse for the annual Run-For-Life and an EMT Team in Brush 45 provided first-aid at Manor and Downing Ave’s. while a crew for Tower 45 was available for emergencies. In addition, our volunteers provided emergency and fire crews throughout the day and night, during all of the events.
The day ended with the annual fireworks show in Kerr Park. The DFD would like to thank the Downingtown Area School District, Kimberton and East Brandywine Fire Co’s. and Chester County Dept. of Emergency Services for loaning us the ATV’s again this year. They proved to be a valuable asset. We hope that you enjoyed and had a happy and safe Fourth of July!
