We were proud to welcome several hundred residents and visitors to Company 1. Attendees visited with firefighters, toured the firehouse, fire museum, and apparatus. Also on hand were representatives from many other agencies, including:
- Adams Regional Emergency Medical Services
- Adams County Emergency Management Association
- Adams County 911 center
- American Red Cross
- Gettysburg Fire Department Fire Prevention Program
Families and children enjoyed handling the hose line and the tricycle obstacle course, and everyone had their fill of free hot dogs and hot chocolate. We would especially like to thank the staff and crew of the LifeLion Medical Helicopter. Their landing, visit, and takeoff were one of the highlights of the day.
We would also like to thank the citizens of Gettysburg and Adams County - you are the reason we volunteer to serve. If you would like more information on becoming a member of Gettysburg Fire Department, we would like to hear from you!
