With the Thanksgiving leftovers put away, many are beginning to deck the halls! Keep these safety tips in mind as you string the lights. Heating is also the second leading cause of home fires. When you heat your home, heat safely. Remember to install carbon monoxide alarms in your home, and test them with your smoke alarms.
After confirming with Mrs. Claus and his head elf, Santa Claus has once again informed the Blandon Fire Company he will be making a trip to Blandon!

Just prior to 3:00am on 11/28/2022, Station 12 was dispatched to Ontelaunee Township in the area of Route 222NB just before the Allentown Pike exit ramp for a HazMat. (Tractor trailer overturned, leaking fluids.) Ladder 12 responded along with Rescue 66 & Rescue 45. Ladder & Chief 12 arrived to find one overturned tractor trailer hauling eggs. Crews from 12, 66, & 45 operated on scene for approximately 1 hour mitigating fluids, while the roadway remained closed for approximately 6 hours for clean up/removal operations of the tractor trailer. #blandonfire
