TOUR de MILLERSBURG

     

Sunday, August 7, 2016 The Millersburg Fire Company #1 again provided support for the 10th Annual running of the Tour de Millersburg. The race this year was conducted on Saturday, August 6th and Sunday, August 7th. Volunteers assisted with operating the Emergency Operations Center; manning traffic control points; providing medical aid station and medical coverage at multiple points during the various races; and provided ice and water to the race committee for distribution. Planning started months ago and the staff of the Emergency Operations Center, that was operated out of the firehouse, controlled communications equipment and communications between race volunteers and emergency response personnel. EOC staff tracked the assignment of the paid EMS coverage for the event and then volunteer fire company personnel were used to fill openings. The Millersburg Fire Company was assisted on Sunday by the Berrysburg Fire Department with the escort vehicle duties following the pods on the road race course. Utility 20 and Attack 26 followed the various pods to provide for rider safety and medical assistance in the event of an accident. Each vehicle was manned by a volunteer EMT from the fire company. The fire company takes great pride in supporting the various community events conducted throughout the year with our dedicated volunteers.
