Friday, October 20, 2017  While at Fire Prevention at the Lenkerville Elementary School, we had a very special presentation. Second grader, Bryson Null organized a stuffed animal drive with MI Charitable Foundation to help other kids who have been involved in various tragic situations. Bryson got the idea after having his tonsils removed and wanted to do something nice for other kids in similar situations. We will be using these stuffed animals to give to children who were in accidents and fires and other terrible situations to help make them feel a little better in a bad time. Thanks Bryson and way to go!!




Friday, October 20, 2017  The Millersburg Fire Company made it's annual trip to the Lenkerville Elementary School to teach the students Fire Prevention. Kindergarten through 3rd grade had members visit in the classroom where the fire prevention message was given along with a gear demonstration. 4th and 5th graders came outside to visit the Safety Trailer where they were able to experience a smoke simulation where they had to safely exit through the window assisted by fire company members. Engine 20 was also on hand and students had the opportunity to see the equipment that we carry.

Tuesday, October 10, 2017  In a fire situation, once you get outside, stay outside! Call 911 or the local emergency number immediately from your cell phone or a neighbor’s phone. http://ow.ly/Bue430bbTuH

Sunday, August 27, 2017  The Millersburg Fire Company recently donated used fire hose to Potter County for distribution to the Germania and Kettle Creek Fire Company's. Millersburg applied for and received a Dauphin County Gaming Grant and a Office of the State Fire Commissioner Grant last year and replaced all 2 1/2", 3" and 5" fire hose and placed adapters on all the Millersburg Water Authority fire hydrants in the borough and Upper Paxton Township. This was done to convert the fire company to National Standard Thread. The fire hose that was removed from service was still serviceable and the fire company decided to work with the PEMA Central Area Office and the Office of the State Fire Commissioner to determine if there was any departments in need of the removed hose and adapters. Potter County indicated that they would take it for distribution. On August 27th Glenn Dunn from Potter County EMA brought a truck and trailer to Millersburg and members of Millersburg loaded approximately 3000 feet of hose and adapters.




Wednesday, August 23, 2017 1928 There was a line of storms that proceeded thru the area this evening which resulted in multiple calls for trees down blocking roadways and utility lines pulled down. Units were dispatched to cover a total of thirteen calls, mutual aid was requested from Reliance Hose Company in Elizabethville, Station 21 to assist with one call due to Company 20 resources being stretched thin. All units and Dauphin County 911 Dispatchers did a great job handling the situation.
