We will be holding a work detail on Friday November 27th at 6pm. All members are urged to attend.

It is with deep sadness that we are announcing the passing of our Medical Coordinator, Dorothy Vay.   Dorothy put in a countless number of years pouring her soul into the department and providing help for others.

Friends are welcome from 2 to 4 and 6 to 9 p.m., Thursday Nov 12th at the Gilbert Funeral Home, 6028 Smithfield St., Boston, Elizabeth Township.  Mass of Christian Burial will be celebrated at 10 a.m. Friday at the St. Mark’s Catholic Church, Liberty Borough, with the Rev. Gerald S. Mikonis, officiating. Interment will follow at the Mt. Vernon Cemetery, Elizabeth Township. In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions may be made to St. Mark’s Catholic Church, the Lincoln Fire Company, the Leukemia Foundation & Lymphoma Society, River Walk Corporate Center, No. 441, 333 E. Carson St., Pittsburgh, PA 15219, or the Southwestern Pennsylvania Girl Scouts.

Please keep the Vay family in your thoughts and prayers.

During the early afternoon of November 3rd, 184 and 183 were alerted for a large amount of smoke in the area of Coursin Hollow in Lincoln.  Engine 184 found nothing along Lincoln Blvd and the area of Coursin.  183 investigated Washington Blvd and found a large brush fire.

Crews were on scene many hours extinguishing the fire due to the terrain and wind conditions.

Also on scene were Glassport, Port Vue, West Mifflin 295, Elizabeth Twp EMS, Buena Vista, Central, White Oak, and Gallatin Sunnyside.

After a quiet month of October, November started out with a bang.  Shortly after midnight on November 1st, 2009 we were alerted to assist Port Vue with a residential structure fire on Woodland Avenue in Port Vue.  Tanker 184-1 and Engine 184 responded and assisted with fire extinguishment and overhaul operations.  Also on scene were units from Port Vue, Liberty, Glassport, Dravosburg and White Oak.
