   ****WIRELESS INTERCONNECTED SMOKE DETECTORS****

Great idea for older homes that don't have hardwired detectors. Most homes have had smoke detectors for years and this years NFPA theme is "Check the Date". If your detector is 10 years old its time to replace. Prices start around $30 each.

Address Signs

Properly display your house numbers so emergency personnel can find your residence quickly. Lingohocken Fire Company, Police and Emergency Medical Services strongly encourage all residents to properly post their address.

To assist residents, the Lingohocken Fire Company has begun processing orders for blue reflective address signs that can be displayed near the street. They may be displayed either on a mailbox or a post in the front yard. If your mailbox is not located on your property, it is recommended to have the reflective sign posted on a post, at least 3 feet high in your front yard or at the end of the driveway so it is visible in both directions.

         - Signs are double sided, blue with white numbers on each side.

         - Signs are 6" by 18" with rounded corners and 3" numbers.

         - Highly reflective background and easily seen at night.

         -Rust and weather proof heavy gauge aluminum sign.

******Signs are $15.00 each and it includes mounting hardware******

To order send:   Name, Phone number, Street Address, want the numbers to be Horizontal (left/right) or Vertical (up/down) 

 Check made out to: Lingohocken Fire Company, PO Box 102, Wycombe, PA. 18980

Emergency Preparedness

Emergencies can happen at anytime without any advance notice. Click on the "file" tab and printout the BCEmergencyPreparedness guide. Guide has contact phone numbers for emergency services, hospitals and media outlets. The guide also has sample diagrams of family escape plans, family contact forms and checklists for emergency preparedness kits as well as "To Go Kits".

Emergencies aren't just storms! They can be as simple as a fire in your neighborhood which prevents you from getting home, to a Police standoff which restricts you access to your home.

Fire Company Application

If you have an interest in becoming a volunteer, no matter if it is a firefighter or an associate member click on the file tab. There you will find a listing for "Fire Company Application". Print one out and you can either mail it in to PO Box 102, Wycombe, Pa. 18980 or drop it off on any Tuesday night at the Main firehouse located at 1090 Washington Ave. Wycombe, Pa.

No matter what your background is there is a position for you. Your training is completely paid for by the Fire Company, the only thing we ask is your time. Once you clear basic training, your training can go in multiple directions of your choosing. You can make it a family affair, we have a number of Father and Son teams, as well as families of firefighters and associates.

If you want to give back to your Community, help your neighbors in a time of need or just meet new people, the Fire Company is the place for you.
