Welcome to Ludwigs Corner Fire Company

Snowed in Fire Hydrants
It is that time of year as the snow storms keep rolling in fire hydrants become more and more snowed in. The LCFC would like to ask home owners to take the time when they are shovling their driveways to consider shoveling out the hydrants near their home. For a fire company being able to access water during a fire is curcial as water is what puts the fire out. Please take the time to clear a 3 foot section of snow from around your local hydrants. Seconds save lives and property.

 
   
   
Driver Training
Monday, February 23, 2015
-
This week Station 73 had its normal Monday night training. However this weeks training was a little different. The stations drivers went to the counties training campus and used the new Driving Simulator. This simulator puts the drivers into different situations that could occur while they are driving and helps them to practice and hone in more on their skills. Their time at the county started with a small classroom session and then they got to go behind the wheel and put their good foot forward. Not all of our members can drive the trucks so the remaining crew practiced on the duties they have to preform while en-route to a fire call, reading maps. While GPS is a great thing, all of our firefighters both young and old have to have an intimate knowledge of the roads in our territory. The map books were pulled out and addresses were given. The crew members had to identify where the listed roads were and how to get there. Monday nights trainings were not only fun but informative and a great way to spend a cold night.

On Saturday morning the LCFC and its crew responded to a chimney fire. The crew split into two teams; one team headed to the roof and another to inside the house. Both teams worked together to clear the chimney and ensure that no fire has breached the walls of the house.

 
   
   
We Need Your Support
Tom Gramling
   Tom Gramling
Fire Companies are not just a group of people who come together to do a job. Fire Companies are a family of men and women who stand together during times of need. The LCFC is proud to have the Gramlings as part of our family. Linda and Joel have given their time to this fire company during many calls, events and over many years. As part of our family we are asking our supporters to support them. Tragically Joel and Lindaís son Tom Gramling lost his life in a car fire. Tom leaves behind a loving wife and two children who are soon to be off to college. The Gramlings are holding a Beef Ní Beer fundraiser at our fire company in Griffith Hall on March 28th from 7:00pm to 11:00pm. The tickets are $25 in advance and $30 at the door. All of the money will be going to a fund for Tomís childrenís education. If you would like tickets or would like to make a donation please send a check or cash to Karin Pierce at 6 Joseph Court, Downingtown, PA 19335. Checks are to be made payable to Karin Pierce. Please also note whether you would like your tickets to be mailed to you or to be waiting for you at the door. There will be music, dancing, a silent auction, a 50/50 drawing, gift baskets, wine, beer and food! This event is to celebrate the life of Tom Gramling and to help support his childrenís future. Please come out and support one of your local fire families!

Loss of a Founding Father
Friday, January 9, 2015 
-
It is with heavy hearts that the Ludwigs Corner Fire Company has to say goodbye to one of our founding fathers. Bob Heitzman was and will ever be a large influence on the LCFC. In the early 70ís, when the fire company was founded, Bob and his wife Joan allowed the fire company to have a home. They allowed the trucks and gear to live in their shop, rent free. Bob was a mechanic by trade which was a great help to a fire company just starting out. He had many stories about fixing the trucks because the company didnít have the option of buying new. In his later years of life Bob enjoyed reminiscing about the good old days and telling stories from the past to the younger members of our station. His words of encouragement and confidence in us, has given members a sense of pride. He has seen the company from where it started to where it is today and all the time in between, contributing in many ways the whole way. Not having his always infections smiling face at events will be greatly missed. Rest in peace Bob we have got it from here.
