MAN NARROWLY AVOIDS SERIOUS INJURY ON PA TURNPIKE

Saturday, September 6, 2014   Albrightsville and Lake Harmony Fire Companies along with White Haven Ambulance were dispatched to a reported rock through the windshield of a passenger car Saturday night during a severe thunderstorm. while en route, Carbon County advised units of a second crash just past the initial incident at 92.5 South. The second crash was North Bound, which was handled by Albrightsville. The South Bound crash was handled by Rescue 17, who assisted with patient packaging and traffic control. The crashes were possibly the result  of an RV travelling North, which lost its front tire and suspension parts. The axle piece flew across the Jersey barrier, striking the passenger car in the hood and then bouncing through the windshield, injuring the driver. The driver was transported to the hospital by White Haven Ambulance. Units were on scene for just under an hour.

   


 

LAKE HARMONY ENGINEER RICH KENNEDY WINS AWARD

Thursday, August 21, 2014  Lake Harmony Engineer Richard Kennedy has been named the 2014 Kidder Township Emergency Services Person of the Year.

The presentation was made Thursday at the Kidder Township board of supervisors' meeting by Ralph Lennon, chairman of the township fire commission.

A volunteer firefighter with the Lake Harmony Fire Company, Kennedy started out volunteering his services by helping to restore a fire truck. Along the way he brought in more volunteers to assist with the restoration, eventually completing the job at a cost of $7,000, a savings of $43,000 to the taxpayers.

Kennedy later joined the fire company as a driver and continues to help maintain the fire apparatus at Lake Harmony.

The Kidder Township Fire Commission annually recognizes personnel from the three township volunteer fire departments as well as the ambulance service for duty that exemplifies service to the community.

"Every year each of the services nominates an individual to receive this award," Lennon said Thursday. "Each company submits a two-page letter on behalf of these individuals."

Lennon said the letters are then reviewed anonymously by a committee, which makes the decision on who should be chosen. The nominees are invited to attend the August supervisors' meeting where the Emergency Services Person of the Year is announced.

This year only the three fire companies nominated individuals for the award.

"The three men nominated all made outstanding contributions to not only their companies, but to the township as a whole," Lennon said.

In addition to Kennedy, the other nominees were Charles "CJ" McFeely from Albrightsville Volunteer Fire Company, and Rob Hill from Kidder Volunteer Fire Company.
