How nice to know at least one fire company up there is doing positive things and appreciating their Auxiliary.

Yeah well in the meantime those ladies are raising bucks. Number 1 had to cancel its Nov. spaghetti dinner and word is the liquor license is in escrow. Oh yeah and the prez has resigned. Meanwhile the old ladies are raising money........

Since when is a pickup truck a rescue. With all the rescue tools NC that are on their pickup they watched the Lehighton ALS paramedic and his partner use their tools to extricate the patient from the vehicle. While the Station 1 Asst. Chief had IC, none of the crew on the pick up knew how to use the tools. Good thing for the paramedics knowing what's going on.

So you're telling me the losers .at the end of town can't even schedule things so they don't conflict with each wonder they are the laughing stock of the county
A laughimg stock just like your department. They have more tools and equipmemt at CVS then they do on that self proclaimed "rescue"! And while we are on this topic don't worry about the schedule at the end of town. Worry about scheduling yourself appointment.

You're melting Frosty. That is NOT the reason. Nobody wanted to buy tickets for your burned canned sauce and 2 little frozen meatballs. The Dave Midas dinner at Lansford's fire company was awesome. REAL meatballs, HOMEMADE not burned sauce, and all you could eat.

Stay strong men at the end of town! You work extra hard while New Columbus relies on old women to buy them toys and Hauto does nothing with their 3 members. Congrats to new Columbus on their new toy they call a rescue, maybe some day they will be able to spend $800,000 an actual fire apparatus like station 1. Station 1 must be doing something right if they are able to buy these fire trucks and have over 30 certified and active firemen. Stay strong men of station 1 and thank God we have them.

Nesquehoning tax payer

Nesq tax payers should entirely stop supporting any of the 3 fire companies. #1 has too many thiefs. Hauto is bsically non existant. New Col is basically old ladies and drunks. tax payers can not afford 3 companies. Let them all go bankrupt and then form 1 company rid of the troublemakers.

Pick, cry and whine all you want but we will still show up and save your a$$ when needed. Our boys are dedicated and our ladies will back them up 100%. As far as taxes, your fire protection taxes have not gone up at all. What and where you decide to send donations is up to you.

NC Proud, your boys suck! They don't have the slightest idea what they are doing, have no training or experience, and it looks like a clown car when that "rescue" shows up and a bunch of junior firefighters fall out. What station do you want coming to your house? A pickup truck full of juniors from New Columbus, 3 guys with 1 set of turnout gear from Hauto or a station full of trained and experienced firefighters with actually functional equipment from station 1. The correct answer should be obvious.

Hollywood has 3 fire companies and the rate for fire insurance is lower in both Lansford and Summit Hill, that says a lot about what the insurance companies think about all the little kiddie at the end of town with their shiny equipment and plaques on the walls.

Why do you think they call it Hollywood, everybody is so full of themselves, they can't get along. If it wasn't for Sonny keeping things going over the years, they would have gone down the crapper like the rest of the valley. Now that he is gone I wonder how long until the town falls in to a strip pit?
