What is up with York Springs Fire Company being the only company charging? I heard they were the only company that didn't partake in the parade for the baseball team also. What happened to community service?

I would suggest you attend a fire company meeting and find out why they charge for service. More then likely their costs are going up and last year all three companies agreed to the same amount to charge. Although two changed their minds and did not charge. Fire and EMS companies are experiencing increasing costs and need to find more revenue for their service to be able to continue. Resident and property owners need to support their fire and EMS services more financially through fund raisers and donations. 'my two cents'.

Community service!!! Every time they respond at 3am on a cold winter night or 2 pm on a Holidy weekend, they provide the "community service" that you seem to think is free. Do you have any idea what an Ambulance or Fire Engine cost?? Do you help at over 75 fund raisers a year to provide a service that others don't pay for and take for granted? Have you even considered the time constraints on the volunteers as is, without adding additional "community service"??? Have you set through a 200 hour EMT class on your own time, just to provide the "community service"?? PLEASE.........

All because Roger cried to the school board. He should worry more about providing the community a service by responding on calls then worrying about standby's. I dno't know how many times I see the East Berlin Ambulance come into the Lake.

Your full of crap, for the most part alot of the people running calls are under the age of 21 to begin with, and most of the others don't even drink. You can't base the whole dept. on a few bad eggs. These fire co.'s are doing their best to help the community and people like you wanna tear them down.

York Springs contracts with Memorial Hospital for the career EMT to staff their ambulance. The service isn't free for the Fire Dept anymore either. Read the PIAA rules. It is the school districts responsibility to ensure EMS standby for sporting events.
