2013 Easter Egg Hunt

Photo with Easter BunnyEggs, eggs, and more eggs.

 

The North Catasauqua Park and Playground is usually deserted in March, unless of course we have unseasonable warm weather, but that all changed on Saturday afternoon March 23rd, 2013, when hundreds of children from the borough and beyond descended on the grounds for the annual Easter Egg Hunt hosted by the North Catasauqua Fire Department.

Assistance to Firefighters Grant Awarded!!!

FEMA

 

The North Catasauqua Fire Department is very excited to announce that earlier today, we were awarded an Assistance to Firefighters Grant from FEMA.  Our award of $94,763 will fund a full replacement of our self-contained breathing apparatus.  Our current SCBA are outdated and obsolete, lacking updated safety features found on modern SCBA.  We also knew all of our air cylinders would expire by the end of 2015.

We send our condolences to the family, friends, and fellow firefighters of the Philadelphia Fire Department.  Tonight, a PFD Captain from Ladder 27 lost his life in a roof collapse during a building fire.  Rest in peace Captain.

Daisy Scouts visit NCFD

The North Catasauqua Fire Department was invaded by a lot of little people Feb. 6 and each one of them wanted to get a glimpse of the big fire truck.

 

But before that, the members of Daisy Troop 6011 from St. Paul's Evangelical Lutheran Church in Catasauqua had to do a bit of listening, as volunteer firefighter Harry Huhn spoke to them about about fire safety.  Huhn talked about why people call 911, why a smoke detector beeps and how to exit the house when there is a fire and never re-enter the house once you leave.
