On Tuesday, December 10th, Flourtown Fire Company was presented a donation from Giant Supermarkets as part of their “Grand Opening” celebrations for their newly constructed store in the Flourtown Shopping Center.

Recently, Flourtown Fire Company accepted a $1,000 donation from Wells Fargo Bank as part of its Community Partner program.

Occasionally Flourtown Fire Company’s volunteers are asked to “bring out a fire truck” to community events and we’re more than happy to when our training schedule and schedules of our volunteers cooperate. The weekend of September 8 and 9, 2012 was no different with the fire company asked to attend three community events with a fire truck available for children and “children at heart” to explore.
On Saturday we were asked to stop by several block parties, including one on College Avenue, and a charity walk at Fort Washington State Park along W. Mill Road. On Sunday, we again took part in Community Day at Cisco Park, where it seems the entire township and its many charitable organizations and businesses come together for fun, food and fellowship.

The Boy Scouts hold an annual week-long camp at Fort Washington State Park. As a way to celebrate the end of a long, hot week, the Boy Scouts hold a water battle and invite Flourtown Fire Company to add some “extra” water to the festivities. Using the deck gun on Engine 6, and supplemented by Squad 6, we make it rain for over 100 boy scouts and friends.
