A big thank you and shout out to the Lititz Fire Company No. 1 for once again coming through to help us out. Earlier today one of our Officers, who was on duty, received a phone call from his wife saying there was light smoke in the basement of their home and the smell of something electrical burning. He responded to his house to check things out, confident that having been a Firefighter in a previous life he would be able to locate the issue and avoid having to wake the Firefighters from their mid-morning slumber. After no immediate signs of anything, and the smell getting stronger and stronger, he admitted defeat and it was time to call in the big guns. After all, leave it to a Cop to try to do a Firefighters job right?!?
Our officer, swallowing his pride, placed the ever dreaded call to the Fire Chief asking for help😉. A short time later a Fire Engine full of local heroes arrived to help bail out the Officer and his family. After a good few minutes of the Officer being verbally accosted, the Firefighters left him to contemplate his career choice while they went to work. Using a combination of modern technology and old school techniques they were able to locate the source. Furnace you say, the Dryer maybe, possible faulty electrical wiring……….none of the above, turns out it was the motor to an old water pump that ended up being the culprit.
So again, it pains us to say this, but we ❤️LOVE❤️ you guys and thanks for all you do each and every day! Thanks for taking an hour out of your Saturday afternoon to help one of us out! We very much appreciate our always dependable and hardworking VOLUNTEER Fire Department!
