An Advertising Supplement of Lancaster Newspapers • Sunday, October 6, 2013

When lives are on the line in a re
emergency, keeping reghters well-
equipped and well-trained is crucial,
but nding the time and money to
meet the risings costs of doing so is no
simple task.
“Fire ghting is still one of the most
dangerous occupations out there,”
William Hutchinson, vice president
of the Strasburg Fire Company said.
“We have to manage our risk, and part
of managing that risk costs money.”
Hutchinson and several other
volunteer reghters were cleaning
up at the station after a “Boot Drive”
fundraiser. They spent Saturday
morning, September 21, on Route
741, holding out reghting boots to
solicit donations from drivers passing
by.
The morning’s panhandling grossed
them about $4000 in donations—a
small fraction of their $207,000
operating budget. With only $55,000
in contributions from the township
and the borough, the Strasburg Fire
Company has to rely on community
donations and fundraisers like the
“boot drive” to make up the rest.
Raising that kind of money takes
a lot of work. Yet, Hutchinson said,
“the people that were out there on
the street today, those are the same
people that will be there to render
assistance if there is a call at 3:00am
this morning.”
It’s a big job, and the job gets
bigger each year. As technology
advances and safety standards become
more rigorous, the cost of equipment
continues to rise, Hutchinson said.
Today turnout gear alone costs at least
$1500, according to Hutchinson, and a
big-ticket item like a ladder truck can
cost well over $1 million.
The improved equipment and
increased safety standards might be
making a difference. According to
a NFPA report, volunteer reghter
deaths in the line of duty were the
lowest ever recorded in 2012, with 30
deaths nationwide for the year.
Those higher costs are worth
it when it makes the job safer
Hutchinson said.
“Our rst and most important
priority is making sure that everybody
comes home,” Hutchinson said.
Hutchinson said he’s not sure how
their department would manage the
job without the support of the large
Amish community in the area. The
Amish help with everything from
providing food during a call to
putting in the hard work needed for
fundraising events like their spring
“mud-sale” to actively volunteering as
reghters, Hutchinson said.
In East Lampeter, deputy chief
Scott Hershey at Lafayette Fire
Company said he wishes they could
be so lucky.
“We don’t have enough volunteers
to handle all of the fundraising,”
Hershey said. “With running 500
calls a year, and having increased
training requirements, we just don’t
have the time.”
Today, basic training requires 166
hours for a new volunteer. To meet
Insurance Services Ofce standards,
Hershey said it takes 240 hours of
training.
Hutchinson said that when he began
reghting in 1978, only 40 hours of
training were required.
The large time commitment is
making it harder to nd volunteers,
especially when people today are
busier—many working two jobs to
stay aoat.
“For two-income families with
children, it’s hard to commit the time
that’s needed,” Hershey said.
With the time and effort needed
to raise funds, a volunteer shortage
has a big impact on their already
ailing revenue stream from the local
community. Lafayette re chief Dave
Keens said that community donations
have decreased by about $50,000 a
year since the recession hit in 2008.
Keens said it’s hard to compete with
all of the other charity organizations
that also ask for money, and many
people assume they are fully funded
by the township. But in fact East
Lampeter and Lancaster Townships
only contribute $106,000 in total to
their $320,000 budget.
East Lampeter also helps with
vehicle and apparatus purchasing.
They contributed 50% of the $900,000
needed for a new ladder truck in
2007—which now would sell for
about $1.2 million, Keens said. But
making up the rest takes a lot of fund
drives and chicken BBQs.
Revenue from a chicken BBQ
doesn’t go very far anymore according
to Keens. “I used to be able to have
a chicken BBQ and pay for fuel for
four months, now I can have a chicken
BBQ and pay for fuel for one month,
if that,” Keens said.
The Lafayette Fire Company has
seen a big increase in call volume,
Hershey said, which not only requires
more man hours, it increases their fuel
and maintenance costs as well.
Responding to emergency calls,
training, maintaining the station and
equipment, and raising the funds
needed to keep the department
running is a major undertaking. Yet
both Hershey and Keens also work
full time jobs.
“Working full time, then going to a
training class Saturday and Sunday,”
Keens said, “our work doesn’t stop.”
“It’s a strain sometimes,” Hershey
said. “We go out during the night and
then get up and go to our jobs the next
morning. Maybe we don’t even go
back to sleep. There have been plenty
of days I’ve gone into work at 5:00am
and I’ve been up since 2:00am.”
For Hershey, who is a third
generation reghter, reghting has
always been part of his life.
“It’s been a way of life since I was
born,” Hershey said, “I enjoy doing it
and I enjoy helping people.”
If nobody volunteers, then residents
and businesses will have to pay a
lot more for less service Hershey
said. “As long as we can provide that
service as volunteers, it’s less burden
on the taxpayers.”

When lives are on the line...
CMY A 1
In the nearly ten years as director
of the Lancaster County Public Safety
Training Center, Craig Elmer has seen
big changes in how reghters do their
job.
“Building construction has changed
signicantly and so has the training on
how we ght res,” said Elmer.
Elmer said the widespread use
of synthetic materials and the light-
weight particle board material called
OSB, or oriented strand board,
commonly used in newer housing and
building construction, means that rst
responders have to be on their toes
more than ever.
“Fireghters can enter a burning
house and before they know it, they
are going through the oor and landing
in the basement,” he said.
Elmer said the intensity of a
building re fueled by synthetic
construction materials means a house
can be engulfed in ames in a matter
of minutes.
“A (newer) house on re can
collapse in 5 to 7 minutes due to
building materials used today,” he said.
Learning how to navigate structure
res, how to ght the res and how
to stay alive in a burning building is
just one part of the safety center’s
purposes.
The safety center opened for use in
April 2004 and is located on 24-acres
of land along Champ Boulevard in
East Hempeld Township.
Getting the $20 million facility and
its many training buildings off the
ground was not an easy sell.
Elmer credits the hard work
of Randy Gockley, emergency
management coordinator for Lancaster
County, for seeing the training center
come to fruition.
“Come hell or high water, Randy
was going to work to get the center
opened,” said Elmer.
Talk of opening a public safety
training center for rst responders in
Lancaster County rst began in the
1970s.
But time passed — decades, in fact
— and funding and the need for such a
facility became a tough sell to county
ofcials and taxpayers.
In 1996, when the county narrowed
a list of suitable sites down to an
abandoned former foundry site along
the north side of Route 283 in East
Hempeld Township, area residents
raised alarm at the proposal.
“There was a lot of resistance from
residents on Harrisburg Pike, on the
other side of Route 283 and the train
tracks,” said Paul Thibault, one of
three county commissioners at the
time who oversaw construction of the
East Hempeld training center.
“There were concerns about noise
from the property — a half mile
away,” he said. “We know now those
concerns never became an issue for
the site.”
But the site itself posed its own
challenges.
“For whatever reason, the owners
didn’t want to sell the property to us,”
said Thibault.
That led the county to take the site
by eminent domain, which Thibault
said seemed to please the land owners.
“It was a friendly eminent domain
process.”
Thibault said everyone on the
county commissioner’s board was
behind the project.
“We all knew that it wasn’t fair
to tell our volunteer rst responders
thank you for your service but make
them nd places to train, often in
facilities in other states,” he said.
Thibault said there was nothing
wrong with the time it took — eight
years in all — to get the training center
open.
Because it was a government
project, Thibault said taxpayers
deserved the time to scrutinize and
question the project.
“It doesn’t hurt that government
takes its time with projects like this.
I’m just sorry that our volunteers (rst
responders) had to wait for the center
to open,” he said.
“Our county commissioners, Terry
Kauffman, Paul Thibault and Ron Ford
threw their full support behind the
center,” said Elmer.
The importance of the training
center became clear to many people in
2001.
The September 11 terrorist attacks
led to one of the darkest days in
history for rst responders.
Of the nearly 3,000 victims that
died due to the attacks, more than 400
were rst responders, including 343
reghters.
“We broke ground on the facility
one month after 9/11,” said Elmer.
He said that while 9/11 didn’t
have a direct impact in getting the
facility constructed, the scale of the
devastation and the loss of life meant
that the roles of the three tiers of rst
responders — reghters, police and
EMS — would no longer be the same
in the weeks, months and years after
the terrorist attacks.
Elmer said the heroism of rst
responders and their roles in the
community changed because of 9/11.
When the center nally opened
in 2004, the county’s aim was to
train rst responders from Lancaster
County.
Elmer recalls a day when local
reghters, police and EMS all
attending their own individual classes
in the main building’s classrooms,
stayed within their own groups during
break periods in the coffee room.
“Today, those same groups
intermingle and socialize,” said Elmer.
That camaraderie is one of the
successes of the training facility,
which now regularly trains rst
responders from ve states and half of
the counties in Pennsylvania.
“In the past ve years, we have
hosted more than 50,000 people,”
said Elmer.
On an annual basis, Elmer said the
safety center trains as many as 20,000
people, including many return visits
from local rst responders.
“This is SERT’s (special emergency
response team) second home,” joked
Elmer. “They train here twice a
month.”
When it comes to re training, the
public safety center’s re training
building is classied as a Class B
facility and Elmer stresses that is very
important factor for those that train at
the facility.
“Safety of our students is of the
utmost importance,” he said, which is
why beginners need the amenities of a
Class B facility.
At the East Hempeld facility, re
training in the specially designed re
building involves the use of natural gas
to produce ames and a water-based
solution to produce theatrical smoke.
“With real smoke, you sneeze and
cough, but not with the water-based
smoke,” Elmer said.
He said if a training class ghting
a simulated re can’t get properly
coordinated or has a problem, one
push of a button on a control panel
by an instructor can instantaneously
shut off the gas re and ventilators
immediately begin clearing the room
of the smoke and heat.
“We never burn anything
combustible materials that can produce
toxic smoke,” said Elmer.
That differs dramatically from
a Class A re training center such
as those in use at Harrisburg Area
Community College in Harrisburg,
Pequea Lane in Lampeter or the Berks
County training center in Reading.
Elmer said those facilities use real
combustibles such as furniture and
wood pallets to simulate re scenarios
close to the real thing.
“Temperatures in those training
rooms can reach over 1,200 degrees,”
he said.
At the East Hempeld training
center, special temperature gauges
located in burn rooms detect when a
simulated re gets too hot, which is
usually 900 degrees at the point of the
re and about 500 degrees nearest an
entry/exit area.
“The system shuts the whole thing
down if it gets too hot,”said Elmer.
Elmer said the re training building
can simulate several environments,
such as a living room or a hotel room.
In those rooms, he points out,
steel sofas and beds closely resemble
something that look more like a large
scale community chicken barbecue
grill.
The re simulator building also
serves multiple purposes.
On some days, as soon as the
theatrical smoke clears and water is
squeegeed from the oors, police and
prison ofcials might be seen using
the building for simulated tactical
situations.
One room in the re training
building resembles a typical jail cell.
“This other room, with a single
door, a enclosed one-way in, one-
way out, represents one of the most
difcult situations police ofcers can
face,” said Elmer.
Elmer says they try to keep the
training experience from becoming too
familiar or static.
Another nearby building he called
the maze room contains a series
of walls that can be moved around
providing trainees with over 150 room
conguration scenarios.
In addition, EMS also train in the
building on properly removing victims
from a scene.
“We never use live people as victims
in the re training,” said Elmer.
“Always mannequins.”
Another taller building at the
training center, one that resembles an
ofce building with a water tower, is
used for repelling and other non-re
uses.
A basement in that building also
offers rst responders the experience
of navigating typical ofce building
basements with overhead pipes and
conduits.
Elsewhere on the site, rst
responders practice on smashed cars
simulating auto accidents.
Elmer pointed to an odd-looking car
in another open area of the training
center.
“That car has been here for ten
years,” he said.
It is a specially designed steel-
framed car that has natural gas
and water pipes tted underneath
to simulate car res. A nearby
500-gallon round tank nearby
simulates a propane tank re.
Pointing at the propane tank
simulator, he said that even the
small 20-gallon propane tanks
that homeowners use for their
grills can result in catastrophic
explosions.
Keeping the training center
properly maintained and
operating doesn’t come
cheap.
Elmer said the training
center costs around
$800,000 a year to
operate.
Not all costs
associated with
running the facility
necessarily go up
in smoke, so to
speak.
To the casual
observer, the
location of
hundreds
of orange
pylons in a
large open
asphalt
area
might
appear
to be
randomly
placed.
Not so,
said Elmer.
“We offer defensive
driving classes for rst
responders,” he said.
He quoted a statistic
where on-duty police
ofcers are more likely to die
in trafc accidents responding
to a scene of a crime than
being shot in the line of duty.
In another location, a
wallboard lined with deadbolt
locks represents another area of
training.
“We have training classes
on how to properly breach door
locks,” said Elmer.
He gures that reghters with
their Halligan bar pry tools or
police with their battering rams
easily go through more than 700
lock sets a year.
“Even at discounted
prices, that adds up,” he
said.
“We offset most of
those costs by generating
revenue from our training programs
and with grants,” said Elmer.
In 2012, Elmer said the training
facility recouped about 45 percent
of its operating budget through its
training programs.
“That was a very pleasant surprise,
much more than we expected,” he said.
Elmer added that training programs
at the East Hempeld center do not
compete with programs at other
training facilities.
“We actually benet one another,”
said Elmer. “We could not exist
without the relationships and
partnerships we have formed with
other training centers, schools and
organizations.”
One of those partnerships has
been 8 years long, with the Lancaster
County Career and Technical Center,
who sends students from its protective
services programs to the training
center.
Elmer said the costs of the training
center are worth every penny and that
volunteer reghters deserve the best
training they can receive and that the
Lancaster County training center does
it best to train everyone from rookies
to experts. The value of relationships
formed during exercises cannot be
measured in dollars.
“A few years ago, members of SERT
teams from Lancaster and York might
not have known each other. Now they
might train together and when there is
an incident and the teams need to work
together, those team members now
know one another,” he said.
Elmer said that same bonding
experience extends to reghters,
other police and EMS.
Thibault echoed the same
sentiments as Elmer.
“We (the county commissioners)
saw that the benets to the community
outweighed any of the costs,” he said.

It is important to have a home re escape plan that prepares your family to
think fast and get out quickly when the smoke alarm sounds. What if your
rst escape route is blocked by smoke or ames? That’s why having two
ways out is such a key part of your plan.
■ Make a map of your home. Mark a door and a window that can be used
to get out of every room.
■ Choose a meeting place outside in front of your home. This is where
everyone can meet once they’ve escaped. Draw a picture of your outside
meeting place on your escape plan.
■ Write the emergency telephone number for the re department on your
escape plan.
■ Sound the smoke alarm and practice your escape plan with everyone
living in your home.
■ Keep your escape plan on the refrigerator. Remember to practice the
plan twice a year or whenever anyone in your home celebrates a birthday.

✔ Annual cleaning will remove build-up
of soot and creosote. Leave this job to a
certied chimney sweep.
✔ Build res with dry, seasoned wood.
Dry wood produces less smoke and
smoldering. Less smoke means less build-
up on chimney walls. Seasoned wood
burns hot and clean.
✔ Build small res that are easier to
control and manage. A re that burns
compactly and well will also produce less
smoke and build-up.
✔ A chimney liner can protect the
chimney structure from excessive heating
and exhaust fumes. It also enables the
chimney to be cleaned more easily.
✔ Install a chimney cap that will prevent
debris, including twigs and leaves that
are highly ammable, from entering
the structure. It can also prevent small
animals from entering the chimney and
causing a re.
✔ Never use combustible materials, such
as paper or liquid accelerants to start a
re. These materials can cause embers to
oat up the chimney and ignite creosote.
Or, they may cause the re to burn out of
control.
✔Leave the damper open so that there
is adequate air ow, which will limit the
amount of creosote that forms.

present in the exhausting ue gas (smoke). The cause of creosote is
the temperature of the ue in the chimney. If the surface temperature
of the ue is cool, the carbon particles in the smoke will condense
and solidify, collecting on the ue. Because wet or “green” wood
burns at a lower temperature or smolders, it can cause the ue to
have a cooler surface temperature, thus leading to more creosote.
Seasoned woods, or those that have been left to dry for several
months or a year, will burn hotter and thus increase the temperature
of the ue. A hotter ue means less creosote buildup.

WHEN TO USE A
FIRE EXTINGUISHER
Small res may be
smothered with an
extinguisher. If the re
has spread or is already
large in size, it’s likely only
a trained reghter can
handle the blaze. Only use
a re extinguisher in these
circumstances:
1. The re is small and
contained.
2. You have already called
the re department.
3. There is little chance of
being consumed by toxic
smoke.
4. You can escape safely if
necessary.
5. The re is not between
you and the escape route.
6. You are physically
able to carry its weight
and exert the necessary
pressure to operate it.
Fire extinguishers should
be routinely inspected and
maintained to ensure they
will be effective.

1. Explain the purpose of 9-1-1. It is a method of
contacting the police, re department or ambulance
when there is an emergency only. An emergency is
when Mom, Dad or someone else in the house is
hurt and can’t get up; there is a re; or the police
are needed, like if there is a burglar or a bad ght.
2. Indicate that the adults in the house will
dial the phone whenever possible if there is an
emergency. The child is learning only in case Mom or
Dad can’t get to the phone.
3. Discuss the buttons on the phone. Show the
child how to push them in the right order.
4. Now may be the time to also teach the child
his or her full name and address. This is something
many kindergartners are urged to know.
5. Roll-play with the child. Go over instances that
are emergencies and non-emergencies so he or she
will understand the differences between both and
when 9-1-1 may be needed.
Again, stress the importance that 9-1-1 should
not be dialed just for fun. Mommy is not sick if
she simply has a headache! With time, children can
grasp the concept of 9-1-1 and be a lifesaver at a
time when an adult cannot reach the phone.

One of the biggest risk factors with space
heaters is their tendency to get hot on the
surface. When a hot space heater comes
in contact with surrounding combustible
materials, such as draperies or bed linens,
the risk for a serious re will only increase.
Adhere to instructions for proper use
and placement, keeping away from walls
and other combustibles. In crowded living
situations or homes with small children
and pets, it is easy for space heaters to be
inadvertently moved or knocked over.
• Consider an electric model that doesn’t
require fuel, such as kerosene.
• Choose a radiator type that doesn’t
feature any external heating coils.
• Look for models with a tip-over
safety shut off. There are others that will
automatically shut off if the unit senses too
much heat from a close-by object.
• Select sturdy models that aren’t prone
to tip over, meaning look for short, stout
heaters, rather than tall, skinny ones.
• The best type of space heaters have
the heating element deep inside of the
machine and only emit hot air.
• If your old-fashioned heater features
heating coils directly behind a mesh screen,
discard of this unsafe appliance promptly.
• A space heater should be the only
major appliance on one circuit to avoid an
electrical overload and re.
• Do not use extension cords, as the cord
tends to overheat quickly.
• Turn off the space heater when a room
is unattended. Heaters must be used under
supervision. Leaving them unmonitored in
a room is a recipe for trouble.
• Use space heaters as a last resort. Heavy
blankets and clothing can chase away chills.

Few things seem as cozy as a mug of cocoa,
a good book and a winter re. But roasting
chestnuts can sometimes lead to charred living
rooms.
Here are some re-prevention tips for a safer,
warmer winter:
• If your pipes are frozen, do not thaw them
with an open ame. Using a blowtorch to thaw
a pipe might seem like a bright idea—at least
until the pipe conducts heat into the wall and
starts a re. Use hot water or a hand-held dryer
to thaw frozen pipes.
• Avoid candles. Electric candles create the
same ambiance but are much safer than open
ames. If you insist on real candles, keep the
wicks trimmed to a quarter of an inch, and
place the candles out of the reach of pets and
children. Never use re near evergreen needles.
Extinguish candles when you leave the room.
• If you decorate with holiday lights, make
sure that they are in safe, working order. Inspect
the lights for frayed wire and cracked sockets.
Do not link more than three strands together, or
you will risk overloading your electrical outlets.
Turn off the lights when you leave your home.
• Get your heating system inspected. Whether
you use a kerosene heater, a wood-burning
stove or a furnace, a home inspector can make
sure that it’s in optimal working condition.
