Wanted to let you know how much you are appreciated. When Sandy came through town it was a comfort to know what an excellent group of people we have as first responders. Thank you for giving up the time with your own families to make sure everyone's famililies were safe.

A heart felt thank you to Jeff Hood and Chris DiPiano. I would not be here to day without them.
Mr. Hood and Mr. DiPiano were the first responders to the Limerick Car Wash on 4/17/09, after I suffered cardiac arrest. I deeply appreciate your help that day.

I want to thank you for all the caring that you give the community. I lived in Trappe 15 years ago and I just heard that our old home at 710 S. Trappe Road had burned down. We lived in that home for 34 years and would like any information concerning the fire that you might have available.
Our home was built on a Farm owned by the Ryder Family bought in 1941. Thank you again for all your caring and protection you have given your Community over the years. Pat Ryder

It's a beautiful website, but where are "the ambulances of the past"? I want to see those machines I lovingly washed and waxed for parades, hosed the barf out of and drove to boyertown at mach 3 to rendezvous with a bls unit enroute to pmmc.

The Photos section is great but does John Bolger really have 3 balls?

Hello from a long past member. (1988-1992)I recognize some of the names of the officers. What ever happen to "chuck-5"?

Glad to see you've improved your equipment!

I have some pictures of the old Thibault ladder truck I can scan and send to you if you are interested.

To Chief Long: and the members of the Trappe Fire Department.
I understand that Screwball, was at your community day event back on Sept. 15th. I also understand that he had a great time meeting the people etc: I hear he also wanted to get into the PA. State Police Car and do whatever he was going to do. Thank God, he was not able to get into the Trooper's car, because I am sure Screwball, well lets just say I do not know if the trooper would have found the car for awhile. Screwball, is like sooooooo many other mascots, you never know what he is going to do next.

Speaking of next. I hear talk that he got onto and in deed he did go up the ladder, almost to the top, of the ladder, truck. I bet he was having a ball, he loves to do stuff like
that. Screwball, is one of those mascot's, that does some crazy things and at any time and to anyone, but that is what mascot's are all about
having fun and helping to make people have a great time.

I hope he did not cause too much trouble for you folk's. Maybe next year my wife and I will be able to come down and take part in your community day event. I understand it was really nice. I know Screwball, had a great time and would love to come back again. I did tell Screwball, that if he is ask to come back next year, he has to be real nice and not go up any more ladder truck's etc: He just looked at me and gave me a BIG Smile. So, I took that as an okay boss.???????

I would like to say Thank You, for asking Screwball, to be part of your event and Thank You, for being so understanding and working with Screwball. If your department has something sp. going on sometime, MAYBE I can get the Reading Phillies, to let Screwball, come out and play. Let me know.
I want to say THANK YOU to all you folk's, Fire Department Members/Police/EMTS, ETC (MALE/FEMALE), for the work you do everyday. I use to also be involved with fire department/police/emt work, so I know what you put up with each and every day. In fact, I am currently looking for a police department, part time position.

Currently I work as a school security officer in a school district in Lebanon County, but would like to get back out onto the street part time, and/or relocate to another school district somewhere between Reading and your area.
Need to go for now.

Please, Be Careful out there and watch your back all the times.

Keep Up The Great Work and you have a great web site.

I would like to start off by Thanking Each and Every Fire Fighter/EMT/Police Officer, etc: ( male and female), for the work that each and everyone of you do. I wish I could be any one of the above, however I am sure that I would not be able to find any equipment/uniforms to fit me. And besides with my head being as big as it is and with it being a baseball, I am SURE that I more than likely would never be able to get into the vehicle's.

But aside from all that I really would like to take the time to say Thank You, to the Trappe Fire Department and the men/women that were at the Trappe Community Day, back on Sept. 15th. I know I had one heck of an outstanding day/time and I hope I will be asked to come back again.

And if I am asked to come back again, THIS TIME I WILL MAKE IT TO THE TOP OF THE LADDER. And CHIEF Long, will have to come up HIMSELF and save me. Next time Chief, show your men/women how it is done, oh by the way I hope you have a STRONGGGGGGGGG back, because you will need to show the people how to do a firemens carry. HA HA HA HA HA

I really do want to say thank you to everyone for being very understanding and working with and allowing me to go up the ladder and to be able to spend some time with you folks. Thanks to Fireman Matt who amde sure I didn't get into any trouble up there. It did make for some great pictures. And maybe, one day after I retire from baseball, I can join your fire department.

Hey, I just got a thought as to why the Chief himself did not come up the ladder to save me. If he would have come up the ladder, he would have been so high that the sun coming off his head, would have, well, shell we just say, it was good he did not come up the ladder, because I did not have my SUNGLASSES with me. I am being told that it is time for me to say good bye, for now. So, let me just say to all of you.

PLEASE, BE CAREFUL, WATCH YOUR BACK, and GOD BLESS YOU ALL. I am very sorry that I did not write back to you, because this, but when you are as GOOD LOOKING, AS CHIEF LONG, and MYSELF, YOU ARE ALWAYS VERY BUSY. ha ha ha ha ha ha.

ps If any or all of you happen to be able to make a Reading Phillies game next season, please let me know what day/night you are coming up and I will hopefully get to spend a little time with you folks.

I just wanted to say thank you to Jeff L. and his partner. Last Sat I was at the Upper Providence community day with my 5 year old daughter and some friends. I had an episode of a-fib, and I was very shaken and scared.

Jeff was so gentle,and caring. He eased my mind,and told me I had to go to the hospital. I was hesitant, but he persissted, and took great care of me. Thanks again :)
