Historic Bell Removed for Restoration

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Alpha Fire Company’s original (and still operational) bell from 1887 was removed from the roof of the fire station today with assistance from Brian’s Crane Service. Alpha was able to find the original bell manufacturer which is located just outside of Baltimore, Md. The bell will travel to McShane Bell Foundry to undergo a full restoration process to be completed in time to be placed in the bell tower of the new fire station. Once in place, it will be a prominent feature of the new facility for all to see as they pass by on East King Street. Photos submitted

Wrong Side Of Camera

A big special thank you to a very sweet young lady Gabby Mauston, the daughter of long time Gettysburg Fire Department firefighter/member Gary (Weasel) Mauston for capturing a photo of me in action at Sunday’s structural burn class.  Exercising safety first of course with helmet and shorts ?

Sgt Wilson

Sergeant Kevin Wilson is recognized by the Mayor of Gettysburg after 32 years of service. Sgt Wilson has decided to retire. A 32 year career in Police work these days is quite an achievement. Sgt Wilson has been involved with nearly every aspect of the Gettysburg Police Departments  operations over the years. He is well known throughout the area. Sgt Wilson was extremely courteous to the 911 Photography crew at incidents. Great Job Sgt Wilson and Happy Retirement !
