Tragic Accident in the First Due Claims the Life of a Friend

The Westminster Fire Co extends its sympathy to the family of Jeannie Vogel of JeannieBird Baking Co who died in today’s traffic accident.

Friday evening, February 19, 2016

By the men and woman of the Westminster Volunteer Fire Department

The Westminster Fire Engine and Hose Company No.1 extends its sympathy to the family and loved ones of Jeannie Vogel of the JeannieBird Baking Co., our neighbor on Main St in Westminster, who died in today’s traffic accident.

Ms. Vogel was a lovely person who steadfastly supported the Westminster community and the Westminster Fire Department. We lift Jeannie and her family, co-workers, and friends into our hearts and pray for comfort and healing at this terrible time. She will be greatly missed.

We also say a prayer for the firefighters, EMS personnel, state highway workers, and police officers who left their homes in the middle of night to respond to this terrible accident. They fought the fire, freezing temperatures, ice, and multiple dangers of the accident this morning at Rt. 27 and Kate Wagner Road.

God of earth and air, water and fire, height and depth, we pray for those who work in danger, Who rush in to bring hope and help and comfort when others flee to safety, Whose mission is to seek and save, serve and protect, and whose presence embodies the protection of the Good Shepherd.

Give them caution and concern for one another, so that in safety they may do what must be done, under your watchful eye. Support them in their courage and dedication that they may continue to save lives, ease pain, and mend the torn fabric of lives and social order. Amen.

Steel Beam From 9-11 Arrives in Carroll County

Tower 3 stood outside the Carroll County Training Center flying the American Flag waiting the arrival of a steel beam from New York. The beam is from the 9-11 attacks on the World Trade Center. The beam will be put on display at the Carroll County Training Center as a memorial for those who made the ultimate sacrifice on that day.

Alpha Fire Company Needs Your Help!!

Earlier this morning at approximately 1105 hours, Alpha Fire Company was dispatched for a residential structure fire at 34 North Queen Street in Littlestown Borough. Initial crews arrived on-scene and encountered heavy smoke and fire conditions at this address. After the initial first few minutes we would soon realize the residence was that of one of our own members.

Mr. Raymond Boyd is an active volunteer firefighter at Alpha. He lived with his mother at the residence. Raymond, his mother, and the family dog were fortunate enough to escape the blaze. However, numerous cats perished in the fire. The structure suffered significant damage to the interior of the house. The residents lost all of the contents.

Alpha Fire Company is spearheading a drive to assist our fellow firefighter and his family in their time of need. A GoFundMe page has been established to provide financial support. It can be found here: http://www.gofundme.com/sp24qqtc. In lieu of an online donation, anyone can drop off cash or gift cards of any kind (Walmart, Target, Visa, etc.) at the fire station. We kindly ask you put your monetary or gift card donation in an envelope marked “Attention Raymond Boyd Drive”. You can place your envelope in the mailbox on the front of the station at 40 East King Street Littlestown, PA. We are also collecting items for the family. Clothing is one of the biggest needs at this time. Julie wears a medium shirt and size 7 pants. Raymond wears a medium shirt, medium/large shorts, and 28-30 pants. We would like to collect clothing for different seasons as we wind down summer time and head into fall. Julie has also recently been preparing for the arrival of her granddaughter. Numerous baby items were lost in the fire including a crib, stroller, diapers, and numerous girl’s infant clothing. We’d like to help replace these items too. Alpha will also be collecting house furnishings since their living room and kitchen sustained the most damage. If dropping off these items please call ahead to ensure someone is there to receive your items.

It should also be noted that this young man once again put aside his personal ordeal to assist others in need. Not less than 4 hours after losing his home to a fire, Raymond was responding on a fire engine to assist another Littlestown resident with their house fire. It is times like these that the fire department rallies around one of our own to show them they are not alone in their ordeal. We are kindly asking the community and other emergency service providers and organizations to do the same as we come together for Raymond and his family.

Should you have any questions or need further information please contact Alpha Fire Company at 717-359-4212 or Fire Company President Steve Laughman at 717-577-4795 or locky20@comcast.net.

When Westminster Fire Company runs into Pleasant Valley, they work often side by side with our brothers and sisters from Alpha. If you would like to drop a donation off to Westminster Fire Company please feel free! Address is 28 John Street Westminster MD, 21157 attention Lt 3-5 (Price) 410-848-1800.
