Busy Sunday Evening for Western Salisbury
It was a busy Sunday afternoon in Salisbury Township! Western Salisbury began the day with the utilization of their new QRS certification to respond to a cardiac arrest at the Devon House. Several hours later Western Salisbury responded to Lehigh Valley Hospital for a Rubbish Fire with exposure. As the weather changed that evening, Western Salisbury was called around 10:26 PM for a house struck by lightning. Upon arrival, no fire was showing. Upon further investigation a fire was found in the chimney with minor extension . Chief Wells called for a second alarm which included Stations 20, 3, 30,7, 32, and 62. Through great teamwork, Western Salisbury was able to control the fire within minutes which allowed for minimal property damage. Photocredit: Nester Video Productions.

WESTERN SALISBURY GAINS QRS LICENSURE
Last week, the Western Salisbury Volunteer Fire Company completed a licensure program for the Pennsylvania Department of Health, Emergency Medical Services Office, Quick Response Service. By gaining a Quick Response Service (QRS) licensure, the Western Salisbury Volunteer Fire Company is recognized as being properly prepared to respond to an emergency incident and provide emergency medical services until the arrival of an ambulance. We would like to thank Medical Officer Firefighter/EMT Jonathan Al-Khal and Firefighter/Paramedic William Sames for spearheading this effort!
WSFD AT THE RACE FOR ADAM

hosted their annual Race for Adam. Adam suffers from Niemann-Pick C Disease, which is a currently incurable sickness.
