Borough of Carnegie to utilize CodeRED Emergency Notification system
Carnegie, PA December 5, 2017 The Borough of Carnegie has contracted with OnSolve to license its CodeRED high-speed notification solution.

Carnegie Volunteer Fire and Rescue Bureau (CVFRB)

Carnegie Volunteer Fire and Rescue Bureau (CVFRB) has served the Borough of Carnegie since the disbandment of its paid fire department in 1972. The CVFRB also serves the Borough of Pennsbury Village. CVFRB currently has five trucks at the station, including one 100’ tower, two pumpers, one reserve pumper, and one squad truck. Aside from providing 24/7 fire and emergency services, members are active in the community during our Independence Day Celebration at Carnegie Park, Memorial Day Parade, Public Safety Day; and, of course, helping Santa come to town. Members also participate in the Firefighter Phil Program, conduct classroom fire safety programs at the Carnegie Elementary, and coordinate periodic fire drills at various high-rise apartment buildings. The CVFRB station is prominently located at 201 West Main Street just across the railroad tracks from the Carnegie Municipal Building.

The CVFRB is a 100% volunteer service. Members participate in training three to four evenings each month. While the Borough provides funding for much of the costs to operate, additional funding comes from CVFRB’s focused fundraising events as well as private donations. The largest fundraiser is the annual CVFRB 5K Run/Walk, which has become an institution in our Borough with more than 500 participants each year and more than 60 local businesses sponsorships. In December, members sell Christmas trees in their parking lot and in April, the CVFRB joins with the the Bridgeville Volunteer Fire Department for “Cash Bash”. Fire bays are rentable by residents and private parties, and fundraising events in the spring, summer and fall. The CVFRB extends its sincere thanks and gratitude for to the entire community for its continued support which is greatly appreciated.

 

REMINDER
When you turn your clock ahead one hour in the spring and back one hour in the fall REMEMBER TO CHANGE THE BATTERIES IN YOUR SMOKE ALARMS.

 


CARBON MONOXIDE DETECTORS
The Borough has an ordinance that requires smoke and carbon monoxide be provided by landlords in all rental houses and apartments. While not required by ordinance, the CVFRB highly recommends that owner occupied buildings also install and maintain these life saving devices in the same manner as required in rentals.


FIRE EXTINGUISHERS
A portable fire extinguisher can save lives and property by putting out a small fire or containing it until the fire department arrives; but portable extinguishers have limitations. Because fire grows and spreads so rapidly, the number one priority for residents is to get out safely. CLICK HERE for fire extinguisher safety tips from the National Fire Protection Association.
