At this months company meeting the company dedicated a brand new chrome truck bell the Past Chief, Past President, and Life member Joseph Deeney. Joe dedicated 52 years of service to the Glenolden Fire Company, many years to the DCFA as Secretary. In attendance at the service was much of Joe's family and colleagues. Joe passed away in June of 2008, he was still involved with the company as Secretary. The bell was unveiled to the family and guests, and was blessed by his sister. The family rung the bell for the first time and officially put the new bell in service. The ceremony was a great example of the traditions of the Glenolden Fire Company and we know that Joe would have been proud.

Just after 6 am Tower 5 was dispatched to assist Company 04 (Darby) with a commercial building fire on the 800 block of Main St. Tower 5 went responding with a full crew and was assigned to the C-D corner on the building to set up master streams. Crew immediately went to work gaining access to the Delta exposure as well as ventilating the Charlie side of the fire building. All companies operating on the scene went into advanced master streams, while the crew of Tower 5 assisted companies 19, 16, and 04 with a trench cut on the Delta exposure.The Tower was then ordered to begin cutting down the Charlie side of the building with master streams to stop any further collapse. Tower 5's crew operated on scene for 8 hours before being relieved by the cover companies.Photo credit: Delaware Valley Fire Photography.
