On Saturday April 20th, 2013 the Upper Makefield Fire Company held their annual recognition and awards banquet. This year the event was held at the Cock and Bull in Peddlers Village, Lahaska. The evening started with acknowledgment of the current officers and invited guests, followed by a very nice buffet dinner and dessert. The years of service awards were given out first with Tess Manley awarded for 5 years, Betsy Barry, Beth Barry & Ted Bilger were awarded for 10 years, Dawn Berger & Ed “Chip” Coff for 20 years and Jeff Ogborn for 45 years. Next was A Special Recognition Award that was given to Mary & John Ryan & Betsy & Jim Barry for their work on the Italian Night & Auction. The Top 10 responders for 2012 were recognized next and they were Justin Brewer, Ted Bilger, Mike Alessi, Randy Berger, Chris Muth, Ed “Chip Coff”, Robert Kay Sr, Paul Dollings, Bart Krauss, George Pickering & Bill King. President Bart Krauss gave the “Presidents Award” to Past President Chris Muth for his 9 years of service in that position. Lieutenant Ed Fenton gave the “Junior Firefighter of the Year” award to Jimmy Dollings for his accomplishments as a Junior Firefighter in 2012. Chief Tim Brewer gave a very nice speech about the “Firefighter of the Year” for 2012. Tim spoke about this persons never give up attitude and how he gives 110% all the time. The UMFC Firefighter of the Year is Matt DePledge. Traditionally the fire company will also give out some gag gifts for misfortunate events or comical mistakes that occur during the year. This year Amy Brewer & Kate Kay (Banquet Committee) decided to make a theme for the banquet and that theme was the “Oscars”, so all of the gag awards were based on “Academy Awards” and the winners all received small Oscars. Some of the awards are pictured below include, Jim Barry for Best Stuntman, Randy Berger for Best Director, Tim Brewer for Best Producer, George Pickering for Oldest Person in a short film (it was his birthday), Ty Hub for Best Actor in a Documentary, Tony Srour for not completing the video for the Banquet, Robert Kay Sr for Best Supporting Actor in a Documentary, and last entry Ed Fenton for being late all the time. The evening ended with dancing and good times with friends. A special Thanks to the Crew from Penndel Engine 8 for covering Station 71 during our Banquet.
UMFC was dispatched to a reported dwelling fire in the 300 block of Stonybrook Road at 0639hrs on Sunday 4/7/2013. Upon arrival of Upper Makefield Police, they reported a working fire. With the arrival of Deputy 71, he confirmed heavy fire showing from the 2nd and 3rd floor of the rear of the 3 story 200 year old farm house. Engine 81 & Engine 71’s crews made an aggressive exterior and interior attack to knock the fire down. UMFC was assisted by the Newtown Fire Association, Yardley Makefield Fire Company, Titusville Fire Company and New Hope-Eagle Fire Company. Due to the large amount of fire, additional water tankers were called for from the Lingohocken Fire Company, Northampton Fire Company, New Hope Eagle Fire Company, Titusville Fire Company, Midway Fire Company and Warwick Fire Company. A special call was put out for an air cascade unit from Lingohocken Fire Company to refill the air packs and for a canteen unit from Trevose Fire Company for rehab. Newtown Ambulance also was on scene for any medical emergencies, and transported one occupant to the hospital. Companies were in-service for approximately 4.5 hours with extinguishment and overhaul. The scene is under investigation by the Upper Makefield Township Fire Marshal. UMFC was covered during the incident by Yardley Makefield Fire Company Rescue 80 and Stockton Fire Company Tanker 23.
