Today, while on Standby nearby at Station 61 (Upper Leacock) while their members were attending a training event, some fellow firefighting friends from Station 66 (Lancaster Township) stopped by for a visit. A few members of Station 66 started their volunteer firefighting career or grew up on “The East End” of Lancaster City, in the vicinity of Witmer and our neighboring Fire Companies. Due to the fact that the metropolitan City of Lancaster, who is protected by a paid department, separates the area’s nicknamed the “East End” and “West End” of town because of their respective locations, members of these 2 areas seldom run mutual aid calls or assists together and rarely get a chance to interact with one another inside the fire service. Today was different, and we are glad we got a chance to catch up with some good friends who we do not get to see every day anymore. If anyone else is ever in the area from another part of the town or county, please do not hesitate to stop by if someone is around. This type of Camaraderie is just one great benefit’s the members of Witmer, and many other Fire Departments, enjoy and share as being a part of the Fire Service and Brother/Sisterhood.
