is in training for being a fireman. David also volunteers for their ambulance. All are trained for fireman and David is trained for the ambulance. Some of the Old Order Mennonite and Amish speak in Pennsylvania Dutch when they are in the ambulance so David does not only his medical but can translate or converse with the patient. As they do not drive, other Englisher firemen and ambulance medics drive.
The above pictures are of the front and side of the fire department. This was on Amish Stories a while back, but I have a few more pictures since then.
This building is on one side of the firehouse. I really liked this building.
Next to the Firehouse is a picnic area. Jean says it is used for picnics, dinners, auctions, craft sales, etc. Most of the money from these support the Fire Department.
THANK YOU ALL THE FIREMEN AND FIREWOMEN THAT CAME TO THE FIRE OUR TOWN HAD, GORHAM INCLUDED. YOU RISKED YOUR LIVES TO SAVE OTHERS AND OUR TOWN. WE LOST A BLOCK BUT THE REST STILL STANDS,THANKS TO YOU.
GOD BLESS YOU !!!!
When duty call's me, oh Lord,
Wherever Flames may rage,
Give me the strength to save some life
Whatever Be its age. Help me embrace a little child
Before it is too late
Or save an older person from
The horror of that fate Enable me to be alert,
and oh Lord, guide my every move,
for life is so precious,
please don't let us loose. I want to fill my calling and
To give the best in me
To guard my every neighbor
And protect their property And if according to thy will,
That I must give my life,
Then with thy protecting hand my Lord,
I pray thee, protect my children and my wife. Amen
