From Etown Fire Department

The Elizabethtown Fire Department is now offering the reflective address signs commonly seen around the area. These signs dramatically increase police, fire, and EMS in locating your address in times of emergency. These signs are available for all communities in the Elizabethtown, Mount Joy and surrounding areas.

The signs are available in blue or green and can be mounted vertically or horizontally. Signs are $20.00 each.

American Red Cross Needs You!

As a volunteer organization, the American Red Cross relies on individuals who give freely of their time to make it possible for them to respond to nearly 70,000 disasters every year, most of which are home and apartment fires.

Currently they have an urgent need for Disaster Action Team (DAT) members in our community. DAT volunteers are the heart of the American Red Cross disaster relief efforts, responding immediately when called into action. Specially trained to assess the scope of the damage and meet with those affected to discover their immediate disaster-related needs, DAT volunteers work hard to ensure those needs are met.

Eligible DAT candidates should

-  Possess the willingness and availability to respond to emergencies anytime during the self-selected on-call shift.
-  Be sensitive to people's needs during difficult situations.
-  Have the ability to work objectively and compassionately with diverse individuals.
-  Show respect and concern for the people served.
-  Maintain confidentiality.
-  Be able to work well in a "team" environment.
