The fire company received good news this week. The U.S. Department of Justice made final determination that Chief Engineer Charles P. Hornberger, will be listed as a Public Safety Officer Line of Duty Death and his family will be entitled to the benefits as such. Charlie responded to a fire call on June 30, 2010 and was not feeling well. He returned home and was preparing for work at the 911 center, when he collapsed and was transported to the hospital. As a result, of the incident and medical emergency, Charlie passed in Hospice on July 7, 2010.
Last night, after the board meeting, the entire Board of Directors, paraded over on the apparatus, to Charlie's daughter's (Mary Anne (Tom)) house, and presented her with the letter of determination.
She was not only surprised but grateful to the fire company for all its support to Charlie and his family.

On 9/19 at about 2135hrs after numerous 911 calls, a building box assignment was struck for the 400 block of Ohio Ave. Ridley Township Police, first on scene, an active fire on second floor of a twin home located in town. Crews were met with heavy fire and smoke upon arrival, and shortly after starting to make a fight on the fire, a second alarm was struck. After approximately seven minutes into the fire, evacuation tones were sounded and the companies went into an exterior defensive attack. Once some of the fire was knocked crews then regrouped and pushed back in to fight the stubborn blaze. Great work by all crews on scene.
Some assisting companies included 18-Folsom, 43-Holmes, 67-Woodlyn, 12-Eddystone, Medic Ridley 7, R.I.T. 56 from Chester County and Tower 61 Reliance who was covering station 17-Aston Twp. , at the time of the call. 2nd alarm also included 44-7-Springfield EMS and Medic 102.

After graduation was completed, the fire crew mounted up on Tower49 and Engine49-1 and hit the street and headed up to the high school and set up the engine and tower for some deluge gun work and flowed a large amount of water. The crew also worked on ground ladder placement, and raising and lowering techniques.

In addition to Milmont, Charlie also performed his artistry on many of Delaware County and surrounding area fire apparatus. His skill will be missed and will not be duplicated. The officers and members of the Milmont Fire Company hold Charlie and his family in prayers.
This week drill companies from Milmont (Tower, Engine, Ambulance), Folsom (18), and Prospect Park (08) drilled at the Montgomery County Fire Academy. Members from all the companies drilled on R.I.T., fire suppression, hose advancement, search and rescue, as well as other firefighting techniques. The drill lasted about 3 hours.

Ambulance 49-7 covered the annual Ridley Township Police Association Safety Picnic on May 11th. Several minor injuries were attended to , but no one required to go to the hospital.
The picnic is held every year where Ridley Township elementary school kids participate in fun and games. EMS Captain Amy Jackson and EMS Lt. Nancy Sullivan stood by for any emergencies. Milmont Fire Company EMS had been volunteering their time for years to ensure the safety of those who participate.
This year along with all the fun, there was also a K9 demonstration from K9 Officer from Ridley Park Police with his dog Jager, Boeing Fire Company TAC unit, DJ John Saddic provided music, and once again the Philly Phanatic.
Special thanks goes out to all the officers of Ridley Township, Eddystone Police, Ridley Township Highway Department, and especially retiring after 30 years of service to Ridley Township, Mark Vonderstuck for making every picnic a success.
