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.

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.

Good Citizens

Thursday, May 14, 2015  Today May 14, 2015 the Milmont Fire Co. hosted Grace Park Elementary"s Kindergarten classes for the second year. They are learning what Good Citizens do and came to the firehouse to meet the men and women that volunteer to serve the community. We had an AM and a PM tour. The boys and girls met Captain Richard Sullivan, Lisa Parks, Lexi Sullivan and Betsy Sullivan. Captain Sullivan showed the boys and girls the fire trucks and the Ambulance. The boys and girls had a chance to wear a fire Helmet, hold tools that the firemen use and even get into the trucks and ambulance to see what they were like. Milmont Fire Company was honored to have the Kindergarten class come to our firehouse. They all had many questions and Captain Sullivan was glad to answer each one of them. We would like to thank the teachers for bringing the kids today Dan Arrison and paraprofessional Kathy Austin, Katie In Kopay and Kendall Howanski.
