Lansdowne Station 19

Many people think of fire prevention and fire safety once a year -- in October during fire prevention week. The members of the Lansdowne Fire Company want the public to think of fire prevention and fire safety all year long.

The Lansdowne Fire Company has a very progressive and on going fire prevention and fire safety program, this program which includes firehouse tours and visits to schools and community groups. Although the majority of these programs are done in September and October fire prevention and safety programs are available year round. To schedule a fire prevention or fire safety program contact the firehouse or e-mail us at info@lansdownefirecompany.com

The fire prevention team of the Lansdowne Fire Company schedules and presents all fire safety programs in the Borough. These programs are suitable for all ages and can be brought to your location or done at the firehouse. Last year the Fire Company won an honorable mention at the State Firefighters Convention for the presentation of fire prevention programs. Not only does the fire prevention team present these programs, but they also schedule the annual fire prevention show at the firehouse during Fire Prevention Week. This annual event includes fire safety presentations and demonstrations. The firefighters show how they use their firefighting and rescue skills, and members of the public can tour the firehouse and fire and EMS equipment.

The fire prevention team of the Lansdowne Fire Company reminds everyone that fire prevention should be practiced every day by everyone. To keep your home safe we recommend the following:

  • Install smoke detectors on every level of your home and test the batteries at least twice a year.
  • Install carbon monoxide detectors on every level of your home and test them at least twice a year.
  • Practice Exit Drills In Your Home (EDITH) and know what to do and where to go if fire strikes your house.
  • In an emergency dial 911.
