Brookville Volunteer Fire Company Getting New Ladder Truck

Brookville Volunteer Fire CompanyBROOKVILLE, Pa. (EYT) – The Brookville Volunteer Fire Company is getting a new ladder truck.

New Chief Dave Miller was not present at Tuesday’s meeting, but he did have a report prepared for borough council, explaining the total price of the truck would be about $854,000.00 with the company financing $110,000.00.

Borough council approved releasing $55,000.00 that had been set aside to help pay for the truck.

Earlier this fall, former Chief Steve Hoak said the company was making plans to replace its ladder truck, which is nearly 30 years old.

Also, Miller wrote in his report that Brookville will be working more closely with its neighboring company – Pine Creek Volunteers.

“Aside from just running alarms together, we will be training more with them and being better neighbors to them,” Miller said.

Miller also reported that three retired members returned to active membership in December, and three new members joined in January with two being already trained.

“The outlook for additional members coming here is positive,” Miller said.

Council President Pro-Tem Bill Kutz said it was encouraging to hear the fire company was getting built back while councilman Dave Ferringer was pleased to hear about increased cooperation.

The Officers for 2017 include Deputy Chief Ryan Pearsall; First Assistant Chief Michael Allgeier; Second Assistant Chief Ed Schrecengost; President Kyle Zents; Vice President Brian Selnekovic; Treasurer Michael Wonderling; and Secretary Katie Zents.
