June 11, 2016 – Liberty Fire Featured On WBRE

liberty fire co._1465696891385_8958215_ver1.0(WBRE/WYOU) — Firefighters save lives everyday, but we can’t expect them to rush into our burning homes without the proper equipment. That’s why a fire company in Schuylkill County is celebrating today. They’ve just found out they’re getting brand new gear.  Eyewitness News reporter Haley Bianco found out how the gear will be used now and by future firefighters.

“When you guys are running out of the building, we’re running into it. It’s at 3 in the morning when you’re sleeping, and we’re up out of bed ready to go,” said Greg Semanco, Liberty Fire Co. President.

After years of passing down old sets of gear, Liberty firefighters decided it was time to go shopping. With the help of a federal grant, the volunteer fire team gets state-of-the-art gear.

“We rely on it every day,” said Aaron Schimpf, assistant Fire Chief.

The new gear is lighter and more advanced, making the brave act of fighting fires a little bit safer.

May 7, 2016 – Last Pot Pie Dinner For the Season

The door has closed on the Liberty Fire Company Chicken Pot Pie season. Thank you to everyone that has continued to support us time and time again over the past couple months/years. Without you all, we wouldn’t be as successful as we have been. We are looking forward to taking the summer off, doing some upgrades, and preparing for other fundraisers held throughout the year. We will see everyone back in September!!

A huge thank you also goes out to all of our families! As you can see in this picture, (and there are several people missing) it takes a lot of people to make this as smooth and effortless operation. So thank you to all of our members and their families for sacrificing a whole Saturday to make a couple bucks for the Liberty. Enjoy the time off, September will be here before you know it! Thanks again!!
