Hey Kids! Santa Claus will take a quick break from his Christmas preparations and make one last check of his naughty and nice list in Southampton. On Saturday, December 21, 2013 (rain date: Sunday, December 22), members of the Southampton Fire Company will escort Santa around town on a fire truck between 9:00am and 3:00pm. Listen for the sirens and horns on your street, and be sure to come outside and greet him. Santa’s helpers will give out candycanes to you kids. But don’t run out into the street. Just stand on your lawn; Santa’s helpers will greet you there.
Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays.

SFC responded to the Eastbound PA Turnpike last night for an auto extrication with one heavily entrapped. Crews from Rescue 2, Engine 2, Engine 65 (Nottingham Fire Department – Station 65), and Rescue 4 (Trevose) worked for about 30 minutes to free the driver. Once again, great teamwork!
SFC was dispatched to the 2-15 box last night for the dwelling fire with entrapment. 73PD arrived with a working fire and made a great grab, rescuing one victim. E2 arrived and secured their own plug, stretched a line and performed a primary search (results negative). L2′s crew split, assisting with the search and throwing ground ladders and venting. Thanks to Northampton, Warminster, Hartsville, and Trevose fire companies for your help, great teamwork!
