Ben to the Shore Bike Tour
Date: 05.31.2022

Families Behind the Badge Children's Foundation provides resources to the families of the Fallen in their time of need. We witnessed their generosity last year when we lost Sean DeMuynck and then again when LMFD suffered a second tragic loss with Tom Royds. The Ben to the Shore Bike Tour will be held on July 24. We have a dozen of our members and their family members riding this year. The LMFD / LMPD team is approaching 50 members. Please join us in supporting this great cause. Consider making a donation either to the Team or to a specific Team member. We thank you for any consideration you give this.

Penn Wynne Fire Company is Now Alerting Through Safety Cloud®
Date: 02.25.2022

Drivers in Wynnewood, PA can now receive real-time digital alerts when fire apparatus are active nearby through a new service equipped on Penn Wynne Fire Company apparatus. Safety Cloud by HAAS Alert protects first responders and roadway fleets and improves driver compliance with Move Over laws by sending real-time notifications to drivers approaching active responders en-route or on-scene. The service reduces the risk of drivers colliding with responders and workers in the field and improves awareness for all drivers by adding a digital component to lights and sirens.

Drivers can receive the alerts through the Waze navigation app, available on mobile devices and in the dashboard of many newer-model vehicles. HAAS Alert is working to expand the alerts to other services and vehicles so that all drivers can receive these critical road safety alerts.

Even though Pennsylvania’s Move Over laws require drivers to slow down and move one lane over when approaching active emergency vehicles, many drivers still react slowly or fail to move over. Safety Cloud alerts give drivers up to 30 seconds of advance warning to help solve this problem.

“We’re excited to add another level of protection for our firefighters in order to make sure they are able to do their jobs as safely as possible,” said Fire Chief Ted Schmid. "This service connects and protects our crews in the field and the drivers around them by giving motorists extra time to see us, slow down, and move over safely. Waze is a free-to-use app, so we encourage drivers to get advanced warning of our presence when we’re actively responding.”
