Latest Highlights

Hands and Heart Mission Donation

Over the past few weeks, members of the Berkeley Hills Fire Company have been doing some spring cleaning at our Fire Station. During the cleanup, we found numerous usable kitchen items that were in great condition and not ready to be simply thrown out. This past weekend, members of our Fire Company met with a member of the Hands and Heart Mission from Gallitzen, PA, to donate nearly 100 kitchen items, including pots, pans, and utensils, for their use. The Hands and Heart Mission makes yearly trips in January to the poorest towns in Haiti, where their goal is to "strive to model a simple and balanced life within community." The Mission representative stated that the donations from the department will likely go to the orphanages who house hundreds of infants and children. For more information regarding Hands and Heart Mission, as well as the 2017 Sea Container Collection List, please see their website at http://ccwsisters.org/haiti-outreach-project/sea-container-collection-list/

After a bit of a wait, installation of our new sign began today. They are pouring the concrete today and it needs to set for a few days prior to the actual sign being installed. Keep your eyes peeled when passing by the station to keep tabs on the progress, and for messages from the Berkeley Hills Volunteers!

The Beginning of the End...

27 February 2015

Today marked the "beginning of the end" for the current sign for the Berkeley Hills Fire Company as Duquesne Light disconnected the power lines so that removal of the old sign could begin. We'll be replacing it with a new electronic sign in the weeks to come, though the new sign will probably not be installed (due to weather) until the end of March or early April. We will occasionally show the progress here with some pictures, so check back and watch while you're driving by the station!
