Passing of Life Ladies Auxillary Member Eleanor Strickler

Thursday, September 25, 2014  It is with deep sadness we announce the death of Life Ladies Auxillary Member Eleanor Strickler. Eleanor is the grandmother of current Delta-Cardiff Chief Joe Strickler. Eleanor was a sweet lady that can be remembered for her smile and nice words.  Eleanor was one of the 5 ladies in town who had emergency phones in their homes. When an emergency call came in, she would take the information, activate the siren and the first one at the station would pick up the phone for the information. She also would call the duty crew for ambo calls. Eleanor was small in stature, but a "True Giant" in the history of Delta Cardiff VFC. Our thoughts and prayers go out to the Strickler family.




Monday, September 15, 2014   The ambulance divisions of Citizens Volunteer Fire Company & Delta-Cardiff Volunteer Fire Company along with Brogue Ambulance are pleased to announce their intention to merge. This effort will provide a regionalized approach to delivering patient care in the southeastern York County area. Operating under a unified leadership and responding from strategically positioned locations allows us to promptly deliver high quality patient care in a cost effective manner. No company is saying "we can’t do it on our own" but rather the departments recognized we can do it even better by working together. During the planning phase of the merger the leaders of the departments have worked closely with municipal officials and community members to ensure that we deliver the best possible service to our community members. The merger is slated to be completed in the Spring of 2015.                                                                                                                                                                                Alex Christ, NREMT-P

The Mason Dixon Fair along with the Delta-Cardiff Volunteer Fire Company would like to thank our communities that came out and supported us for the Mason Dixon Fair last week. We were fortunate and had some good weather with the exception of two nights. The organizers of the fair did an awesome job as usual in putting on a great fair this year bringing different communities together and it showed what people working together can do. There is a lot of hard work that goes into not only organizing it, but also setting up, running, and tearing it down. Thank you to those that have spent countless hours on the committee, preparing for and all the volunteers that run it. The people that are involved are all volunteers. To our communities that came out and supported us we would like to say THANK YOU for your support!!! Without our communities support, we could not be there to respond when you call. THANK YOU!!!
