The last 36 hours have been busy for the Lincoln Volunteers. Thursday morning at 7:30 the Rescue was alerted to assist Station 15 on an accident with reported entrapment. Just before the rescue arrived we were placed available as patient self extricated. The company would handle 3 more calls for the day an automatic alarm, cardiac arrest, and another accident. Thursday evening we traveled to a local farm for the 4th and final night of farm and tractor rescue class. 23 volunteers completed the class. Overnight the Rescue was back on the street assisting Station 15 again at Ephrata Manor on an automatic alarm. Friday 9 Volunteers spent the day doing fire prevention and then Friday evening 5 Volunteers washed all the apparatus to prepare for our open house tomorrow. ... See MoreSee Less

On Tuesday around 7:15am Rescue 16 was requested as the 2nd due rescue to assist the Denver Fire Company on a vehicle accident with entrapment on the PA Turnpike. Denver fire was on scene with a car versus tractor trailer and 3 trapped in the car. Rescue 16 entered the PA Turnpike at the Sandy Hill Rd. gate and went eastbound. Just prior to Rescue 16 arrival, Denver Fire had extricated 2 of the 3 patients. Rescue 16 arrived and crews from both rescue companies worked together to extricate the 3rd patient. Luckily everyone suffered non life threatening injuries. Great job by everyone on the scene that helped to make this outcome a positive one. ... See MoreSee Less

On Tuesday 9/18 for training the Lincoln Volunteers traveled to a local farm to do some rescue training. The night focused on lifting a piece of farm machinery to rescue someone trapped under it. Crews repeated the scenario five times and each time had to lift with a different piece of equipment kept on Rescue 16. A total of 28 members participated in the training. ... See MoreSee Less

Tuesday afternoon soon after 5PM the Lincoln Fire Company along with surrounding mutual aid was dispatched to the 1400 block of W. Main St. for a reported house fire. Assistant 16 arrived finding a small stove fire that was out. Engine 16-1 and Rescue 16 confirmed the fire was out and ventilated the smoke from the house. As units were clearing the house fire Rescue 16 was added to a vehicle accident being upgraded with entrapment in Ephrata Pioneer Fire Co. first due. Rescue 16 arrived and along with the crew from Engine 15-1 stabilized the vehicle and had the patient extricated in under 10 minutes. Traffic 16 provided traffic control at both incidents. ...

On Tuesday Sept. 11 the Lincoln Volunteers traveled to Shady Maple Smorgasbord for dinner and a night of fellowship. Shady Maple handed out meal vouchers to local emergency services in the area to show their appreciation. Lincoln chose to go as a group on our training night so the members could spend some time together while not running calls and training. We would like to thank Shady Maple Smorgasbord for this very generous gift for our members. We would also like to thank Akron Fire Company, Ephrata Pioneer Fire Company, and Durlach Mt. Airy Fire Company for covering us while our members enjoyed a few hours away from our 1st due area. ... See MoreSee Less

This past Tuesday around 11PM the calls started coming and wouldn't stop. The company would handle 14 calls over the next 24 hours consisting of water rescues, investigations, and pump details. The company also loaned one water rescue member to help staff Boat 15 which was also very busy running many calls. Pictured on this call three water rescue members enter the flood waters to rescue someone who drove into high water on Hackman Road. Remember "Turn Around Dont Drown". ... See MoreSee Less
Why oh why do people always do this?!? Oh, that's right, everyone is in such a hurry to get who knows where that they can't take the time to turn around and go another way. News flash: it's gonna take hours even days until your car can be removed from the 4 ft. of water you were in such a hurry to drive into! And yes you will be the butt of many jokes and laughed at by many!!! 😂😂😂
Thank you for all of your hard work and time
Thank you for your hard work god bless and keep you all safe

IMPORTANT! POSSIBLE SCAM ALERT: Some local folks have shared with us that an organization called Volunteer Fire Fighters Alliance is soliciting donations all across Lancaster County without the permission of the fire companies their letters claim to represent. The fire companies will likely only get a tiny percentage if any on the $ donated to this organization. Please do not send donations to any address other than directly to your local fire company! This out of state company is soliciting donations on behalf of volunteer fire companies across Lancaster County without their knowledge of permission! Lincoln Fire Company does not have any affiliation with this organization. Our fund drive is mailed out in the fall and all donations are to be sent directly to our address.
See sample of letter that was received in the Adamstown area below. This is a SCAM. ... See MoreSee Less
