Norristown Tragedy -- A Lesson For All Families

Secretary Bill Wohl, February 07

When a 12 year-old Norristown boy ran back in to a house fire yesterday to try and rescue his disabled father, he needlessly lost his life because the rest of his family were outside, in back of the house. No one should EVER return into a burning home for any reason -- yet many people perish because they simply cannot find a loved one. All of this could be avoided with smart family emergency planning.

Station 222 Hosts Pinewood Derby

Secretary Bill Wohl, February 06

The West Grove Fire Company's London Britain Station was the host location for area Cub Scouts to race their pinewood derby cars this weekend.

In the shadow of WGFC's 1928 antique fire truck known as "Elsie," Cub Scouts of all ages put their designs to the test on a multi-car track featuring digital timing. Dozens of kids competed, using cars they had to design and build themselves.

It was ... (Full Story & Photos)

WGFC Responds During Winter Storm Jonas

Todd Mazur & Bill Wohl, January 24

Winter storm Jonas delivered quite a wallop to the West Grove area – the storm quickly escalated into blizzard conditions and left behind 25 inches of snow. Life was not easy in the Avon Grove area. High snowfall rates, high winds and cold temperatures hampered snow removal for both road crews and residents – and for much of Saturday and Saturday night, roads were nearly impassable, and conditions ...

Help Us Help You: Storm Emergency Safety Clean Up Tips for Area Residents

Secretary Bill Wohl, January 24

As the area digs out from record snowfall, please keep these very important tips in mind:

1) If your neighborhood has fire hydrants, please help use by clearing snow from all around hydrants -- best case, a three foot diameter circle. Did the snow plow bury the hydrant? If we can get to it in an emergency, we can't get to water quickly. Please help us by digging it out.

2) Is your house number ... (Full Story & Photos)

WGFC Responds in Storm for Snow Plow Fire

Secretary Bill Wohl, January 23

As a winter storm intensified from moderate snow to a full-out blizzard, West Grove Fire Company volunteers were called to the Franklin Township Building for a reported truck fire.

WGFC units had just returned to their stations after a chimney fire on Lewisville Road in New London Township. A steady light snow was falling, with area roadways snow covered and slippery.

Upon dispatch, Engines 221, ... (Full Story & Photos)

A broken hydraulic line resulted in an engine compartment fire that destroyed this Franklin Township plow just as a blizzard was starting.  Crews from Engine 223 extinguished this fire in 19 degree weather.

A Year in Review: 2015

Member Todd Mazur, January 01

The months of 2015 have come and gone quickly. We have all forgotten how we started the year with an early January snowstorm that gave us 1 ½ inches of snow. We should not forget the three day killing spree in Paris starting at the Charlie Hebdo magazine headquarters. As spring closed we were reminded that tragedy can strike close to home when an Amtrak train derailed in Philadelphia killing 8 ... (Full Story & Photos)
