Today a few members from OVFC spent a few hours teaching fire safety to a group of homeschoolers. They learned all about extinguishers, smoke detectors, the gear firefighters wear, and home escape plans. They finished off their visit with watching firefighters race in a two minute drill, looking at all our trucks, and fire trucks rides. 👩🏼🚒🚒🚨🧑🏼🚒 ... See MoreSee Less

At 2:17pm yesterday afternoon crews were dispatched to Haycock mountain for a cliff rescue. This rescue took an extended period of time and multiple fire companies to complete due to the rough terrain of the mountain. A great job was done by all!

⚠️UPDATED LAW TO GO INTO EFFECT TOMORROW 4/27/21
Keep our emergency responders safe ❤️
Pennsylvania’s Move Over Law requires drivers approaching an emergency response area who are unable to safely merge into a lane further away from the response area to slow to at least 20 mph less than the posted speed limit. An emergency response area is where an emergency vehicle has its lights flashing, or where road crews or emergency responders have lighted flares, posted signs, or try to warn travelers.
Act 105 of 2020, signed on October 29, 2020 and effective 180 days later on April 27, 2021:
- Creates a new point system that imposes two points for failure to merge into the lane not next to the emergency response area.
- Sets fines at $500 for first-time offenders, $1,000 for a second offense, and $2,000 for a third or subsequent offense.
- Requires a 90-day license suspension for a third or subsequent offense. The license suspension also applies to incidents that seriously injure or kill another person. The suspension is six months if the person injured or killed is an emergency service provider or was near a disabled vehicle.
- Sets additional fines of up to $10,000 for violators who injure or kill an emergency service responder or a person in or near a disabled vehicle.
- Doubled fines for several traffic violations when committed in an emergency response area when first responders are present. ... See MoreSee Less

The Officers and Members of the Riegelsville and Ottsvile Fire Companies are currently researching, investigating and planning the potential consolidation of fire companies. The consolidation of companies will be guided by a professional firm that will allow us to address all financial, apparatus, membership and response aspects of the new company. We are working to build the strongest emergency response network for our community possible! We are bringing two already strong agencies together to increase our abitlty to train and certify our members while streamlining equipment and maximize purchasing power. It will also allow us to explore new funding opportunities in a world that is becoming ever difficult to maintain 100% volunteer based organizations. Please understand that this is a positive step in strengthening our services to our community! ... See MoreSee Less
