Lingohocken Fire Company responded to 207 emergencies in 2012, according to an annual report released this month.
According to the report, 2012 was the third busiest year in the fire company’s 99-year history.
Lingohocken, which serves all of Wrightstown Township and parts of Buckingham and Upper Makefield, responded to 228 emergencies in 2010 and 217 emergencies in 2011.
In 2012, the fire company also conducted 29 chief’s investigations and pump details. Chief’s investigations included malfunctioning fire alarms, pet rescues and carbon monoxide alarms.
“Despite this workload, our firefighters experienced only two minor first aid injuries during the year and there were no injuries or deaths by fire suffered by civilians in Lingohocken’s coverage area,” the report states.
“The growth that continues to occur in our service area will continue to see increased service demands on our organization. Thanks to partnerships with the communities that we service, and surrounding mutual aid companies, we believe we continue to be prepared to meet that challenge,” the report states.
