Laurel Health Helps Fund Fire Hall

Community bands together to support Station 8


by John Vogt - August 12, 2019

At 5:57 pm Station 8 got the dispatch. When the call came in, the firemen realized it was their own firehouse. When the crew got to Station 8 flames were already shooting out the doors. The fire was devastating. Station 8 would loose three trucks and all of their gear and supplies. Thankfully no one was injured putting out the blaze. Insurance companies are in the process of investigating the tragedy and hopefully will be able to determine the cause of the fire.

On today’s broadcast, Home Page Vice President Sara Vogt talks with Fire Chief Bradley Hackett of the Lawrenceville Fire Department about that fateful evening. Chief Bradley shares about the crises and how Station 8 is pulling together and staying strong.

Since the night of the tragedy, numerous organizations, as well as individuals from all over the region, have come together to support Lawrenceville’s Volunteer Fire Department. With help and encouragement from the community, surrounding fire departments, and the management and staff of Laurel Health Station 8 is staying strong and pressing forward. Vehicles have been donated by the Knoxville Volunteer Fire Company, South Williamsport Fire Department and the Galeton Fire Department.

During the second half of today’s broadcast, Sara Vogt talks with Practice Manager, LuAnn Wheeler and President and CEO of Laurel Health, Jim Nobles about their desire to support Station Eight. After the tragedy struck, LuAnn reached out to Jim Nobles at Laurel Health for help. Mr. Nobles took the challenge to his team and on to the Laurel Health staff. The staff at Laurel Health immediately rallied to assist as they always seem to do during times of crises. As a result of their efforts, Home Page cameras were there as a check was presented to Chief Bradley Hackett.

You can stand with Station 8 and be a tremendous encouragement on Sept 21st during Lawrenceville Day starting at 4:00 pm. You will have the opportunity to meet and greet Chief Hackett and the rest of his Station 8 crew. The parade will take place at 4:00 pm and there will be various games for children and a special movie night. The evening will conclude with a fireworks display.

All of us here at The Home Page Network applauds the efforts of all who have stepped up to assist Station 8. Station 8, you are a great example and encouragement to all of us on how to stay strong in the midst of crises. We pray God’s best for you as you rise from the ashes.
