With the upcoming grant for breathing apparatus and a new compressor/fill station we have work to do. Lieutenant John Steigert, pictured here, and Former Fire Chief/Engineer Charles Kelly spent some time meeting with representatives of the compressor fill station and started on some electrical work.
The compressor/fill station is needed to fill cylinders used on the new breathing apparatus. This is some of the bread and butter stuff needed to effectively and safely fight fire!!
Another big step for the new station!!
Thanks Gentlemen! We appreciate your service!! ... See MoreSee Less
On Monday, July 24th, 2017, at 1008 hours, the Volunteers of the Indiana Fire Association along with our mutual aid partners of the Clymer Volunteer Fire Company and the Homer City Volunteer Fire Company were activated for a commercial structure fire at 722 South Street.
Indiana Borough Police Officer arrived on scene in less than one minute and found a working basement fire at the residence. Bystanders were attempting to extinguish the fire using a garden hose.
Fire Administrator Paul Koons responded as the OIC along with First Assistant Fire Chief (FAFC) Thomas Moreau, Third Assistant Fire Chief (TAFC) Ronald Moreau, Ladder 101 (L101) and Engine 102 (E102) from the Central Station and Engine 108 (E108) from the White Township Station.
TAFC Moreau arrived on scene and initiated command. L101 arrived with a crew of two (2) and established a water supply with the hydrant located at the intersection of South 7th and South Streets. L101 then took a position behind Pizza Hut. Former Fire Chief/Engineer Charles Kelly arrived on scene moments before L101 and took over the pumping duties. That allowed Engineer/Fire Fighter Michael Moreau and Lieutenant Benjamin Harley to advance a pre-connected one and three quarter inch (1 3/4") hand line into the structure. As crews advanced, they found that the bystanders had extinguished a significant amount of the fire prior to fire department arrival.
E102 and E108 arrived on scene with limited manpower. Ventilation and laddering of the structure was accomplished. Additional manpower from the Clymer VFD and Homer City VFD arrived on scene to assist.
As always the Association would like to thank not only our volunteers, but the volunteers from Clymer and Homer City. Without our mutual aid partners, responses to these incidents would suffer. ... See MoreSee Less

Tonight it rained, but that didn't dampen our spirits during All Company Drill! Tonight we played with some new nozzles and intended on staying dry. No luck! We were wet, but we were happy! Thanks to the crews for a great evening! ... See MoreSee Less
