Art of Reading Buildings - Dave Dodson


The Upper Perkiomen Emergency Service Association is proud to host The Art of Reading Buildings, presented by Dave Dodson on November 5, 2016.  

Tired of the usual, boring building construction classes?  We know it's an important topic - yet find the classes difficult to choke down.  Well, this class takes a whole new approach that is designed to provide essential tools and practice in making rapid street-reads on buildings.  Dave Dodson and John Mittendorf (retired BC, Los Angeles City Fire, CA) have collaborated in developing this day-long, practical classroom session that should be mandatory for all firefighters.

Course Cost:  $40.00 per person

Course Date / Time:  November 5th, 2016 - 8AM to 4PM

Course Location:  Upper Perkiomen High School, 2 Walt Road, Pennsburg, PA 18073

Fire Prevention Week

Fire Prevention Week 2016 proved busy for members of the East Greenville Fire Company.    We were visited by Lifespan Day Care and New Goshenhoppen Nursery School.  We visited the Palm Country Day School and Hereford Elementary School.  On Thursday, October 13th we hosted our Annual Fire Prevention Open House.  The EGFD then assisted Red Hill Fire Company with their Open House on Friday, October 14th and then visited PetValue for a small fire prevention detail on Saturday, October 15th.  Thanks to all the kids and families that came out to support us at all of these events.  I would especially like to thank all of the volunteer firefighters that used vacation time to make sure our fire prevention message was spread to as many people as possible.

Thanks - Chief, Jason R. Wilson
