WEST HAZLETON FIRE COMPANY PRESS RELEASE ABOUT FIREMAN’S RELIEF AUDIT

In 2018, the West Hazleton Fire Company and Fireman’s Relief Association was served a search warrant for the collection of documents and electronic devices due to suspicion of theft by certain company members. A recent audit was completed and results are from that period as well.

The company has been very troubled by this situation, and the suspected parties are no longer associated with the association. Additionally, the organization has spent the past year taking appropriate actions to provide additional checks and balances to prevent this type of activity from occurring in the future with the help of the West Hazleton Police Department and Pennsylvania Auditor General’s Office.

While this activity is cause for concern, it has not affected in any way the company’s ability to respond to calls for assistance. The Fire Company has continuously responded to calls for assistance for numerous medical assist calls, motor vehicle accidents, and fires during all hours in the same manner the public has come to expect from us.

The West Hazleton Fireman’s Relief Association would like to thank the public for continuing to support us this past year and recognizing our outstanding service to the community.
We have worked diligently over the past year to internally put this issue behind us and allow our complete focus to be on moving the company forward, while continuing to provide the excellent service expected of us by our residents and visitors.

This will be the only official statement made by the organization and its members on this matter as it is now in the hands of our legal system. The Association has been cooperating with the investigation since the start and we trust that our faith in the legal system will allow the situation to be resolved through those proceedings.

On Saturday December 7th 2019 at 0159 hours 183 Station, Greater Hazleton Ambulance and Medic 26 were dispatched to 436/438 West Green Street on a reported structure fire. 183 Engine 1 arrived with 183 Truck shortly after dispatch and found a 2 ½ story double family home converted into multiple apartments with heavy smoke showing from the B side of the structure. Engine 1 hit the plug at West Green Street/Stankevich Street. Engine 1’s crew stretched a 1 ¾ hand line to the second floor as a second line was stretched to the third floor where heavy fire was found extended from the second floor.

Crews were met with heavy fire on the third floor and Hazleton City was requested for an Engine and Hazle Township for R.I.T. Hazleton City Engine 2 arrived and crews were sent to the second and third floors to relieve interior crews. Hazle Township stood-by with R.I.T. duties and also provided manpower on division three with overhaul. After approximately 30 minutes the fire was placed under control and overhaul was in progress. The American Red Cross was requested and assisted the displaced.

All occupants were able to make it out safely. West Hazleton Police Department and State Police Fire Marshal were on scene conducting an investigation.

Rest Easy Brother! Your job is now over, you are going home!This morning Lt. Menard was supposed to be taking his family to Disney. But last night his final actions were to protect the lives of trapped civilians and to ensure his crew made it out of harrowing conditions. The heroic actions of 39 year-old Lt. Jason Menard were in the highest traditions of firefighting. And the outcome incredibly tragic. Yet, that people are still capable of such selfless deeds is truly inspiring.

Remember what we are here for, who we are here for, and that the outcome of each day is not certain. Stay focused, train every day, look out for each other, and treasure your moments at home. We are all we have, and we are our brothers keeper.
