The officers of the Lincoln Fire Co. are extremely proud of the young men and women who choose to be active members. During this month, an Eagle Scout Awards Program was held at the station recognizing Eric Showalter and Josiah Fegley for their Eagle Scout projects completed at the fire station. The Lincoln Fire Company now has a total of 6 active firefighters who are Eagle Scouts for the Boy Scouts of America.We have two active firefighters, Kiersten Rountree and Brett Fahnestock who will be graduating this week from High School. Kiersten spent her entire senior year participating in the Protective Services curriculum of the Lancaster County Career and Technology Center held at the County Public Safety Training Center. She received the training she needs to be an EMT and interior firefighter during the year, being at the Training Center every school day. She received a top honor from the Lancaster County Firemens Assn. as the outstanding student in the program. Kiersten has enlisted for four years in the United States Air Force.The youth involved in the Lincoln Fire Company are dedicated to serving the Ephrata Area and the officers and members could not be more proud of all the young men and women. We currently have 14 firefighters under that age of 23 serving the community.
