Assisting Saxton PD

Share via email

Saxton Fire Police assisted Saxton PD with a traffic detail on Main St. At approximately 1430 Saxton PD alerted Bedford County Dispatch that the traffic lights were in ‘emergency mode’. It was determined the cause was a short on the high voltage lines on the pole. Visible arcing was reported, and Penelec was notified. At approximately 1930, Penelec initiated work on Main St. They rerouted power to minimize the spread of the power outage, and started the repairs. Initially, they thought only an insulator need replaced. During the maintenance, they determined a switch also needed replaced. Power was restored at approximately 2245.

Company 35 Public Information Officer Branden S. Diehl said, “The outage was expected to take approximately 45 minutes to an hour. Replacing the switch caused the work to last longer than expected.The outage disrupted Main Street businesses, and impacted a dance; had the damaged insulator not been detected a larger, electrical hazard may have developed. Contrary to popular belief, the signal light was not the cause of the outage–it was merely the canary in the mine alerting authorities to the problem.”

Buck Memorial

Share via email

Saxton Volunteer Fire Company took part in the memorial service for Firefighter Buck. Crews from throughout the region, state, and neighboring states sent representatives to pay their final respects. More than 100 pieces of apparatus escorted Firefighter Buck to his final resting place. Thank you Firefighter Buck for your selfless sacrifice.

Chief Taylor said, “It’s a tragedy anytime we lose a member of our family. This event was no different. Those that are called to be firefighters know this may be their fate. We train, we prepare, we take precautions, but at the end of the day we are fighting an unpredictable adversary. A special thanks to all that put on the boots and gear, leave their families, and answer that call no matter the time or the personal risk!”
