A mailing has been sent out from a company called the Volunteer Firefighter Alliance asking for a donation to be made.

HFC sent Ladder 19 to assist Mill Creek Fire Company on this smoke investigation earlier today. Thanks to Tyler’s Bar & Grille for the mention and photo.Mill Creek Fire Company - Stations 2&21 Hockessin Fire Company - Station 19 Cranston Heights Fire Company Christiana Fire Company - 3 House Belvedere Fire Company Well, we had some excitement this Monday morning! We smelled smoke before opening and with an abundance of caution called the right people! Fortunately, everything was fine, but it would be remiss of us not to give a shout-out to these amazing fire companies. They responded quickly and professionally. There communication and care with us was fantastic. They did nothing less than honor their profession and treated us and Tyler’s with kid gloves and great respect. Without exception, every person there knew what they were doing and showed compassion to us all. We are grateful beyond words. Stay safe and God Bless! ... See MoreSee Less
