Fired Up For Christmas ...

“My favorite color is Christmas lights.”

The Cetronia Volunteer Fire Department is festooned and “fired up” for Christmas as Christmas lights frame the building with the holiday spirit in the Borough of Cetronia, Allentown, Pennsylvania on a mid-December evening.

Cetronia Volunteer Fire Department is located at 3950 Broadway, Allentown. It operates 1 Engine Company, 1 Rescue Engine, 1 Ladder Tower, and 1 Utility. It responds to about 700 calls a year ranging from vehicle accidents to working dwelling fires. Currently, the firehouse has about 25-30 active volunteers dedicating time not only to running calls, but training, fire prevention, and house work. The department meets every Monday night at 6 p.m. for its weekly drill. Stop by anytime the doors are open for a tour or an application.

The department’s 2019 Santa Run will take place December 21. Starting with a departure from the firehouse at 10 a.m., Santa will be escorted around the department’s first-due area by its fleet of fire trucks and its members.
