The Cetronia Ambulance Corps recently had a community open house at its new headquarters, 4300 Broadway, South Whitehall.
Included in the tour was an introduction to the new Lehigh County Coroner's facility, a state-of-the-art morgue designed to be the most efficient and thorough available.
Also on display were apparatus and equipment used by the Lehigh County HazMat team as well as the Emergency Management Agency and the county specialty rescue teams.
Congressman Charlie Dent, R-15th, recently helped deliver meals to homebound residents of Lehigh County.
Dent volunteers his help to Wheels on Meals of Lehigh County whenever Congress is not in session.
According to Michele Grasso, development director for Meals on Wheels, there is an ongoing need for volunteers to deliver meals to those who cannot prepare meals for themselves.
There are now 420 recipients being served, up from 370 a year ago.
All three South Whitehall fire departments along with Cetronia Ambulance Corps, Western Salisbury, Lower Macungie and Alburtis fire departments responded to a house fire 3:53 p.m. Oct. 12, at 406 Beverly Drive, South Whitehall Township.
Smoke and flames could be seen in an attached sunroom and there was the possibility the fire would spread into the home.
Homeowner Roger Hamm, wife, Lori, and their daughter were home at the time and were trying to control the fire with a garden hose.
