York United Area Fire and Rescue

October 8, 2019 – Fire Chief Daniel J. Hoff discussed fire prevention week and the formation of the York Area United Fire and Rescue. In 2004 the elected boards of Spring Garden Township and Springettsbury Township voted to combine resources when it came to the fire service. Each were operating its own department, which mirrored themselves in terms of personnel, equipment, and operations.   In 2011 Manchester Township Board of Supervisors elected to contract management services from YAUFR as they evaluated joining the regional department. The process of sharing management services and resources has allowed the departments to come together under common operational procedures to allow for efficient emergency services delivery.
The Mission of York Area United Fire and Rescue is to provide the highest level of proactive, professional service to the citizens and businesses of our participating municipalities, through the provision of regional fire suppression, fire prevention, emergency medical services, disaster planning and public education.

USAID

October 1, 2019 - Alexious Butler from the United States Agency for International Development explained that the agency works to support long-term and equitable economic growth and advances foreign policy objectives by supporting: a) economic growth, b) agriculture and trade, c) global health, and d) democracy, conflict prevention and humanitarian assistance. USAID is an independent federal agency established by the Foreign Assistance Act in 1961 for the purpose of extending economic assistance to developing countries.
She is currently enrolled at the Army War College and until this year was the Deputy Director of the USAID mission in Haiti. Haiti was a challenge due to the political climate, poverty and corruption.
 

Climate and Health

 September  24, 2019 – Dr. Alan Peterson spoke to us about  how climate change is altering seasonal temperature and precipitation patterns, making hot days hotter and increasing the frequency of extreme weather events like the record-breaking rain that flooded large swaths of Pennsylvania in August 2018. As a result, Pennsylvanians face a variety of health threats including more heat-related illnesses, breathing and heart problems, food and water contamination, and increased exposure to infectious diseases. These threats will only increase as power plants, transportation systems, and other big polluters continue to pump climate-changing emissions into the air. We must take action now to ensure a healthy climate for our children and grandchildren.

Garden Club of York

September 17, 2019 - Tonya Young spoke to us about the Garden Club of York which is a friendly, active group of civic-minded gardeners in York County. The club works to beautify our city and raise funds to support their efforts. The Garden Club of York is known for the beautiful hanging baskets throughout the City of York. The community has generously supported efforts to raise funds to buy and care for the baskets each year. 2017 was a record year with 200 baskets. The club focuses on Conservation, Education, Beautification, Horticulture and Floral Design. Membership is open to all who love any aspect of gardening! They have learned about bats, vegetable gardening, seeds, succulents, horticulture therapy, antique tools, trees, miniature gardens and floral design, just to name a few. They offer workshops on Flower Pressing, Floral Design, Container Gardening and Garden Crafts.
