This week, Woodlawn joins the nation in thanking its emergency medical providers with National EMS Week. We are proud to work with Cetronia Ambulance Corps and other mutual aid partners to provide high-quality care to our neighbors and visitors in need. Woodlawn participates in a statewide licensing program called Quick Response Service (QRS), in which most of our vehicles carry medical equipment and are staffed by volunteers that are trained to the level of Emergency Medical Responder (EMR), Emergency Medical Technician (EMT), Paramedic, Pre-Hospital Registered Nurse (PHRN) and Pre-Hospital Physician Extender (PHPE) to initiate care and assist once a transport EMS unit arrives; many of these providers work full-time in healthcare throughout the region as well. From a department grateful for your service and sacrifice, thank you EMS! ... See moreSee less

From our colleagues in Western New York, great job today! Closing doors will isolate and slow a fire, as well as provide valuable time for you and your family to escape.Today we responded to a house fire, a closed door slowed the fire spread and allowed our firefighters to extinguish the fire before it spread. The pictures show a clear reason why you should always keep your doors closed.

In case of fire, a closed door can isolate the fire's flow, reduce room temperature and keep carbon monoxide levels down. "Close Before You Doze" aims to make closing doors at night part of people's bedtime routine.

Woodlawn joins with Greenawalds Fire/Rescue 11 mourning the recent loss of their former chief and longtime member Richard Frantz.FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: April 20, 2019

PASSING OF LIFE MEMBER AND PAST CHIEF RICHARD FRANTZ

SOUTH WHITEHALL TOWNSHIP, PA – It is with deep sadness and heavy hearts, that the Greenawalds Fire Department announces the passing of Life Member and Past Chief Richard “Richie” Frantz. Joining the department on November 11, 1952, Richie remained a member (most of these years active) for the next 66 years. Richie passed away on April 19, 2019 surrounded by his loving family. Serving as Chief of Department from 1990 through 1993, and holding many other positions in the department, Richie lived a life of service to his community. Among his innumerable contributions to the Fire Department, he was instrumental in the formation of the South Whitehall Township Rescue program, the Lehigh County Hazardous Material team, and was always on the cutting edge of fire service education and tactics.

Richie was predeceased by his wife, Nancy. He is survived by his son, South Whitehall Township Fire Marshal John Frantz and his wife Kristie; grandchildren Daniel, Sarah, and Asa; and many friends. Funeral arrangements are pending, and services for Chief Frantz will be announced as they become available.

In lieu of flowers, Richie has asked for contributions to be made to his beloved Greenawalds Fire Department.
