Clemens Family Corportation Donate

Last week, the Sellersville Fire Dept. hosted Mr. John Reininger, Corporate Vice President of the Clemens Family Corporation at our monthly business meeting. Mr. Reininger got to meet many of the members during his visit with us, and to see the equipment that we use in our many fire related activities.

While visiting with us, he presented the department with a ceremonial check in the amount of $40,000 from the Clemens Family Corporation to help defray the cost of the two command vehicles recently purchased by the department.

Needless to say, the department is both humbled by, and in awe of, the Clemens Family generosity. We send our sincere and heartfelt thanks to Mr. Reininger, and the Clemens Family Corporation for the faith and trust they have in us.

Below is a statement by Mr. Reining explaining corporation’s mission statement and core values.


Originally founded in 1895 by John C. Clemens, The Clemens Family Corporation continues to operate as a corporation deeply rooted in values. Since its beginnings, the corporation’s values have been its strength. These values can be seen in the quality products and services offered by each company within the corporation.

While not forgetting where it came from, The Clemens Family Corporation continues to look ahead by operating as a good steward of the community and the environment while offering innovative products and services to its valuable customers.

Fire Prevention Month

October was a busy yet fun month for the Sellersville Fire Department and the Fire Prevention Committee.  Fire Prevention week was held on the week of October 9th through 15th.  SFD firefighters visited 8 different schools and daycare facilities which included; Kids Are First, Sellersville Elementary, Upper Bucks Christian Academy, Faith Christian Academy’s Liberty Campus, Grandview Daycare, Faith Christian Academy, Schoolhouse Learning, and West Rockhill Elementary.  Firefighters from SFD had the privilege and honor to speak to over 100 teachers and 1,445 students at the aforementioned schools.

Topics that were taught to the students and teachers ranged from; Fire Safety tips, Stop Drop and Roll, Dressed up in our turnout gear, and talked to the 4th and 5th graders about peer pressures and different life situations they may encounter as they get older.  We also discussed in great length about the NFPA’s fire prevention message which was “Don’t Wait Check the Date.”  This message means and suggests you to replace smoke alarms (detectors) every 10 years. 

SFD’s annual Open House was held on Saturday October 22nd which ends our busy yet exciting month.  Even though Mother Nature was not on our side this year, we were still able to host our party and managed a crowd of over 500 people. This year guests included were, Grandview Medic 151, Perkasie Police, Pennridge Regional Police, Bucks County Fire Marshal’s Office, EDS, ServPro, Moyer’s, Pennridge FISH, and the Biker’s Against Child Abuse.

This year SFD and Moyer’s service put together a canned good raffle to benefit the Pennridge FISH organization.  We are proud to say that we donated over 500 pounds of food collected at the Open House to help assist Pennridge FISH!

We would like to thank our Fire Prevention Committee for their hard work in planning, organizing, and running the different fire prevention events this year.  We also would like to thank our supporters, that’s YOU our residents.  We look forward to Fire Prevention in October of 2017.





At 2115 hours, Station 27 was dispatched with Medic 151 for this accident on Bethlehem Pike in the area of Weikel Road in West Rockhill Township. While responding, BCR reported to Deputy 27 of possible entrapment in the 1 vehicle accident. Negative entrapment was found and the Department was available a short time later.




Congratulations to Michael Tomkinson, the SFD recipient of the 2016 Central Bucks Chamber of Commerce Emergency Service Award. “Bull”, as he is known by most of us, was our 2015 Firefighter of the Year.

Early this morning, Montgomery County units were dispatched for a large mulch fire at the 100 block of Cressman Road in Salford Township.

The Engine was at Tylersport’s Fire House for 3 hours filling 9 Tankers that came to be about 25,000 gallons.
