For Immediate Public Release:          September 15, 2016


In light of ongoing events across the nation and in response to threats made against ALL emergency services personnel on a nationwide level, the Kutztown Fire Department has taken measures to protect our members.  One of these measures was the recent purchase of protective vests.  Our members will be wearing these vests when responding to all medical calls, calls of a high-risk nature, and other incidents where the wearing of the vests is deemed necessary for our members’ safety.

Some of these “high-risk” calls include anytime a weapon has been used in an assault or attack, as well as calls where illicit drugs are present and the potential for someone to be influenced by them exists.  There have been multiple incidents in our region where first responders have been attacked and injured while rendering aid to people who had used drugs and become unresponsive, unconscious, or nearly deceased; only to be revived and lash-out.  There have been other incidents where first responders have been summoned to provide care, only to be ambushed upon arriving on the scene.  So far, none of these have occurred here with us, but we will not wait until it does to take action.

Please do not be alarmed when you see our members arrive on a scene wearing these vests.  We are not police officers and we do not intend to portray them.  We are here to help all of you in your times of need and we all want to go home to our loving families afterwards.

This decision was not an easy one to be made by the chief officers.  We understand perceived impressions and strive to maintain that we are average members of the community that volunteer to help others in difficult times.  We do recognize, however, that the social atmosphere of this country has changed and is not going to return to the way it was anytime soon.  For that reason, we must do our best to ensure that we will be around for tomorrow’s times of need.

Thank you for your understanding of this matter and for your continued support of your local volunteers.
