In Memoriam
"It is with the heaviest of hearts that the members and officers of the Milford Township Volunteer Fire Co. send our condolences and prayers to the family and friends of Todd Rummel. And to the Three Forks Fire Dept in Montana where Todd was currently Chief, for their loss." " Todd will be missed by all who knew him, but never forgotten" " May he rest in peace"

 Todd Allen Rummel Obituary - June 20, 2014 Todd Allen Rummel, 43 years old, of Three Forks, MT, died on June 19, 2014 while serving his community as the Volunteer Fire Chief of the Three Forks Fire Department. Todd was born on November 10, 1970 in Quakertown, PA to Allen and Barbara Rummel. Todd is survived by his parents, his sister Beth Rummel-Flaming, niece Jenna, nephew Max, aunts Beverly Ewer and Kim Rummel, and his girlfriend, the love of his life, Brandi Steward and her son Marshall. He valued his Montana family; Brenda Steward, Erin DeWitt, Sammie DeWitt, and numerous close friends. Todd was raised in Milford Township and graduated from Quakertown High School and from Upper Bucks County Technical School as an automotive mechanic in the class of 1989. Todd served his community throughout his life, first as a firefighting officer for the Milford Township Fire Department, and as a life member of the Haycock Fire Company. Todd served in a variety of roles including Dive Team Member, Quick Response Unit EMT, Lieutenant, Captain, Battalion Chief, and Deputy Chief. In 2006, Todd followed his heart and moved to Three Forks, MT. He began volunteering with the Three Forks Fire Department, becoming Fire Chief on May 6, 2014. Todd was employed as a mechanic at Farr Automotive in Bozeman.

On Todd’s last day, he was driving a fire engine down the street when he was flagged down by a young boy. Todd stopped the engine and invited the child and his father for a ride, demonstrating the lights and sirens. When they returned the boy and his dad were grinning non-stop, as was Todd. Todd will be remembered for his selfless attitude, for the passion with which he lived his life, and for his commitment to his community and cherished loved ones. He was a leader, a mentor, and most importantly, a role model for Brandi’s son Marshall with whom he had a special bond. Todd had a huge heart and was a friend to all he met.

The funeral service for Todd A. Rummel will be held at the Three Forks High School on Wednesday, June 25, 2014 at 2 pm. A formal emergency vehicle procession will precede the service starting at noon. Flowers may be sent to 13 E. Date Street, Three Forks, MT. Donations can be made In Memory of Todd Rummel at the Manhattan Bank in Three Forks.

Milford Township Fire department urge families to set your clocks ahead one hour and change batteries in your smoke detector so you don’t become a statistic. Other suggestions for households include replacing alarm batteries when they “chirp” (signaling a low battery), test smoke detectors monthly, develop a fire evacuation plan including at least two escape routes, have charged fire extinguishers installed in or near the kitchen, and perform a fire prevention “house cleaning” to eliminate fire hazards.

As a reminder, do these things every six (6) months when you reset your clocks:

Check and replace the batteries in your smoke and carbon monoxide (CO) alarms.

Replace any smoke alarms older than ten years. Replace any CO alarms older than five years.

Prepare a disaster supply kit for your house (water, food, flashlights, batteries, blankets).

Once you’ve created your home disaster kit, use the semi-annual time change to check its contents (including testing/replacing flashlight batteries).

It’s a good idea to carry a car-emergency kit in your car year-round, but be sure to add cold weather gear to your general car-emergency kit each fall. (Having a separate duffle/gear bag clearly marked “Cold Gear” specifically for your cold weather emergency gear makes it easy to add or take out of the car, seasonally.)

Check home and outbuilding storage areas for hazardous materials. Discard, properly, any which are outdated, no longer used, or in poor condition. Move any which are within reach of kids or pets.

Check and discard expired medications - those dates really DO have meaning some very common over-the-counter medications can cause serious problems due to change through aging.

Companies were dispatched to Heiter Rd for the report of a garage fire. BC57 (J. Carroll) went en route and received a report of a snowmobile inside the garage that was on fire. Additionally he also received that the fire was spreading to another garage which had vehicles parked inside of it. Upon arrival BC57 reported a 60 x 80 garage with smoke showing. Engine 57 responded and was given the orders to pull a hand line and make entry into the garage to fight the fire. Companies made a quick knock on the fire and were in service for about 4 hours. Thank you to mutual aid companies or Trumbauersville (58), Richland Township (56), Pennsburg (Montgomery 65), East Greenville ( Montgomery 38), Lower Milford (Lehigh 13). No injuries were reported.
