To the editor: As a member of the Shamokin Fire Police (SFP), safety for our members, firefighters and the community is our top priority.

We are currently working on updating equipment, including communication systems, in order to develop a more fluent system to provide timely assistance as needed for any issues that arise during a call. We are also updating safety equipment and purchasing specialty items to help provide a safer perimeter for the firemen and women responding to the call, along with the community.
