On April 16, 2013, the School Board recognized the Lower Moreland Township Police Department under the Direction of Chief Peter Hasson, Huntingdon Valley Fire Co. #1 under the direction of Chief Ronald Herwig and Lower Moreland Township Emergency Management under the direction of Rich Worthington and Robert Scholly, Jr. The Board began by asking for a moment of silence for Captain Michael Goodwin of the Philadelphia Fire Department who lost his life in the line of duty on April 6th and for the victims of the Boston Marathon bombing.
The Police, Fire Company, and Emergency Management have been involved in our Safe Schools Committee for many years. This involvement means that they attend a monthly meeting for usually half a day, which represents a major commitment of their time. In between these monthly meetings, the departments are working with our building staffs to check our fire and emergency alarm systems and procedures to make sure they we are in compliance and following best practices. The departments are also there whenever we call with a question or concern. They are truly partners of the School District in every sense of the word.
So it is with deep gratitude that the Board of the Lower Moreland Township School District recognizes the departments with the Lion’s Pride Award.
