Flourtown’s Squad 6 was called at just before 3 AM on Monday, June 15th to relocate to Skippack Fire Company, to cover the local companies who were fighting a house fire. En-route, the Squad was diverted to the scene to assist.
It is with the deepest regret, and heavy hearts that Flourtown Fire Company announces the passing of Al Comly Sr. – May 31, 2011. Mr. Comly was a life active member of the fire company who marked his 70th year of service to the company in 2009. A former director of the company for many years – starting in 1948, Mr. Comly was instrumental in building a solid financial foundation for the company of which the fire company still benefits from today. His business acumen, respectful and gentlemanly manner will be missed by a company that owes so much to him and his family. For as long as many members can remember Mr. Comly and his family have sponsored dinner for the members following the December Company meeting, it was Mr. Comly’s way of thanking the company and its members for another year of service.
