Ida Remnants Create Historic Flooding
September 1, 2021

As the remnants of Hurricane Ida moved through the region, the storm produced levels of flooding that many residents have not seen in their lifetime. Sellersville Fire Department volunteers stayed busy on Wednesday evening with many reported water rescues and reported dwelling fires, all while maintaining crowd control around the rushing flood waters. Several marine units from throughout the County ended up in Sellersville to assist with rescues and evacuations. The overwhelming amount of rainwater dealt our station a devastating blow, with over two feet of water through the entire building. Despite the mess, we remain ready to serve our friends and families in the Pennridge Community.

Our efforts on Wednesday night would not have been possible without our dedicated volunteers and the following agencies:
Bucks County Radio Room
Sellersville Boro Emergency Management
Bucks County Special Operations
Perkasie Fire Company
Haycock Fire Company
Newport Fire Company
Milford Fire Company
Hartsville Fire Company
Chalfont Fire Company
Delaware Valley Fire Company
Pennridge School District
And many others!
