Eureka Volunteer Fire Co. Has Officially
CANCELED the 2020 EUREKA CARNIVAL/PARADE
Eureka has officially decided to cancel the 2020 Eureka Carnival/Parade. As you can imagine this was a very hard decision to make. There are so many variables in putting on a successful and safe carnival and at this time we feel it’s not in the best interest of the community or our volunteers to have this event. This is a big loss of revenue for Eureka, so therefore we’re trying to hold more food truck events and other unique fund raisers to help offset the loss in revenue which so far in 2020 will be in excess of $40,000!
Eureka wants to say THANK YOU to everyone who has been coming out and supporting our fund raising efforts!!
Please continue to check our Facebook page for future updates and events!
WE APPRECIATE EVERYONE'S SUPPORT and COOPERATION!

Invisible Fence® Brand presented
Pet Oxygen Masks to Eureka
On December 30, 2019, members of the Invisible Fence® Brand presented Pet Oxygen Masks to the members of Eureka Fire & EMS Department in Stewartstown. After reaching out to receive these mask kits, Invisible Fence® donated two kits to Eureka so we can carry them on our ambulances to provide this life-saving service for pets in our community.
The two representatives, along with their pets, spent time showing us how the masks are used and how they are able to be cleaned and reused. They were very generous with the time they spent with us.
The Project Breathe™ program is free through Invisible Fence® and its website.
The company wants to let others know about this donation program designed to provide oxygen mask kits to fire departments and other first responders. Most people consider our pets our kids. Now we have a resource that can help save pets from fire and smoke inhalation. We would like to thank Invisible Fence® for providing this resource and the outreach that it does.
