This little motto helps remind each of us every day as to why we do what we do.
We are often asked why there is a frog on our fire trucks. Many years ago several firefighters decided that we needed a mascot. Over the years he was called many things but in 2012 there was a contest to select a name. Robert Grudosky one of the firefighters that helped with developing the image submitted Elmer, respectively after the first Edinburg Township Fire Chief Elmer Smolk.Today a plaque hangs in the fire station lobby that reads:
WELCOME TO EDINBURG TOWNSHIP
He is strong and determined to keep moving forward
and not let anyone or anything stop him. He is caring and
giving. Elmer will never forget the reason why he is here.
TO PROTECT AND SERVE
THE RESIDENTS OF EDINBURG TOWNSHIP AND STRIVE TO
PROVIDE THE BEST IN EMERGENCY MEDICAL SERVICE AND
FIRE PROTECTION TO ALL.
