LEBANON – Rep. Russ Diamond (R-Lebanon) will host his second annual Volunteer First Responder Appreciation Luncheon on Saturday, March 25, at 11:30 a.m. at the Schaefferstown Fire Company, West and Oak Streets in Schaefferstown.

“The outstanding men and women who serve in our volunteer fire and EMS companies in this area are among our best and brightest,” said Diamond. “This luncheon is a small way of saying thank you to them for their dedication to the residents of this area.”
The luncheon originated last year to honor the heroic efforts of first responders in the Interstate 78 multi-vehicle accident that occurred during a massive snowstorm on Feb. 13, 2016. Diamond said he wants to make this a yearly observance.

The event features a light lunch and a discussion of legislation that affects first responders in Pennsylvania.

Registration for the event is available at, or by calling the district office at (717) 277-2101. The deadline is Wednesday, March 22. At the time of registration, first responders are asked to indicate which company they serve.
