Tiger’s Coming to Town


This week, Merion Country Club will be hosting the PGA’s finest golfers as world class talent competes on one of the U.S.’s most tradition rich golf courses. As thousands of golf fans descend upon Haverford Township, extra covered will be needed from the Police, Fire and EMS staff. Oakmont Fire Company will have the distinct honor of serving at the open and will be sending several fully staffed trucks to cover seven, sixteen hour days. The crews will man multiple posts on and off the course and a Joint Command Center has been constructed to facilitate extra communication between emergency services on site. This will not however take the company out of service as Oakmont will still be providing fire protection and rescue services as normal.
