***Overnight House Fire in the Township***
Last night just after midnight, Communications received a single call from a block away reporting a house on fire in 37’s first due sending Engine and Truck 32. The Police Department and Chief 84 arrived and confirmed an address and reported fire throughout the 2nd floor and possible entrapment.
Engine 32-1 (2nd due) arrived and secured 37’s water supply, while Engine 32 (3rd due) secured a second water source. The Truck Company (1st Due Truck) began searching and laddering the building as the Engine Companies from 37 and 32 stretched multiple hand lines and controlled the fire.
All searches were negative for any victims. Command marked control at the 20 minute mark and held the assignment to the resources on the scene. ... See MoreSee Less
I know the owner/resident. By sheer luck they were on vacation. They're OK, of course, but shaken and are trying to get a flight home asap.
Thank you so much for responding and searching. That front shot is of the master bedroom (to the right of the chimney) and they likely would have been in there since it started at night.
Ironically, I used to be an EMT and fire fighter. You always hope it never happens to you or yours. I'm just glad everyone is safe.
Thank you again for what you do.
Hope all safe. Great team work guys
A courageous group!
Stay safe and warm out there!
I’m moving to chambersburg
Job well done especially in such nasty weather!😇🇺🇸😁💖💙💜
Engine’s 32, 32-1, and the Tower currently headed to a 37 box for a house fire. The police department is on the scene with the 2nd floor on fire and possible entrapment. ... See MoreSee Less
Prayers! Be Safe!
They are our neighbors, praying the owners got out. Your crew has been working very fast to control the fire.
Be safe brothers
Tonight during the Regular Monthly Company Meeting, Chauffeur Mike Modica was presented a plaque from the company for his 40+ years of service to Progress during which time he served as a captain and Chairman of the Board.
Also during the meeting, Probationary Firefighters Lucas Fick and Derek Brindle were presented their Black Front’s. These 2 have worked very hard to complete their Probationary packets and get their FF 1 certification to get off of Probationary status. Side note, Derek Brindle is wearing some history with his Dad’s Front with his Grandfathers insert until his new front arrives.
Thank you to Remember it in Glass for the work on the plaque. ... See MoreSee Less

**Colonial Park Garage Fire**
The Engine Company and Chief 2 just cleaned up from an afternoon Garage Fire in Colonial Park’s First Due. Company 33 was originally dispatched for “the area of” Oak Park Rd for a Camper on Fire. Communications then began receiving calls that the back of the house was now on fire and sent additional units.
Engine 33 and Chief 33-1 arrived and confirmed the Camper had extended into an unattached Garage. Engine 32-1 arrived as the 3rd Due Engine Company and laid a supply line to Side C and stretched a line through the woods to assist Lower Paxton Units with Fire Attack and overhaul.
Friendly reminder to the public, please do not run over fire hose when it is laying in the street. Pictures below is the damage it can cause which can have major effects on saving lives and property and actually puts first responders lives in danger. ... See MoreSee Less
Running over supply line should get an attempted murder charge just my opinion
Running over deployed hose lines should not only result in a hefty fine of at least $500 but an automatic felony charge as well 😤😠🤬
Jamie... another RGO. Haha 😘
Lisa show Bert this is your picture
People are idiots at times! WHO does this??? Hefty fines should be involved !
Who would be that stupid 😡
The funny part of this comment section is iv seen engines in Lancaster county drive over charged 5 inch multiple times I have no clue what makes these people think it’s ok to do such things
Friendly reminder? That’s not how it works. It’s freakin illegal in Pennsylvania, and carries a $500 fine with three points. Fine them and then sue to replace the hose. Period.
Start charging them with attempted murder and bet ya they wont run over it anytime soon
People are really that dumb? Wow

***1st Due House Fire with People Trapped***
This morning just after 4am, Progress and Mutual Aid companies were dispatched to the 100-Block of Shell St (400 feet from the station) for smoke in a residence. Engine 32 and Engine 32-1 staffed with live-ins and other members who spent the night arrived quickly as the Police Department reported a working fire and 2 residents trapped on the front porch roof.
Engine 32 secured their own water and deployed their own ladder to rescue the residents from the porch roof while the line crew proceeded to the 1st floor and found the living room on fire. The crews from Engine 32-1 and the Truck completed the searches and deployed a back up line off Engine 32. Truck 34 positioned in the alley and assisted with overhaul and ventilation. The fire was contained to the room of origin.
At the 15 minute mark of the incident, Command marked control and scaled the incident back to units from Susquehanna Twp and Truck 34. ... See MoreSee Less

***Tower Runs Basement Fire in Paxtang***
This evening Dauphin County Communications sent the 40-1 Box (Paxtang Boro) for a report of smoke from the neighbors house.

Engine 40 (Paxtang) arrived and secured a water supply as the 1st due engine and Truck 32 positioned on Side A and assumed the 1st due Truck duties.
Crews made entry and found a moderate smoke condition throughout the house and found a fire in the basement. Units operated on scene for 2 hour before returning. ... See MoreSee Less

The Progress Fire Company is currently seeking motivated individuals to fill potential open spots in our Bunk Room as Live-In Firefighters. The Progress Fire Company operates an Engine, Rescue-Engine, and Tower Ladder responding to nearly 800 calls a year and historically 30 to 40 working fires a year. The Live-In program at Progress has been built on Pride and Tradition since 1978 and has had a high success rate with members becoming career firefighters throughout the United States. The Progress Fire Company is located less than 10 minutes away from HACC, Central Pennsylvania's Community College and the Shumaker Public Safety Center and 15 minutes from Penn State Harrisburg or Central Penn College. The first due area of Progress offers Live-Ins the experience of running incidents in a suburban setting just outside of Harrisburg City. Live-In Firefighters are entitled to the same rights as company members and have the chance over time to promote through the ranks of an Engineman, Truckman, Chauffeur, and many have become Officers.
The Progress Fire Company Live-In Program attracts not only college students, but also those coming to the area for employment purposes and have an interest in becoming a Live-In. If you are interested in this opportunity please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with your intentions (school or employment), contact info, and when you’d be looking to move in.

The members of Progress and Rescue Fire Company #37 dedicated their morning to assisting our Brothers and Sisters of the Susquehanna Township Police lay to rest one of their own. The following was taken from the Police Department’s social media announcing the passing of Lieutenant Robert “Bo” McCalister.
“The Susquehanna Township Police Department is saddened by the passing of our Hero, Lieutenant Robert “Bo” McCallister. Lieutenant McCallister served from 1975 to 2003. His service spanned four decades, and he served in numerous Investigative and Supervisory positions throughout his Career. In February of 1981, then Sergeant McCallister was shot in the line of duty during a Bank Robbery at the Fulton Bank along Nationwide Drive. It was a testament to Lieutenant McCallister’s character, resolve, and unwavering commitment to his family and fellow Officers that he battled back to duty and completed his career. Lieutenant McCallister was a mentor to many Officers through his four decade career. His service, leadership, and guidance will abide for decades to come for the members of the Susquehanna Township Police Department” ... See MoreSee Less
