Units from Progress just cleared an auto accident with 1 vehicle on its side on Interstate 81. Initially Engine 32 and 32-1 were sent to Interstate 81 Southbound in the area of Milemarker 69 for a Vehicle Fire. Additional Calls reported the vehicle overturned with entrapment and on fire but at a different mile marker.
Engine 32 stopped at Mile-marker 69 at the vehicle fire and found a disabled vehicle only. Engine 32-1 arrived at Mile-market 67.8 and found 1 vehicle with 2 occupants confined. Crews stabilized the vehicle and cut out the windshield to assist the occupants out.

The Engine just finished another morning of Fire Prevention with the 1st and 2nd grade students of Sara Lindemuth/Anna Carter Primary School. During our presentation we were surprised by students who were selected as “students of the month” and they presented the crew with Thank You cards and a treat. Another class presented the crew with Thank You cards they made.
The Staff and Parents of Sara Lindemuth/Anna Carter children should be very proud of their little ones for being on their best behavior this week!
If your child is at Sara Lindemuth/Anna Carter, ask them about their homework the firemen gave them! ... See MoreSee Less
The Engine Companies started the morning with 3 runs back to back. The first was an auto accident in the 3100-Block of Walnut St in the 30 Box Area. Given the location of the accident, Engine 32-1 and the Duty Officer responded and found the incident to have vehicles in both municipalities (Penbrook and Susquehanna Twp). Chief 40 was on scene and reported 3 vehicles including a school bus and no apparent injuries. The Police Department cleared Engine 32-1 which was then dispatched on the working fire assignment in Paxtonia. Engine 32-1 arrived and assisted Lower Paxton Units with a secondary search of the home and standing ready with a back up line.
While Lower Paxton Units and mutual aid companies operated there, Engine 32 with a 2nd crew handled a Fire Alarm at Noodles and Company. Engine 32 found 40 ppm CO outside the front doors. Crews investigated and found readings around 300 ppm in the kitchen and isolated the issue to a fryer. Rescue 46 was sent as a special service to assist with ventilation. ... See MoreSee Less

The membership would like to wish Matt Hartman and Brandon Mueller good luck as they venture off to start their Career Fire Academy this week. Hartman and Mueller have both been hired by Loudoun County Fire and Rescue in Virgina.
Hartman came to Progress the Summer of 2013 from Browndale, PA where he was a memeber with the Browndale Fire Department. Mueller came to Progress the Summer of 2016 from Ashland, PA where he was a member with the Ashland Fire Department. Both men were Live-Ins and worked their way up to be Truck Qualified.

Yesterday the Progress Fire Company hosted the semi-annual Alumni Reunion under the coordination of Matt "Lenny" Leonard. The reunion is a chance to get past and present members together under one roof for an evening of food, drinks, war stories, and laughs as well as get the Macks together with the newest additions to the fleet. During the evening there were door prizes and raffles as well as 2 special presentations.
The first presentation was made to Lorin Mock. Lorin was recognized as being one of the inaugural members of the Live-In Program at Progress back in January 1978.
The 2nd presentation brought everyone outside to the new 2018 Tower Ladder. Chief McCann presented a plaque to Chief Glenn McCoy who then with his family uncovered a plaque on the Tower dedicating the Tower to Chief McCoy. Chief McCoy has 30+ years of service to the Progress Fire Company starting in 1982, then becoming a junior officer in 1985, and a Chief Officer in 1988. Chief McCoy has served as the Chief of the Department for numerous years since 1988 and currently holds the position of Deputy Chief.
The night was a great success with many laughs, some Progress Trivia about the history of the department, and the playing of Dick "Pop Pop" Cray's 911 call for his chimney fire at his residence which included lines like "I know what to do" and "you didn't dispatch them yet, my minitor didn't go off". All past and present members took a moment for a picture with the new tower as well as all members that rode on the 2001 Tower took a group picture with it as it will soon be places Out Of Service. ...

That audio should be posted for posterity.
