The station recently was honored to be approached by Life Member Dan Poplaski’s son Andrew who asked to complete his Eagle Scout Project at Progress. Progress is thankful for Andrew’s hard work and dedication into this project and we all understand how much this project meant to Andrew as his grandfather was a LODD in Lebanon County, PA in 2017. Below are the words of Andrew about this project.
“My name is Andrew Poplaski from BSA Troop 77 here in Harrisburg. For the past year, I have been working towards completing one of my biggest goals in my life, becoming an Eagle Scout. For my entire scouting career, I have been working towards this goal. One of the requirements in becoming an Eagle Scout is to lead a service project in my community. The project I chose was to replace a 25 foot flagpole at the Progress Fire house and install a new 50 foot flag. This project was a long process. I started with a 25 foot flagpole and turned it into a 50 foot flagpole flying a 10 x 15 ft. flag. A lot of work, time, and effort went towards completing this project. I couldn’t do this without the support of the fire company. I would like to thank everyone from the Progress Fire Company that helped with the completion of the project. I too want to thank everyone from BSA Troop 77 that helped with the completion of the project. I would also like to thank L&N Zimmerman Excavation for the excavation of the hole, Boger Concrete Inc. for their donation of 8 yards of concrete, Lowe’s and Home Depot for the donation of plants that were planted around the pole, Nye’s for the donation of 3 scoops of tanbark, and to Giant Food Stores for the donation of the pavers that were used to cover the footer and to create a path way to the sidewalk. I know I couldn’t have done this myself. Being able to raise the American flag after this long past month means the world to me. I didn’t do this project just to become an eagle scout, I did it in honor of all fallen firefighters especially for the 343 firefighters that made the ultimate sacrifices on 9/11. Being the grandson of a fallen firefighter, the American flag has more meaning for me than symbolizing my freedom. It symbolizes the ultimate sacrifice that people made to give me my freedom and this opportunity to become an eagle scout. This is one of my greatest accomplishment not only in my scouting career, but the greatest in my life. Again, than you to everyone that helped throughout the process, it means everything to me you helped.” ... See MoreSee Less

So proud of you Andrew!! I bet your Mom is smiling ear to ear!!!❤️❤️
AJ! I’m so proud of you. This is incredible and shows the true characteristics who you are. Bravo!!! Love you!🙌🏽❤️👨🏻🚒🇺🇸🚒
My son and grandson are both Eagle Scouts. The dedication and commitment of scouting will serve you well throughout your life. My son retired from the United States Navy with 20 years of service; presently works for the Pennsylvania Fire Academy and is the Millersburg Fire Chief; my grandson is presently serving in the United States Navy aboard the USS Stethem DDG 63. Their scouting career continues to serve them well in every day life. Be very proud Andrew and congratulations on a job well done.
Thank you From Nyes Landscape Mulch Sales
Beautiful job!! Well done Andrew!!

The 2019 Progress Fire Live-In Academy video is completed and available for you to view. The Live-In Academy has been a tradition for over a decade and gives the new Live-Ins a chance to learn the operations of the Progress Fire Company focusing on the basic's of the Engine Company. During the week senior Live-In's and members also work on front seat rider development, Truck Class, and Driver's Training while working beside those new Live-Ins.
This year Progress was fortunate to have Township Commissioner Rebarchak spend an evening with us for dinner and attend an evening live fire session to see what Live-In Academy is all about and the training the volunteers were doing. We would like to Thank Commissioner Rebarchak for spending that evening with us and learning more about the Fire Service and what the Volunteers in Susquehanna Township offer the citizens and how we train.
Thank you again Shumaker Public Safety Center and HACC, Central Pennsylvania's Community College for the use of the facilities as well as H&S Towing Service, Inc. for coming through with cars at the last minute. Thank you to Rickey D Weese and Dustin Weese for spending the week with us and capturing all of the training through their lenses. Thank you to Mrs. Parsons, Amy, and Mrs. McCann for helping keep everyone hydrated, fed, and looking after everyone all week, it is much appreciated! Lastly Thank You to Jonathan Kibe for all of his footage captured during the week and putting together this video to share with our followers.
If you are interested in becoming a Live-In either now or next school year, we are always looking to hear from you, email Lt. Seeds at Liveinrequest@progressfire.com with your contact info and any questions you may have.

Were you there for this Thomas Iwancio? Isn’t this like the 2nd electrical fire in that building?
Just after 11am, Engine and Truck 32 were dispatched to a 37 Box for Smoke from an Apartment. Captain 37-1 arrived with an initial report of nothing showing but an odor of burnt food. Engine 32 arrived as the 2nd due Engine and secured Engine 37’s water supply with Truck 32 arriving as the 1st due Truck Company. As crews investigated and checked Apartments, smoke began to vent out of a 2nd floor window. Engine 32 and 37 crews forced entry into the apartment and Engine 32’s officer found a semi-responsive resident laying in the hallway experiencing a medical issue. Engine 32’s Can Man found a small fire on the stove and used his can to extinguish it while 37 had a line stretched to the door. Crews assisted the resident out of the home and a 37 member began medical treatment until the arrival of EMS. ... See MoreSee Less
