Last night the Truck was sent to the city as part of the 2nd Alarm for a house fire with people trapped on the roof. City units arrived with the rear of a second floor on fire in the middle of a row and the police reporting an occupant jumped. Truck 32 arrived on side Charlie as city units were getting a quick knock on the bulk of the fire. The Truck crew laddered the front and rear of the building and then assisted with opening up the 2nd floor of the fire building.

The Engine Company just cleared an accident with Entrapment in Swatara Township on Interstate 283 in the area of Linda's Rd. Engine 32 was on Union Deposit Rd in the area of Interstate 83 when the call was dispatched and reported with heavy entrapment. Engine 32 requested to run the assignment and was granted permission. Crews from 49 arrived and found 1 tractor and trailer into the back of another which was hauling Tomatoes. Engine 32 crew arrived and assisted with extrication on the passenger side and also pulled a protection line. Good work by all the crews on an extended extrication.
While Engine 32 worked this call, the Tower was sent to Duncannon for a house fire but was cancelled while responding and a 3rd crew was staffed the station with the Rescue-Engine. ... See MoreSee Less

This afternoon the Engine and Tower were sent to a 37 Box for smoke from a house. While responding the police department arrived and corrected the address and had a smoke condition. Engine 32 arrived 1st due and reported smoke showing from a townhome and upgraded to the working fire assignment. The Tower arrived and assumed the 1st due Truck assignment. Crews from 32 and 37 found a dryer fire which was being held to the room of origin by the sprinkler system. Command held the incident to the Township Companies at the 15 minute mark. ...

Last evening during the regular company meeting, the Truck Company was dispatched to a shed fire on Fishing Creek Valley Rd in Middle Paxton Twp. While units were responding additional info advised the shed was attached the house and the house was on fire. Chief 38-2 advised of a working fire a few miles out and upgraded to the "First Alarm/Working Fire Dispatch" which added Rescue-Engine 32-1.
Engine 37, 38, and Truck 32 arrived with fire throughout the 1st and 2nd floors of the house. The Rescue-Engine arrived not far behind and preceded to assist first in companies with fire attack. Crews made an aggressive push and at 1 point had the bulk of the fire knocked down but initial water issues hampered the ability to get control. Crews eventually used the tower ladder to master stream the 2nd floor before going back for extensive overhaul.
A huge thank you to Hampden Township Volunteer FD and Elizabethtown Fire Dept Station 74 for covering the Progress first due.
Our thoughts and prayers are with the brother from Company 38 and his family as they lost everything in last nights fire.

The Progress Fire Company Live-In Academy 2017 (#LIA17) video is completed and online with a special thanks to Kibe for putting together this masterpiece. The members of Progress put in over 1300 man hours of training in a 6 day period. The week consist of bringing on board new Live-In Members and getting them up to speed on our Engine Company SOG's and expectations with a touch of Ladders and Vehicle Rescue. This week is also used to mold returning Live-Ins into a leadership role by placing them in the officer seat of the Engine Company to lead their company or in the drivers seat to work towards becoming Engine Company Chauffeurs.
This week has been a tradition for Progress for over 2 decades and would not be possible without the dedication from the members of the Progress Fire Company and our families. We have numerous members, family members, friends, and businesses who support this week with donating items graciously and dedicating a huge amount of time. These donations of items and time ensure 3 meals are prepared daily, members are hydrated, an onsite medical team is present during all training's, and the overall health and well being of everyone involved is monitored. The support the members receive is second to none and we say THANK YOU!
Last but not least, Progress extends a huge Thank You to the Shumaker Public Safety Center which is a part of the Harrisburg Area Community College and also River Drive Service Center Inc. for the use of the facilities year after year to train the members of Progress. ... See MoreSee Less

***Wagon Runs Linglestown House Fire***
Last night just after midnight, Engine 32 was dispatched as a replacement engine for the 1st Alarm (Working Fire) assignment for a house fire which was originally reported with someone trapped. Units from Linglestown and Paxtonia arrived and confirmed everyone was out of the house and had fire through out the basement and the first floor was compromised. Command quickly evacuated the units as conditions deteriorated rapidly. Engine 32 was told to report to Side Charlie where the crew encountered fire on the first floor. Crews from 32, 34, 35, and 36 made a push into the basement and 1st floor and had control of the incident at the 30 minute mark. 1st in crews and command made quick sound tactical decisions and reports from a 360 of the house easily kept any firefighters from getting injured last night as it was found the 1st floor had collapsed in multiple areas into the basement.
No photos at this time as the incident is under investigation. ... See MoreSee Less
