The Rescue-Engine handled an afternoon roll over on Progress Ave. The call was initially sent with reported entrapment but units arrived to find everyone out of the vehicles with minor injuries.
Before clearing the scene took a few minutes to discuss extrication plans if there would have still been someone trapped. ... See MoreSee Less
Speed had to be a factor.
The Truck Company took in an afternoon Fire Alarm in a High Rise in Swatara Twp which was upgraded to a stove fire on the 4th floor. The Engine Companies from Swatara Fire-Rescue arrived and confirmed the fire was out with a smoke condition inside. Truck 32 arrived as the 1st due truck and assisted with ventilation.
Video from the lounge as the call was dropped, the Truck Company was on the street in under a minute with an additional crew staffing the Engine in station. Excuse the walls, as the lounge is undergoing a renovation and uplift.

A little fun for Tuesday evening training included dueling crosslays and bumper lines to make up push up the stairs to a simulated 2nd floor after masking up with gloves on. From starting at the pump panel to water flowing at the top of the stairs, it’s believed the fastest time was 55 seconds.
Who says training can’t included a little friendly fun competition to work on basic skills and being fast. When the public needs help, they expect us to be fast and proficient right? ... See MoreSee Less

The Truck and Engine Company just cleared a house fire in Paxtang Boro. Units were sent for a house on fire as a result of a domestic with the 911 center receiving multiple calls confirming a working fire. Truck 32 arrived as the 2nd due Truck and positioned to the rear with the crew laddering the building and performing searches as there was a report someone may still be inside. All searches were negatives. Engine 32-1 was sent as a replacement piece and arrived assuming 3rd due and laid a water supply to the rear.
