Today from 0800-1600 several members traveled to Mars Towing in Linglestown to take part in the 1st annual Rescue School. During past Live-in Academies we had a day of vehicle rescue but found it cut into the Engine Company fundamentals. This past year was all Engine Ops. And the three day Rescue School was added. Day One was all stabilization. Stay tuned for more! ... See MoreSee Less

Crews from Progress have kept steady over the weekend with incidents and trainings. Friday started with 2 responses for reported structure fires. Saturday the Rescue-Engine assisted Swatara Fire 91 with an accident with entrapment. Crews from multiple companies worked to free the trapped occupant of a pick up truck that was on its roof and down an embankment. Members on Saturday also took part in an aerial operations class hosted by Colonial Park Fire Co. #1.
Sunday started with a small fire in Colonial Park’s first due before members started the 2nd day of the Aerial class. Truck 32 traveled to assist Swatara Police Department and Fire/Rescue with their Hero 5K run. Numerous members also took part in running this 5K.
Monday started with a first due fire, crews from Progress found a fire in the wall of the first floor and made quick work of it with 1 hand line. Command quickly scaled the incident back to the units from Progress and Engine 33. While the incident was quickly contained, the Truck Chauffeur took the moment to check his position he had achieved as there were numerous trees and utility lines in the area. The Truck was positioned here at the start of the call and the parking brake was never released to “reposition” and as seen in the pictures, the Chauffeur’s positioning was spot on.
