A few months ago Progress had the opportunity to have a meet and greet with MI Windows and Doors who moved corporate offices into our first due run area. Today Progress invited staff from MI Windows and Doors to our firehouse to show them around, get a closer look at the equipment and have lunch with the members. Today allowed us to give a local business a closer look at our operations as well as let them ask questions as it relates to firefighting.
Thank you to Mission BBQ Harrisburg for catering this event for us. ... See MoreSee Less

***2 Alarms in Steelton***
Last evening the Truck Company was dispatched to Steelton Boro for a house fire which involved 3 houses and eventually escalated to a 2nd alarm. Truck 32 arrived as the 2nd Due Truck Company and positioned on the Bravo End of the block splitting crews to search and open up in the fire building and work the roof. Command evacuated crews due to structural stability and Truck 32 operated defensively from the bucket with the master stream and opening up more of the roof area. The Truck crew also stretched an attack line to a nearby roof to assist with defensive operations.

***Senior Member Front***
Last night at the monthly company meeting, Chief Wolford and Captain Linhart took a moment to announce the start of a new tradition at Progress. This new tradition will honor those senior members with 25 years of service that still actively have fire gear and respond on calls. Those members are presented with a silver leaf front with a “Senior Chauffeur/Firefighter” design. Last evening 3 of the members were present and received there front with the others receiving there’s this week.
The “senior member” is a valuable asset around the station administratively and operationally as many have previously served or still serve in elected positions and bring a wealth of knowledge and experience to the table. The “senior member” is often the one you find talking to the newer members about the pride and traditions within the Progress Fire Company. The “senior member” often is looked upon by current leadership for thoughts and opinions on matters within the company and is well respected by the members. The “senior member is one you value having around the station and appreciate what they have done to make Progress what Progress is today.
Thanks to Chase Bilinski and Chases Furnace Piece for the work. ... See MoreSee Less
