Odor of Natural Gas……….units were dispatched to a first due address at a shopping center for an Odor of Natural Gas. Units arrived to find an odor of Gasoline and investigated the neighboring business and found one cleaning their floors with gasoline.
We feel it’s highly important to take a moment and suggest that this is not an acceptable use of gasoline inside of a business, especially when paired with a mop and bucket. ... See MoreSee Less
Well I mean, people are cooking chicken in NyQuil right now. So I’m not surprised to see this.
When I was a young buck fire fighter there was a fire at My Brothers Pizza directly across the street from station 14 in Fairfax. I think 3 died from injuries after removing adhesive from the floor with gasoline.
I worked at a Paramedic station in the 90's that had painted floors. The paint had to be removed, so the company that got the job was using gasoline to clean the floor. I went outside to access the water heater, turned it off and we went on radio. We notified our command and dispatch of the situation. Another company finished the job.
Gasoline cleans the floor really well. It leaves a nice finish that is absolute fire! 🤪
Used to work great on the shop floor to clean up oil and grease. Especially before it got super expensive
Maybe they were going for scorched earth clean
Did the people doing the mopping get a big headache
I grew up in the city, neighbors use to do this to keep the roaches away!
Expensive cleaner. And clean up I suppose.
They were probably planning something
Many, many years someone in Georgetown tried the same stunt, he was found in the front yard, putting off a lot of smoke🤣
Michael Thomas , 2nd thing found on the internet in one day that makes you blink twice
This is why I have a job
Aaron Nugent I know I asked you to do the floors, but maybe not use this method!
Bobby Senn Ray Seeley Nick Briganti did this and blew up the garage back in the day..
Scott Cristee 😂😂😂
Can't fix Stupid
That's an expensive way to clean a floor these days 😆
Common sense is so uncommon 😂😭
When natural selection misses an opportunity.
Almost a job……
Can't fix stupid!!!

****In-Station Crews = Fast Response Times***
Earlier this week units from Susquehanna Township were dispatched to a Structure Fire in the township during the overnight hours when most volunteers are at home in their own beds sleeping. On this night, crews from the 2 companies in Susquehanna Township (Progress and Rescue Fire Company #37) had in-station crews comprised of Live-In Members and others who dedicate time to bunk-in (spend the night) at the firehouse. The significance of this to our township residents is that Progress and Rescue placed 3 pieces of apparatus responding and on the scene of this incident within 8 minutes from the time of dispatch. Those 3 pieces of apparatus were 100% staffed by in-house crews (not having to wait for anyone to come from their home) and provided a total of 14 firefighters to respond quickly to this incident. The in-house crews by the Township Companies allows for faster responses which increases the chances to save lives and property during an emergency.
We highly value our live-in members as well as those members who dedicate time to be in the station and ready to respond to incidents all hours of the day. Pictured are the crews from Rescue and Progress that were in-station when the call was dispatched.
If this is something you are interested in, we are always seeking new live-in members and members in general. If you are interested in exploring options to become a member of the Progress Fire Company, email Liveinrequest@progressfire.com and if you are interested in the Rescue Fire Company email firstname.lastname@example.org. ...

**37 House Fire**
Overnight units were dispatched to box 37-31(Non-Hydrant Area) for a report of smoke in a house. Engine 37-1 Rescue Fire Company #37 arrived and laid a supply line to Side A and stretched a line with smoke showing. Truck 32 and Tanker 37 committed up the lane with Engine 32 preparing for a dump site for rural water supply.
Engine 37-1 found fire in the floor joist between the 1st and 2nd floor. Crews from the township along with Lower Paxton Fire, Swatara Fire-Rescue, Northeast Fire & Rescue, Dauphin - Middle Paxton Fire Company, and Citizens Fire Company #1 of Penbrook worked for several hours overhauling the area to ensure the fire was out.
Thanks to Lower Allen Fire Company No. 1 for transferring over to Progress. ... See MoreSee Less
