***2 morning box alarms***
Engine 32 was dispatched around 5am to Colonial Park Fire Co. #1 first due for a kitchen fire. While units were responding the 911 center relayed that the occupant was trapped on his balcony. Engine 33 arrived and confirmed a working fire and located the occupant while running their attack line and requested Engine 32 to get a ladder. Engine 32 arrived as the 2nd due engine, crew split assisting 33 with their line, stretching a back up line, and the driver deploying the 24 ft ladder off Engine 32 to the balcony. Engine 33 reported the fire was knocked down and contained, at which time the occupant on the balcony was reluctant to climb down the ladder so the Engine 32 officer evacuated the resident through the apartment and outside. Truck 32 responded on the incident and arrived as the 2nd due truck and assisted with ventilation.
Just after returning to station, Engine 32-1 was sent to Marysville Fire Company first due in Perry County for a car fire endangering the house. Units arrived in the area all looking for the proper address which was eventually located back a lane and the fire was out. Engine 32-1 happened to be closest to the right address and stayed on scene to assist Company 6. ... See MoreSee Less

Engine goes left, Truck goes right…..
The Engine Company was dispatched for a kitchen fire in Colonial Park Fire Co. #1 first due on Beacon Dr (left out of the station). At the same time the Truck Company was dispatched to a fire alarm in Rescue Fire Company #37 first due (right out of the station).
Engine 32 arrived as the 2nd due Engine on the 33 box, to secure 33’s water supply. The incident address was incorrect and ended up being right beside Engine 32. Engine 32’s crew stretched a line and found a pan on the stove. Command quickly scaled back the incident to Company 32,33, and 34.
The Truck arrived at the fire alarm with Engine 37 and found a faulty alarm. ... See MoreSee Less
The Progress Fire Company is pleased to announce it has been awarded the FEMA Assistance to Firefighters Grant for the total of $320,000. This grant which was prepared by Lt. Linhart is a combined grant with Progress, Rescue Fire Company #37, and Dauphin - Middle Paxton Fire Company. This grant will allow these 3 companies to upgrade their aging mobile and portable radio equipment to some of the latest Motorola P25 Multi-Band mobiles and portables on the market. This in turn will allow in the future for these companies to have inter-operability with surrounding counties without relying on patches by Communication Centers.
Thank you to Lt. Linhart for all of his work on the project as well as our partners from K&C Communications, Capital Area Communications, and Motorola Solutions. ... See MoreSee Less
