Welcome to the Progress Fire Company
Last evening Progress Fire played a softball game against Susquehanna Township Police to benefit the STPD K9 Program. The game included lots of laughs and a few jokes during the night and the police took the win 7-5 in a good game. As advertised, the Captain of the loosing time had to get into the “bite suit” for a K9 demonstration. Captain Wolford suited up and took 2 bites from the K9.
Thanks to everyone who came out and supported the STPD K9 program. We are already looking forward to a rematch in the fall.
Thanks to Big Daddy BBQ for coming down and providing food and Dustin Weese for the photos. ... See MoreSee Less

The Truck Company featured recently on the cover of this publication. The Central PA area is fortunate to have photographers interested in coming out to incidents in all weather and time of day to capture images.
Capital City Fire Photos is one of those photographers and has been around the Harrisburg Metro area since the early 2000’s. Coleman-Cobb as he’s know by to many has a website with all of the incidents he has photographed.
As always, if you are interested in becoming a live-in, we would like to hear from you as there are opportunities available, email email@example.com.Progress Truck 32 featured on the July 2022 cover of Fire Apparatus & Emergency Equipment magazine.
