A view of our future

Yesterday, after our morning call, crews decided to wash and wax all the rigs. We took the time to place 37 units in locations “if” the new addition was complete. We even had some people stop by to get a tour of the station and apparatus. Last night EngineĀ 37 also assisted Linglestown Fire Company at their annual fireworks display.

The Public Safety Building addition will begin construction this month. Thanks again to all members, citizens and Commissioners in their belief in the project and Rescue Fire Company.

Lastly, As the holiday unfolds please remember to act responsibly at home, driving and on the water

During the Memorial Day Weekend, members of Rescue 37 were busy with a variety of Fire/Rescue Calls, ranging from Motorcycle Crashes, to Water Rescues. The company also was on standby for the city of Harrisburg, and was also dispatched to assist Company 32 with several reported Structure Fires.
