Busy Memorial Day Weekend

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.

Other companies that were dispatched to some of these calls, included STEMS, Company 38, Company 10, Company 32 and 31.

Here are just a few images from the weekend.

During the call on the Susquehanna River, Company 37 and Company 38 were able to rescue a few boaters that were caught on the river, as storms moved through the area. Once the call was complete, the members were able to take a minute and enjoy the sunset on the river.
