Heavy Rescue Training Event

Members from Rescue 37 attended a Heavy Rescue Exercise, hosted by West Hanover Fire Co. 36 and Triple K Fleet Services. Since many of the companies attending handle accidents on the Interstates, that run through our first due areas, the focus of the training involved 18 wheelers versus passenger vehicles. Crews from Linglestown, West Hanover, Rescue Fire Co., Hershey, Union Deposit and Maytown had an opportunity to work with variety of equipment carried on the attending rigs.

The members of Rescue Fire Company would like to extend their gratitude to West Hanover and Triple K for the invite and opportunity to further their skills.
