Come support Sam November 12th

Its hard to be a member of the Central PA fire service and not know Sam Keim Jr.. Sam has been a member of Rescue for over 30 years, a life member and former Chief of Dauphin Middle Paxton Fire company, and a career firefighter for DLA (New Cumberland Army depot) from which he retired. Sam is currently in the hospital recovering from a recent stroke and as you can imagine the road to recovery is long. Please join us in supporting Sam, November 12 from 9-5 at the Public Safety Building as Sam is trying to down size some of his personal collection of fire memorabilia to help off set the cost of some of his medical expenses.

Rescue Assists Cumberland County

This morning Cumberland county station 20 was hit out for a motor vehicle accident with entrapment. Upon arrival command called for our Rescue to respond to assist. Crews arrived and worked seamlessly together, working fast to extricate the heavily entrapped occupant. The patient upon extrication was transported to Life Lion and flown from the scene. Good job by all!

Working Structure Fire in the 3 Box Multiple Alarms

In the early evening of the 26th Dauphin county communications dispatched Box: 37-3 (4704 Laurel drive) in the mountain dale neighborhood for a reported house fire. Chief 37, Chief 84, Engine 31 / 37 / 38, Truck 32, Rescue 35 / 37, Tanker 35 / 37 / Cumberland 17 / 20.
Chief 37 went on scene with smoke showing. Engine 37 (5) arrived shortly after and stretched two handlines into division 1 and completed primary searches on division 2 (all negative).
This alarm quickly went to a full first alarm and then a second alarm (tankers only) due to not having any hydrants in the area.
Crews worked for over and hour before marking control. No firefighters or civilians were injured.

Thank you to standby companies and all the mutual aid companies for their response. In total units from Dauphin. Cumberland and Perry Counties all worked together to bring the fire under control. Thanks to Jason Coleman Cobb (Capital City Fire Photos) Dustin Weese, WJ Productions, and Mike Mihalo for photos and videos.
