***Senior Member Front***
Last night at the monthly company meeting, Chief Wolford and Captain Linhart took a moment to announce the start of a new tradition at Progress. This new tradition will honor those senior members with 25 years of service that still actively have fire gear and respond on calls. Those members are presented with a silver leaf front with a “Senior Chauffeur/Firefighter” design. Last evening 3 of the members were present and received there front with the others receiving there’s this week.
The “senior member” is a valuable asset around the station administratively and operationally as many have previously served or still serve in elected positions and bring a wealth of knowledge and experience to the table. The “senior member” is often the one you find talking to the newer members about the pride and traditions within the Progress Fire Company. The “senior member” often is looked upon by current leadership for thoughts and opinions on matters within the company and is well respected by the members. The “senior member is one you value having around the station and appreciate what they have done to make Progress what Progress is today.
Thanks to Chase Bilinski and Chases Furnace Piece for the work.

Live-In Academy 2023 is in the books and as with tradition this week was spent stretching lines, stretching lines, and stretching them again. The week ended yesterday with a full day of incident responses for the members ranging from Gas Leaks, CO Incidents, Car Fires, and House Fires to bring together all of the skills they have been working on all week.
This is a long and demanding week for the members but has proven to be rewarding for our new and returning Live-Ins. This week isn’t possible without the dedication of the members who attend and the support staff of instructors/techs. This week really isn’t possible without the continued dedication of the ladies (see their own picture below) who come out everyday, spend all day and evening being our medical staff, keeping everyone hydrated, fed, and being our biggest supporters.
We also want to take a moment to highlight the juniors (Mitchel, Mason, Beckem, Nino, Collin - not pictured) for their hard work this week. These gentlemen showed a lot of pride and worked hard everyday and we are looking forward to watching them grow as members of Progress.
Thank you to Dustin Weese for coming out to capture the week with his camera work and we can’t wait to get all the pictures and another LIA video to be produced by AV Tech Kibe.
Saturday night isn’t the time anyone wants a rig to go out of service mechanical. Luckily for Susquehanna Township, we have Shop 84 (EVT Calhoun) to get Engine 32 back inservice with a new brake chamber.
