This Thanksgiving, we want to remind you all to please be careful while you are cooking your Holiday meal.

Remember, if you are deep frying your turkey, make sure it is completely thawed and dry. Be sure to not over fill your oil, or overheat it. Carefully lower the turkey into the pot. Never leave the fryer unattended, and keep a fire extinguisher close by.

Always, keep the fryer away from your deck, homes, and never cook inside your house or garage.

Enjoy your families, stay safe.

08/15/2022: At approximately 0148 Hours, Ladder 2 was dispatched to 171 S. Enola Dr. in East Pennsboro Twp., Cumberland County, to assist with the 2nd Alarm Structure Fire. Upon arrival, the crew of L2 was assigned to the Bravo Exposure where fire had extended from the main fire building and into the walls and ceilings of the 1st and 2nd Floors of the Charlie/Delta corner. Efforts were complicated by hoarding conditions. The Crew of L2 was assisted by several other responding companies to include but not limited to YC R69 (DLA), PC 2 (Duncannon), and CC 12 (Lower Allen). L2 operated for approximately 2 1/2 hours before being released from the scene. L2 had also responded to this location approximately one week ago to assist with another fire.

02/16/2022: At approximately 1139 Hours, Squad 8, Tower 1, Wagon 4, Ladder 2, and Battalion Chief 4 were dispatched to the area of S. 17th St. and Paxton St. (Box 1-5) in “South Allison Hill” for a reported structure fire. Dispatch advised that they were receiving multiple calls as P. D. arrived on scene confirming a working fire to the rear of the 2 1/2 story duplex causing exposure problems. B/C 4 requested the 1st Alarm (Wagon 3, DC Tower 32, YC Rescue 69 (DLA), and CC Air 13). Due to a previous fire at this address leaving both sides of the duplex structurally unsound, defensive operations were initiated immediately on arrival. Wagon 4 led off with a blitz attack using their deck gun, knocking down the bulk of the fire. The aerial master stream from Tower 1 and hand lines from Squad 8 and Wagon 4 extinguished the remaining fire with minimal damage to neighboring exposures. Units operated for approximately 1 1/2 hours. The “C” Platoon working.
