Tonight at 11pm, Assistant Chief Canulli will end his last shift as OIC with Swatara Fire Rescue and will begin retirement. AC Canulli has dedicated his life to serving the citizens of Swatara Township. He joined the Rutherford Fire Company at the age of 16 years old and has held many positions within the company, leading up to Fire Chief. He was one of the first Assistant Chiefs in Swatara Fire Rescue. Joe has also served on the board of the Swatara Township Volunteer Firemen’s Association, the Swatara Township Firemen’s Relief Association, and the Dauphin County Firemen’s & Fire Chiefs Association. Joe has been an integral part of our community and our fire service for 42 years and we are so thankful to have had his experience, knowledge, and commitment. We are also extremely thankful to his wife, Kelly and his children and grandchildren who have so graciously shared him with us all these years.
Best of luck in retirement, Chief and we are looking forward to seeing you on emergency scenes for years to come!

Department of Health Provides Update on COVID-19, 37 New Positives, Bringing Statewide Total to 133

The Pennsylvania Department of Health today confirmed as of 12:00 AM, March 18, that there are 37 additional positive cases of COVID-19 reported, bringing the statewide total to 133. County-specific information and a statewide map are available here. All people are either in isolation at home or being treated at the hospital.

“Our reporting has shifted to a daily update at noon based on results reported to the department by 12:00 AM, as the volume of test results continue to increase,” Secretary of Health Dr. Rachel Levine said. “Pennsylvanians have a very important job right now: stay calm; stay home and stay safe. We have seen case counts continue to increase and the best way to prevent the spread of COVID-19 is stay home.”
Statewide, there are 133 cases of COVID-19 reported from commercial, hospital and state labs. There are 1,187 patients who have tested negative. With commercial labs being the primary testing option for most Pennsylvanians, data is not available on the total number of tests pending.
Statewide – The Wolf Administration:

• Announced mitigation efforts statewide.
• Provided guidance for essential and non-essential businesses on mitigation efforts.
• Closed all Pennsylvania k-12 schools with guidance provided.
• In accordance with the CDC, for the next 8 weeks, called on organizers (whether groups or individuals) to cancel or postpone in-person events that consist of 10 people or more throughout the United States.
• Encouraged religious leaders to exercise discretion in order to mitigate the spread of illness.
• Initiated a no-visitor policy at all State correctional facilities and nursing homes to ensure the safety of inmates, residents, staff and visitors.
• Restricted visitors in state centers to ensure health and safety for individuals with an intellectual disability.
• Restricted visitors in assisted living and personal care homes to minimize exposure to our seniors and individuals with disabilities.
The Wolf Administration stresses the role Pennsylvanians play in helping to reduce the spread of COVID-19:
• Wash your hands with soap and water for at least 20 seconds or use hand sanitizer if soap and water are not available.
• Cover any coughs or sneezes with your elbow, not your hands.
• Clean surfaces frequently.
• Stay home to avoid spreading COVID-19, especially if you are unwell.

Swatara Fire-Rescue Services would like to recognized the Chief of the Department Michael Ibberson for his most recent accomplishment of Chief Fire Officer designation.

In 2019 the Swatara Fire-Rescue Services Board and Officers instituted a six year training plan that its members and officers must meet minimum training standards to remain active within the department. The Chief of the Department had to meet the standard of Fire Officer IV. Chief Ibberson has shown his support by completing not only his Fire Officer series in 2019, but obtaining his CFO designation.

This is your true example of the highest ranking officer of our department leading by example to push the agenda of the department forward.

We'd also like to thank his family because they sacrifice their time with him to make his accomplishments possible.

We salute you Chief Ibberson!

Tonight, firefighters and officers attended the first training of the year, where they focused on basic engine company skills. Over the next few months members will complete basic engine, rescue and truck company skills. This will be a great refresher for senior members while preparing others to take the firefighter I and II test. #swatarafirerescue.
