Swatara Fire-Rescue

On Tuesday October 27th, Swatara Fire Rescue firefighters were introduced to their new NFPA 1582 Firefighter Physical Benefit, provided by a partnership between UPMC and Swatara Township.

Firefighters will be provided with

Physical Examination, Blood Analysis, Urinalysis, Lab tests, Audiometric Testing, Visual Acuity Test, Pulmonary Function Test, Chest X-Ray (Due every 5 years), EKG, Stress Test, Cancer Screening, OSHA Respiratory Questionnaire.

After the benefit informational session, the UPMC doctors sought to understand first hand the stress that a firefighter undergoes in the course of his/her duties on an emergency response. They donned turnout gear and performed core firefighting skills with the assistance of STFR firefighters.

We’d like to thank the Swatara Township Board of Commissioners and our township residents for the unwavering support that has allowed this monumental program occur.

It is with a heavy heart that we announce the passing of Life Member Charlie Proudfoot. Charlie was a former trustee of the Swatara Company, and was the current President of the Goodwill Fire Co. of Enhaut, one of our founding companies.

Charlie, you will be missed on company meeting nights, as we all knew the meeting wasn't over until you made the motion to adjourn.

Godspeed, and rest easy friend.

Our thoughts and prayers are with our brothers at Progress Fire 32. Rest Easy Chief Mowry

The members of Progress regret to announce the passing of Assistant Chief (Retired) Charles (Charlie) Mowry. Charlie served Progress for many years back dating back to at least the 70’s. During Charlie’s later years he was a fixture around the table every Friday morning enjoying Coffee Time with the members and even catching a run or 2 on the Truck.

As details of the service are finalized, we will post the information here.

Happy Father's Day!  Enjoy your day fellas!
