Last week was Brad and Eileen’s 33rd wedding anniversary, and members were able to take Tower 33 and some 33 members with signs to help them celebrate their 33rd wedding anniversary.
Congratulations Brad and Eileeen on your 33rd wedding anniversary and we were glad to be able to help a member’s family friend make it a little extra special while away from home! We wish you the best on treatment and recovery and were honored to be asked to be part of your special day! ... See moreSee less
We regret to announce the untimely passing of Life Member Samuel B. Mummert Jr. Sam was killed in a car accident on the George Wade Bridge on March 26th. Many of our newer members may never have met Sam or only had the opportunity to meet him at a banquet, but he was an active Firefighter who followed in his father’s footsteps who was also a member.
Sam owned his own plumbing business and rumor has it, was one of the best softball players the Southside ever had, with his height allowing him to make it to first base in just a couple steps.
Congratulations to Live-in FF Dylan Ryan on his hiring at the ArcelorMittal Steel Mill Fire Department in Steelton this week!

The closure is needed to allow a contractor to do drainage and sound wall construction in the area as part of the interstate widening project.
The ramps will close tomorrow April 6 at 9PM until completion but estimated at 80 days. Motorists can use alternate routes including going north to Exit 77 to turn and go south or take Jonestown road to get on I83 at exit 50. ... See moreSee less
It appears it’s been delayed until April 14th now.
I may be ignorant but what is the purpose of the walls? My understanding is that they are for noise reduction. Is it really necessary in that area? I think all the walls on 83 are overkill. But like I said, I could be wrong.
I just passed the signs and it appears they have delayed it until 4/14
Pennlive reported it’s now not closing until next week
Early Easter morning, Southside units received reports of an accident with injuries on Union Deposit Road. While responding, crews also received an alert for a fire alarm on the same block of Union Deposit Road. Paxtonia 34 Fire Company was sent to handle the fire alarm likely as a result of the power outage. Rescue 33 arrived to find one vehicle through an electric pole and the local area without power. The road was closed by Southside Fire Police as well as mutual aid from Linglestown Volunteer Fire Company No. 1 - Station 35. ... See moreSee less
