You guys are the best!! I live in Mechanicsburg and my mom lives in Colonial Park. She always gets her Christmas trees from you. They are awesome and we always have loved them. I used to get mine there too before I became allergic to real trees a couple years ago :-( this year she turned 82 and before this she could always run circles around me. She's had a couple Health setbacks this year and when she came to get her Christmas tree a week ago you guys brought it home for her and set it up inside. Thank you so much from Sandy Frantz and I. 🎄❤ Merry Christmas to you and your families!

Earlier tonight a firehouse humor post was made in jest about a magnet taken from the front of Rescue 33. The magnet was removed on the evening of October 5 during fall fest. We’re sure it was done in typical firehouse humor as was our post was.

No, we’re not looking to press charges.

Yes, another magnet was ordered.

Yes, other chiefs were asked about the location of the magnet.

No, we don’t plan on foaming any ramps.

We apologize if this post was taken too serious and caused heartache for surrounding companies.

Damn I was gonna come help if you foamed may or may not have some experience! On a serious note this day an age is a no fun zone

Many moons ago in the bureau O fire a certain Garfield with only 3 suction cups made his way around the world. Oh the many photos that would make their way to a particular skook address...Hawaii with hula girls, IAFF conventions and many many distant lands. So yes good fun can be had even in today’s fire service.

A lot of guilty consciences on the last post..

How did I miss the original post ☹️

❄️❄️❄️

Mark Bradnick Matthew Schue your guys need to read about the foaming part lol

Get some old rotgut protein foam and blanket the front of the station and the ramps

We found him! Santa just parked his sled and jumped on Ladder 33 for a ride over to the Friendship Center/ Lower Paxton Township Parks & Recreation in Lower Paxton Township! We asked for some gifts for Christmas including our final drawing of the new Seagrave Fire Apparatus 95’ Aerialscope! Hopefully he leaves it in our stocking! ... See moreSee less

Last evening, Southside crews ran the second fire in 24 hours. Crews were dispatched to the 3900 block of Jonestown Road for a report or a fire reported out. Engine, Ladder, Squad, and Traffic 33 responded. Engine 33 arrived with their own water and smoke blowing across Jonestown Road. Crews located a car fire on a lift in the auto shop with workers trying to actively extinguish it. Ladder 33 setup for roof operations but were waved off with fire contained to the car. Ventilation was provided to multiple businesses in the strip before units returned available.

This was the second fire in 24 hours following one early yesterday morning. During the day, the rescue company also handled an accident with one confined on Jonestown Road involving a car on its side.

Was this during business hours?

Thank you for all you do

Christmas came early at the Southside courtesy of Elkhart Brass and UPS who dropped off our standpipe kit.

The kit is a reinforced bag containing an elbow with a drain to connect to standpipes as well as the gate valve and pressure gauge to ensure hoselines in commercial building are flowing enough water to combat fires. Colonial Park is the densest area of Lower Paxton Township and has the most commercial, mid-rise, and high-rise buildings containing standpipes for fire attack.

Colonial Park Units just cleared a porch fire on Fresno Drive. At 350 this morning an alert neighbor saw a fire to the rear of his house and called 911. That alert neighbor and a fast response enabled the homeowner to return to their home after the fire with minor water and smoke damage to the interior. Units were assisted by Paxtonia 34 Fire Company and Linglestown Fire Company No. 1 - Station 35. The fire was extinguished with one line and some overhaul. ... See moreSee less

Yesterday on Thanksgiving, the Colonial Park Fire Company was dispatched to eight emergencies from 650 in the morning through 1030 in the evening. These calls ranged from fire alarms to wires down due to the wind, and brush fires. The last call at 1030 was a house fire in Forest Hills mutual aid to Linglestown Fire Company No. 1 - Station 35. That house fire went until 1AM this morning with 35 volunteers from Paxtonia 34 Fire Company, Progress Fire 32, Rescue Fire Company #37, Hershey Volunteer Fire Company, and West Hanover Fire.

On two dispatched occasions we required assistance from Paxtonia Fire due to low staffing. On holidays, our firehouse tends to be shorter staffed because of our volunteers who came to Lower Paxton Township from other areas of the state return home to see their families. The volunteers that were available spent the majority of their day making sure the everyone else had a safe holiday, stepping away from family, friends, and dinners to respond on emergencies eight times.

On Thanksgiving, we’re thankful for our volunteers in Lower Paxton that put the community ahead of everything to keep it safe - everyday and for free.
