Last week Southside members had an opportunity to make a difference somewhere besides a fire scene.

One of our members had a family friend who has deep roots in the fire service that is currently residing at Milton S. Hershey Medical Center for treatment. Brad Pabody was the Fire Chief of Willingboro Fire Department, worked for the New Jersey Fire Service, and later worked for the U.S. Fire Administration at the National Fire Academyin Emmitsburg, Maryland.

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!

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.

Services for Sam will be held on at Hoover Funeral Home. You can find Sam’s full obituary here: obits.pennlive.com/obituaries/pennlive/obituary.aspx?n=samuel-mummert&pid=198234034&fhid=28178

Please keep the Mummert family and all of their extended family and friends in your thoughts and prayers.

***MAJOR ROAD CLOSURE BEGINS APRIL 14***

UPDATE: Delayed until April 14th

Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) will close both Exit 72 on-ramps (Mountain Road) to I-81 South in Lower Paxton Township for roughly 80 days.

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.

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

April 14th now

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

I Literally witnessed this when it happened. I was on UD and 3 cop cars were chasing this person and they lost control and smacked this pole, causing the transporter to explode.

The Southside firehouse would like to wish everyone a safe and happy Easter Holiday! ... See moreSee less

Last night Rescue 33 ran an accident with possible entrapment on I81 in Susquehanna Township. Rescue 33 was added while Progress Fire 32 and Rescue Fire Company #37 were assigned on another incident. The rescue arrived with Tower 32 to find one occupant still inside but not trapped. The rescue assisted Tower 32 until released by Chief 32-2. ... See moreSee less

Thank you👏👏👏🙏🙏🙏

Last night Lower Paxton Township Engine 33, Ladder 33, and Chief 33-1 ran the third box alarm in the first due area in 24 hours. Crews arrived to find and extinguish a small fire in the basement. Harrisburg Bureau of Fire Station #2- Kings Of The Hill Tower 1 assisted with ventilation and the box was quickly scaled back to Southside units and Tower 1.

During the fire, and likely caused by the hydrant being used on Byron Ave, a fire alarm was also received at Pep Boys on Jonestown Road. The alarm was investigated by Progress Fire 32 and Citizens Fire Company #1 of Penbrook who were staging with the secondary water supply for the basement fire.
