Morning staffing crews had breakfast at the firehouse before clearing todays snow from the sidewalks and doorways. Afterwards, crews continued a tradition of taking care of members’ driveways who are working or require assistance with their snow.

Later in the day personnel enjoyed grilled cheese and tomato soup for lunch while settling a firehouse debate of which is better - butter or mayonnaise for grilled cheese.

Crews assisted EMS with a cardiac arrest before covering some in-house training topics and warming up.

Mayonnaise won in case you were wondering!

The snow has started, roads are slippery, and forecasts are all over the place in terms of total amount of snow.

One thing is for sure though, regardless of amount, it is important to clear hydrants on or around your property of snow so we can easily find and use them! The delay in not finding or being able to use a hydrant during a fire could be fatal.

Tower 33 is just returning from Elizabethtown Fire Dept Station 74 after operating on an upgraded alarm house fire. Initially dispatched as a cover assignment to station 74, while en route, the Tower was requested to the scene. Upon return to Dauphin County Tower 33 responded to a fire alarm in the Lower Swatara Fire Department 59 box due to being the closest Truck Co in proximity to the call.
