Early this morning, shortly before 02:00 hours, units from Lower Paxton Township were alerted to the 33-61 box (Colonial Park) for a motorized vehicle accident with entrapment. Engine 34-1 responded within 2 minutes with 6 with Engine 34 following behind with an additional 6 members. Crews arrived on scene to find a single vehicle that had driven off the roadway, landing approximately 20 yards down a wooded embankment. One occupant was heavily entrapped. Our crews navigated difficult terrain and limited access points to successfully free the entrapped occupant. Once hoisted up the embankment, the patient was transferred to the care of South Central EMS. All 12 Paxtonia Fireman then retrieved their equipment and returned to service.

Where was this?
Good job my brothers n sisters , Fire Capt Louie Albert retired. :-})
Job Well Done Brothers! 👍🚒
33-61 box is that a new box?
At the beginning of 2020, we knew that we had a problem. Our problem was a lack of motivated individuals that wanted to wear the Paxtonia legacy on their shoulders. At that moment, our officers decided to change our vision and goals for the year. 2020 would be the year of recruitment and retention. This photo was taken on a random weeknight this week, 9 months after January. This is our riding assignment boards - 24 fireman staffing the house, ready and willing to serve their community.
We want to take this time and thank everyone that sacrifices their time to make our organization better.
Keep in mind, we’re still accepting new members! ... See MoreSee Less
We can easily fall into pitfalls of despair. It takes a strong and motivated team to pull you from the trenches, but identifying there is an issue is the first step. Strong work! Keep fighting the good fight! 💪

Wishing you a VERY SUCCESSFUL OUTCOME.
Effective immediately, Lieutenant Nicholas Kimmel and Truckman Ryan Murphy have been promoted to Driver/Operator on Truck 34. The Driver/Operator of Truck 34 has spent many years learning every facet of Tractor Drawn Aerial operations. Before Truck Driver Training begins, candidates must become driver/operator status on our engines, be a "Tillerman," and hold Truck Fronts.
