On the first day of August 2020, your local volunteers at Paxtonia spent the daylight perfecting the art of vehicle rescue. The fine folks over at Municipal Emergency Services provided our members an in service training on all of our new rescue tools. Since Engine 34-1 is a brand new Light Duty Rescue Engine, it wouldn’t have been complete without a brand new cache of rescue equipment. Our members cut multiple vehicles to pieces on our own training grounds! Training continued throughout the day until each member was proficient with all of our new tools.
Engine 34-1 is now fully equipped with Hurst E-Draulic tools, Res-Q-Jack Struts, Junkyard Dog Struts, and various styles of chains / securing mechanisms to meet all vehicle rescue needs.

** Another Busy Day in Paxtonia **
Last evening Truck 34 performed a transfer assignment to Harrisburg City while the city units operated on a second alarm structure fire. During the transfer, Truck 34 and other mutual aid companies handled a brush fire within the city limits. Simultaneously, Engine 34-1 operated on a vehicle fire in West Hanover Township. While two crews worked in other municipalities, the volunteers of Paxtonia were able to keep our Engine staffed for any emergencies that may have arisen within our jurisdiction.

This past weekend, your dedicated volunteers at Paxtonia, spend the three day period abnormally busy with numerous scheduled events and emergencies. Over the course of the weekend, we averaged 10 fireman in house at all times. These guys spent the entire weekend running 10 emergency events, countless hours of in house training, and a “Live Fire” training event. Saturday, in the midsts of the heatwave, 18 members of our department - and a few from surrounding departments - had the opportunity to undergo realistic fire training scenarios in a vacant home in the township. If you happened to drive by the Sheetz on Allentown Boulevard on Saturday afternoon and saw a large ball of fire, fear not... that was us! ... See MoreSee Less
