COMING SOON.....RESCUE 14
August 20th- Today
members of Company 14 travelled to Cumberland County to Upper
Allen Fire Department to sign paperwork to purchase our new
rescue. The apparatus committee has been working for a few
months on finding a new rescue to lighten the load on Special
Unit 14 and possibly replace our current engine rescue. After
trying to find a new unit in our budget the committee was made
aware of the unit from Upper Allen for sale. Members of Upper
Allen brought the
unit to Shade Gap and the decision was made to purchase it.
Ryder Graphics stripped the Upper Allen decals off and made new
ones for Shade Gap. The new unit will be known as Rescue 14 and
will be first out on all MVA's carrying most of our vehicle
rescue equipment. Rescue 14 is a 1992 Pierce Lance with a 500
gallon tank, 1500gpm pump and has a foam system. Members will be
working on mounting tools, driver training, radio installs and
other things before it is put into service. Our 1985 Pierce will
remain in front line service and will go back to Engine 14, set
up with firefighting equipment on it. Company 14 would like to
thank Ryder Graphics, Upper Allen Fire Department, and
Mechanicsburg Borough Fire Chief Larry Seagrist for their help
and assistance in buying this unit.
