*** Busy Weekend for the 30 Crew***

Once again, the July 4th holiday weekend proved to be a busy one for our volunteers! On Saturday July 4th around 2245 hrs, Harrisburg City units were dispatched to the area of 13th and Bailey St for a reported house fire. City companies arrived with a working fire to the rear. Moments later heavy fire engulfed the structure with fire spreading to 3 other houses. City command requested the 1st alarm. Engine 30 with a crew of 6 was dispatched for a outside fire in the 1-4 box when city command struck the 2nd alarm diverting the engine to the scene. Engine 30 crew was assigned to the exposure building with fire suppression and extensive overhaul. Engine 30 crew also assisted Harrisburg units with repacking supply line. Engine 30 remained on scene for over 3 hours before going available. Thank you once again to Engine 47-1 for covering our first due and helping with cleaning our tools!

This evening around 1620 hrs, Harrisburg city units were dispatched to a reported house fire on Logan St. while en-route, Dauphin communications advised of another house fire on Swatara St on the “hill” with rapid calls. Engine 30 along with other county units were dispatched to Swatara St along with City wagon 4. Engine 30 arrived laying a supply line from 20th and Kensington to the “C” side. Engine 30 crew pulled a third line off Squad 8 to the main fire building. Crews assisted with fire suppression and opening up. The engine remained on scene for 2 hours before returning.

About Us

Citizens Fire Company #1 of Penbrook was organized on March 29, 1906. This organization came about from a group of public-spirited citizens, who at this time recognized the vital need for fire protection for Penbrook. The first equipment of the fire company were two hand drawn chemical wagons. These were housed in a barn as there were no fire houses available for apparatus. The fire company currently operates a 2004 American LaFrance engine and a 1996 Freightliner/Darley Air Unit.

Penbrook Borough is roughly a 1.5 square mile area that borders Harrisburg City and Susquehanna Township. Penbrook Fire Company averages between 200-400 calls a year with around 30 of them being confirmed working fires. Penbrook Fire relies on its dedicated volunteers to answer calls for help, attend fundraisers, station maintenance, and other public events. We are a 100% Volunteer organization that always accepts new applications for membership. The fire company also runs mutual aid to Harrisburg City, Susquehanna Township, Paxtang Borough, Swatara Township, Lower Paxton Township, South Hanover Township and East Hanover Township.
