Engine 22 responded with 6, and on arrival, was assigned to assist with laddering the building and horizontal ventilation.

Engine 24 was relocated to Station 21, and Schuylkill Engine/Rescue 650 was relocated to Station 22. Company 38 relocated to Station 23.

During this event, additional fire calls were dispatched in Gratz, Berrysburg, and Halifax as a result of the lightning storm in the area.

Notes

1.The section of calls we've responded to has been compiled from fire company records, newspapers, and other sources. Listings for years prior to 1981 might be incomplete.
2.The listing of local incidents is for incidents that happened around our local area, including some from Lykens for which the fire company was not dispatched. It is certainly not a complete listing, and is not intended to be. It is included here for your entertainment. Incidents listed here have been gathered from public sources.
3.The listing of other noteworthy incidents includes incidents from anywhere outside our local area (for which we were not dispatched). Also included in this section are historical events from our fire company, Lykens, or around the world. It is certainly not a complete listing, and is not intended to be. It is included here for your entertainment. Incidents and events listed here have been gathered from public sources.
4.These lists can be filtered. Use the control section above to activate or de-activate filtering. Filtering will not affect the list of incidents we've responded to. But, it will be applied to both the other lists.
