Incidents for which we were dispatched (see Note 1)Hide

1905
Fire, Bueck Estate Property
Detail >>
Fire alarm sounded at 3 o'clock p.m. The company responded and found the fire at a property belonging to the Bueck Estate, the house at the rear of the lot, the eastern half occupied by John Buffington, and the western half occupied by the J.B. Club. Connections were made at the corner of South Second and Pine Streets and the corner of Main and Pine Streets. The fire originated in Mr. Buffington's kitchen, where the stove pipe passed through the tin roof, and was very difficult to get at. But, the company soon had the two streams playing on it, and the fire was soon under control. Damages were $125. Mr. Buffington's furniture was saved, as was that of the J.B. Club, but as the building was soaked with water, it was unfit for occupancy, and Mr. Buffington moved into John Gonder's new house on East Main Street.
2005
Structure Fire, UDA Middle School (Box 21-6)
Detail >>
Company-22 was dispatched for a report of a structure fire at the Upper Dauphin Area Middle School in Loyalton. Companies 21, 22, and 27 were dispatched. Chief-21 was advised on his response that the caller was now reporting that a tar pot, being used for renovations, was against one of the outside walls of the school and was on fire, but was believed to be out. Chief-21 placed Companies 22 and 27 in service, and held the box to Engine-21. Note: This was the last call dispatched for the Snorkel before being taken out of service and sold.
2009
Structure Fire, 3676 Back Road (Box 19-1)
Detail >>
Companies 19, 216, and Truck 22 dispatched to a structure fire at 3676 Back Road in Jefferson Township. Engine 19 arrived on scene and confirmed a well involved trailer fire, and requested the upgrade to the first alarm. This added Engine and Rescue 21, Engine 29-1, and a special call for Engine and Tanker 23 to the scene. Truck 22 responded with 5 and Chief 22-2 POV. The Truck arrived on scene to find a trailer with heavy smoke venting from the sides. Command gave the Truck crew the assignment of venting the roof, and a 8 x 8 hole was cut in the rear concrete addition to the trailer. After completing the cut, the crew assisted the other companies on scene with overhaul and pulling debris and metal siding from the trailer. Schuylkill Engine 650 (Muir) was relocated to Station 22, Perry Tanker 2 to Station 216, and Engine 37-1 (Susquehanna Township) and Lebanon Wagon 1 (Palmyra)to Station 29. Crew assisted until released by command.

Detail >>
On Friday night, August 24, 1934, an automobile occupied by Mr. and Mrs. William Frank, their son Paul, and Mrs. Clara Matter, stalled on the railroad tracks at a crossing on the outskirts of Millersburg. They abandoned the vehicle and ran for safety minutes before the arrival of a Pennsylvania Railroad passenger train, which demolished the car and threw it nearly fifty yards. Peculiarly, Frank's drivers license landed in the cabin of the locomotive.
