Tonight Truck and Engine 88 were dispatched to the 200 Blk of Blue Raider Lane in Lower Swatara Twp for a structure fire. Both rigs were out the door within a minute of dispatch being advised a caller was in the area and could see smoke and flames from a house. Engine 59 arrived confirming the findings. Truck 88 (Chief Whitebread) and Engine 88 (D/C Fink) arrived with the truck crew going to work laddering the building and search. Engine 88 established a water supply and supplied Engine 59 with the crew pulling a second line from Engine 59. Squad 88 responded with additional manpower to assist.

Tonight we are asking for your support. We ask that anyone who is able, to compose an email or written letter of support and send them to the firehouse. Our department is in the process of trying to obtain State Gaming Grant funds in the amount of $675,000 to replace our fire engine.

Make it last for at least another Ten years and save fund for a New one. . A new truck equal a savings rate and fund s drives of over $ 35,000 a year for a new truck

As long as you don’t buy another KME I will put this post up via the bat signal! 😜

Done you guys/gals have always responded quickly, effecently, and with the utmost concern for our safety, thank you

Yes there are good people that give there time to go out for calls and I think that the a now engine to save the town

The fire fighters are quick to respond, whether it is a fire or river rescue. They also are great in helping out in the community with fund raisers,parades etc. They are a great bunch of dedicated people.

Support the firehouse and the fighters and write the letter or email to help get them the engine they need and deserve for risking their lives everyday to keep ours safe....u never know what could happen in the future or if u might need them....SUPPORT THE FIREMEN AND WRITE/EMAIL THE LETTER....πŸš’πŸš’πŸš’

Best of Luck, 88! You all earned it!

Yes these firefighters men & women are really fantastic firefighters, they sure go through a heck of a lot of training which. They don’t have a choice, they must go through all this training & so do all their officers go through a really much harder training, due to being in charge at the scenes. They are really great people for sure.

Go For It Guys I Know Engine 88 Is Old & Needs To Be Replaced I Hope You Guys Can Get A New Engine That Serve Our Community For Many Years To Come Ly God Bless.

You guys are 100%.

What should the letter say?

Good luck

Then the daylight brought a reported fire out in 59s first due then to an AFA in the first due then back out to the 59 local for an AFA. While returning from the 59 AFA Dauphin County dispatches a 55 box for the reported structure fire. Crews arrived to find a well involved mobile home. The truck crew completed searches and opening up for the engine company. ... See moreSee less

Thank you to all whom attended or sent condolences. It meant so much to us to have him honored in that way. He loved firefighting & being on the dive team. He was willing to help anyone he met.

Thank you so much for your support during such a difficult time. It really meant a lot to Ed’s family.

I am very very sorry to see you go, bet brother you sure will be in a very better place. Till I see you πŸ‘€ πŸ™ Amen πŸ™

Shortly before 08:00 this morning, Engine 88(A/C Gilday), responded with 4 personnel on the 54-1( Londonderry Fire Company) Box for a vehicle fire. Chief 54 arrived confirming a working car fire and Engine 88 arrived and deployed the front bumper line, making a quick knock on a well involved passenger compartment. Engines 88 and 54-1, as well as Chief 54 returned a short time later. ... See moreSee less

100% Volunteer

As you may or may not know, MVFD is a 100% VOLUNTEER department. Anytime spent at the station, on fire calls, or at training is on a volunteer basis from our dedicated members.

We are very lucky to have members with a wide variety of job experience. From bankers, mechanics, and hospital staff, to truck drivers, EMT’s, and municipal workers.

Our department is very proud of the hardworking and dedicated individuals that are members of our organization.

Here is a news clip showcasing Lt. Adam Scheetz at his full time job, rescuing an elderly man from a swift water emergency.

Strong work Lt.
