The community member had nothing but positive comments about Zach and his interactions with the family during the tour. We would like to commend Zach on his behavior, positive actions, and professionalism that he displayed. As a small token of our appreciation we awared Zach with a $20.00 Sheetz card. Keep up the good work Zach and we would also like to thank the other members that perform these acts on a daily basis. ... See moreSee less

A critique of last week’s Technical Rescue was presented by Annville-Cleona Fire District at Palmyra Fire this evening.

All involved were very pleased on how this low frequency event was handled and how different agencies and departments came together to promptly execute a plan.

Discussions were had on other possible techniques, resources, and back-up plans.

A very productive and proactive critique.
