Box Truck overturned on the Interstate

This morning units were dispatched for an overturned tractor trailer in Penn Twp. in the area of mile marker 34 north bound. Engine 49 arrived to find a box truck on its side up a steep embankment with the driver still inside. We removed the windshield to get the driver out and crews from Engine 147 and Squad 54 assisted with extracation of the patient and getting him into the Ambulance. Units cleared a short time later with miles of backlog on northbound I-81. Photos by Larry Davidson

Last evening Company 49 held its Company Picnic at North Newton Park. This is an informal evening for the company to show its appreciation for all the hard work and dedication that the company members put into fundraising throughout the year.  For August we had a great evening as far as weather and it was a nice evening to relax, play ball, use the play ground and socialize. Of course there was enough food to feed 3 times the amount of people in attendance. We wrapped up the evening by giving out some gift cards for door prizes and a special appreciation award to Cary Murray, owner of Walnut Bottom Signs for all his support for lettering our trucks and making banners for our annual fireman's fairs. He was presented with a New Yorker Helmet.
