Harris Hill New Rescue 5
Thursday, June 16th, 2022

We are excited to announce we have finalized an order for a new rescue truck with 4 Guys Fire Trucks of Meyersdale, Pennsylvania. This truck will replace our current rescue truck which is 22 years old. The new vehicle offers a variety of improvements, including enhanced safety features that will provide better protection for the firefighters seated in the truck. The rescue truck is primarily used for responses to car accidents, elevator entrapments, water rescues and mutual aid calls to neighboring fire departments. It is also used as a support vehicle at fire scenes and will carry a variety of modernized firefighting equipment, including a CAFS enforcer foam cell. We are sincerely appreciative of the hard work and dedication of the members of our truck committee, who researched and designed this vehicle, which will provide decades of service to our community.
