Live Ins and Bunk In members were out getting breakfast in the Utility this morning when an accident with injuries was dispatched in the Borough. The Utility arrived quickly with the Rescue Engine w/4 (AC Gernert) arriving shortly after. Crews tended to a self-extricated patient until EMS arrival as well as controlled fluids and disconnected batteries. The Palmyra Volunteers returned available a short time later and the Utility crew returned to finish their meal. ... See moreSee less

The volunteers will kick off Memorial Day weekend (May 24 and 25) with an Engine Company Weekend.
Friday evening crews will depart for the training grounds for hose-line evolutions and then return for some classroom work late into the evening. Alarm clocks will be ringing as the sun comes up for a long day on Saturday where crews will participate in live-fire evolutions to demonstrate their proficiency in engine company operations.
Approximately 15 of the volunteers will be directly involved in this event to include the six probationary candidates. We have arranged for stand-by crews from mutual aid departments to help provide emergency response coverage on both days while the Palmyra Volunteers are out training.
The weekend will culminate with a department family dinner prepared by the wives of some of the members. We are very grateful for their support.
If you are looking for a way to help or support, we are looking for sponsors to offset the cost of food and rehab supplies for the duration of the weekend. Please call 717-838-1421 and select Option 1 if you are interested in sponsoring the event. ... See moreSee less
