New Cumberland County Rigs...


Nothing important happened on this date in the Shippensburg area. With that being said, when I started the site I mentioned that it would not just be Shippensburg Fire but include Cumberland and Franklin Counties also. So for today I thought I would put up a couple new rigs in Cumberland County. I wanted to include the new Engine 45 (Friensdhip/Empire), Engine 123 (Upper Allen) and Chief 52's but I just never got around to photographing them yet.

The top photograph is from Monroe Twp. Co. 25, they recently placed into service a 2009 Dodge Charger, this car is very sharp looking and even more impressive with it's light package. The other rig Upper Frankford Twp. Co. 48's new rescue engine. The rig is a 2008 KME Predator, 6 man cab rescue engine. It is equipped with a 1750 GPM pump, 980 gallons of water a 20 gallon foam tank and a 9000 watt light tower. This past Saturday the company housed the rig.

Let me know what you think of doing this from time to time when there is no Shippensburg history to post.

Always like the pictures , even when you do have some history to post on SFD.

I really enjoy your history and photo's. I've always thought it would be nice if you could see fit to mention other Companies or include some of their photo's.

For the last person that commented, I am not sure I understand what you are saying. Are you saying you want me to do more of this type of post or calls that they responded to that had nothing to do with Shippensburg? Include some of their photos? If I understood what you were getting at I could provide a better answer and POSSIBLY acomodate you.
