Our crew members had a busy weekend standing by for Elizabeth Boro V.F.C. at their station while they worked their Riverfest event on Friday and Saturday evenings. We assisted them on a CO call and a train vs vehicle accident while standing by. We also stood by the firework launch site during their fireworks display.

We are proud to have won the trophy for Best Appearing Light Engine for our SOV at their Riverfest parade..

Our station was dispatched along with Rescue 183 from Volunteer Fireman's Association of Liberty Borough and Rescue 139 from Elizabeth Boro V.F.C. for a hiker that fell down a ravine off Deer Lane in Lincoln and was unable to get out.

Great job by all units on scene.
