***HERO THE PUPPY UPDATE***

Last Sunday we were called for an animal rescue in the borough. After hours of digging and not spotting the puppy on the camera, crews were unable to retrieve the puppy from the hole. Throughout this past week, Hero’s owner continued to throw food in the hole and see him periodically, but would run back in the hole before successfully catching him.

This afternoon/evening, our members with the assistance from the Dauphin County Heavy Animal Rescue Team and Penbrook PD we’re able to successfully locate and retrieve Hero the puppy from the hole after 5 hours of digging. Hero the puppy was reunited with his family. Hero the puppy is in good health, strong spirits and grateful to be out of the hole.

Thank you to all crews that assisted on this rescue!

**REUNITED** - 8/14/22 Thanks to our heroes from Penbrook. The police, fire department and animal control worked diligently for hours to get this pup from an underground hole to safety. He was down there for a week. He could get out but was too nervous and scared to do so.
They are all true heroes.

From owner: So they got down there with a camera about 3 feet deep. Realized the hole took a turn towards the right and found him towards the end of the hole. They dug another hole to make a new entry way and got him out. he was all the way under our neighbors deck so I appreciate how they got him out safely!!! They were here since 1:40pm and left at 6:30 !

About Us

Citizens Fire Company #1 of Penbrook was organized on March 29, 1906. This organization came about from a group of public-spirited citizens, who at this time recognized the vital need for fire protection for Penbrook. The first equipment of the fire company were two hand drawn chemical wagons. These were housed in a barn as there were no fire houses available for apparatus. The fire company currently operates a 2004 American LaFrance engine and a 1996 Freightliner/Darley Air Unit.

Penbrook Borough is roughly a 1.5 square mile area that borders Harrisburg City and Susquehanna Township. Penbrook Fire Company averages between 200-400 calls a year with around 30 of them being confirmed working fires. Penbrook Fire relies on its dedicated volunteers to answer calls for help, attend fundraisers, station maintenance, and other public events. We are a 100% Volunteer organization that always accepts new applications for membership. The fire company also runs mutual aid to Harrisburg City, Susquehanna Township, Paxtang Borough, Swatara Township, Lower Paxton Township, South Hanover Township and East Hanover Township.
