Rescue Fire Company is located just north of Harriburg, Pennsylvania bordered to the west by the Susquehanna River. Our primary response district totals 4 square miles and includes residences, commercial structures, industrial complexes, 2 miles of river, and one of the largest highway interchanges in central Pennsylvania. We proudly serve a community of over 25,000 residents.
As the township's Heavy Rescue resource, we respond to a wide variety of calls. Fire supression is only the beginning. We spend hundreds of hours training in technical rescue tactics and specialize in advanced vehicle rescue, trench rescue, rope rescue, structural collapse, confined space, water rescue, and rapid intervention.

Rescue Fire Company was founded by residents of Susuquehanna Township and begain responding to emergencies from a small fire station on N. 6th Street.
As membership and responsibilities grew, the station on N. 6th street (Now called Station 1) was expanded to add a new bay for additional apparatus.

As the township expanded, Rescue Fire Company needed an additional presence east of the river in order to reduce response times. Susquehanna Township graciously allowed us to expand into a second station, located on Linglestown Road.
The top floor of Station 1 was completely renovated in order to add live-in quarters. A new day room, kitchen, bathroom, and bunk rooms were added to accommodate up to 4 live-in members.
With the support of the Township and community, Station 2 underwent a major renovation. An additional bay was added to house larger apparatus. The building was expanded out the back, making room for a new day room, kitchen, conference room, gym, training tower, offices, and bunk rooms for up to 4 live-in members.
