When is it Hummelstown Fire Department

Hershey Volunteer Fire CompanyA message from Chief Leonard

On March 30, 2021, the Hershey Fire Department and their mutual aid partners were dispatched to a working house fire with multiple exposure buildings either threatened or involved in fire. The efforts of those involved saved numerous structures and they got to witness numerous great things that come from a tragic situation. While the emergency services get a lot of press, it would be wrong not to talk about neighbors helping neighbors as they did yesterday.

Scott Reider and his son Colton live down the street from the fire scene. They along with another young man left their home to pick up a piece of heavy equipment. Their travels took them past the house on Old Hershey Road where the event took place. As they passed the home, they noticed a fire growing exponentially on the side porch of the home. As they exited their vehicle, neighbors were already calling 911 and reporting a person trapped in the home. Scott and Colton made their way into the kitchen through the side door and directly passed the fire that was raging on the porch. They were successful in rescuing the occupant and we are thankful that they were not injured. In the photograph associated with this message (captured by the young man riding with them) you can note the steps leading into the structure and how close they were to the fire. If not for their actions, we truly believe this would have been a fatal fire. While they are humble about their actions, they deserve being recognized for their heroism. As a side note, Colton is on leave from the Navy. We appreciate his service not only to his neighbor but his service to the country.

Unfortunately, I failed to get the names of the neighbor that opened up their house to the family that was affected by the fire. They gave a safe haven for the family to gather together, collect their thoughts and allowed access to the fire service as we conducted interviews away from the actual scene.

Parmer Metered Concrete is a business located along 743. The owners of the business made contact with the commanding officer very early into fire and advised them that they have the ability to fill tankers as needed. The closest water source (hydrant) for the area is on McCorkle Road in Derry Township. Their offer allowed us to set up two fill sites and not run out of water on the fire ground once the tanker shuttle got up and running.

A phone call to the owners at Parmer on Thursday morning created a partnership between Parmer and the fire service. They have provided the fire department with contact information for all hours of the day or night and advised us that they could be up and ready within 10 minutes of the phone call. While we greatly appreciate the partnership, we are hoping that we never need to use their services.

Thanks for taking time to read about some of the great things that happen behind the scenes that sometimes go unnoticed.
