New Equipment Added to Rescue 59
Today, the Lower Swatara Fire Department added a new tool to the arsenal of tools on Rescue 59. Due to the ever changing environment that the fire service comes in contact with, company 59 felt it should keep up to date with the various materials and strength that are seen in everyday vehicles.

The company put into service the Amkus-22 Cutter with a cutting force of 200,807 lbs. This tool will accompany the many changes Lower Swatara Fire Department has coming in the near furture with the addition to a new Engine and Rescue in the coming year.
