Progress Report #13: Engine 59-1
Today, Company 59 received some more photos of the New Engine 59-1. The rig is nearly done and the inspection team from FDLS will be down later this week to check everything out. Once the new engine arrives in Pennsylvania it will be taken for minor work and tool mounting. The lettering will be done as well on the rig. Then the final step is training on the engine will start. This will be a great tool for our department to help serve the community of Lower Swatara Township along with mutual aid areas as well.
