HOSE DONATION MADE TO POTTER COUNTY

     

Sunday, August 27, 2017 The Millersburg Fire Company recently donated used fire hose to Potter County for distribution to the Germania and Kettle Creek Fire Company's. Millersburg applied for and received a Dauphin County Gaming Grant and a Office of the State Fire Commissioner Grant last year and replaced all 2 1/2", 3" and 5" fire hose and placed adapters on all the Millersburg Water Authority fire hydrants in the borough and Upper Paxton Township. This was done to convert the fire company to National Standard Thread. The fire hose that was removed from service was still serviceable and the fire company decided to work with the PEMA Central Area Office and the Office of the State Fire Commissioner to determine if there was any departments in need of the removed hose and adapters. Potter County indicated that they would take it for distribution. On August 27th Glenn Dunn from Potter County EMA brought a truck and trailer to Millersburg and members of Millersburg loaded approximately 3000 feet of hose and adapters.
