H.A.R.T. Training

June 13th

Yesterday members of Goodwill Fire Co, Station 18's water rescue team participated in an air mobility exercise with PA-HART (Helicopter Aquatic Rescue Team). The Station 18 team responded to Gilbert airstrip in West Manchester Twp., where they loaded a boat, motor and personnel onto a CH47 Chinook. Our team, along with members of PA-HART then flew to Fort Indiantown Gap where they were met by our water rescue vehicle and returned home.

Station 18 is proud to become the first VRSR team in Pennsylvania to participate in such an exercise.

Special thanks to our flight crew from the PA National Guard, they were great. Also thank you to Chief Nichols and West Manchester - Station 5 for providing fire coverage, and West York - MICU 1 for providing EMS coverage at the LZ and assistance with loading.
