HUMMELSTOWN, PA - On Satruday, September 9th, the members of the Hummelstown FD held a traditional housing for their 2023 Pierce Enforcer Ascendant ladder truck. Though Truck 46 was placed in service a few weeks earlier, the housing marked beginning of placing the truck company back into service after a year without a ladder truck.

At 1800 hours, almost as if it was scheduled, the rain began to fall as the ceremony moved inside. The ceremony started with a few key speakers including the Mayor, a PA State Represenative and concluded with line officers, and those on the build committee. As the events moved outside, the rain stopped and members of Hummelstown pushed the ladder into quarters followed by members of Middletown, Londonderry, Union Deposit, Highspire, and Hershey fire departments with the 2nd push; the 3rd and final push in was reserved for citizens of Hummelstown, and a local girl scout group.
