We received several new pieces of equipment over the last few weeks that were purchased through the Pa State Fire Commissioner's Office grant program. We upgraded our rope rescue rigging bags with new CMC RigTech packs and added a few new pieces of rope hardware.
We also added to Rescue 53's heavy rigging and stabilization/lifting capabilities. We received a Tractel TU-32 Griphoist with additional heavy rigging equipment and two Paratech Hydra-Fusion 16 Kits to complement our large cache of Paratech rescue struts. Twelve new pickets were also purchased too.
