Today just prior to 1400hrs company 33, and engines 34 & 35 were dispatched for the house on fire with a jumper in the 33-6 box area. While Chief 33 was en route he requested the 1st alarm bringing the wagon from Progress. The wagon arrived second with good smoke showing from the first and second floor with E33 putting a line in service on Div 1 and was ordered to throw Truck 33's ladders and hold the rest of their manpower at the command post. After Chief 33-3 came out and did a face to face with Chief 33 the remainder of the wagon crew was granted permission to advance a second line to Div 2. The crew did so finding heavy smoke and moderate heat. The crew ventilated and checked for extension finding none. The wagon crew swapped out cylinders and reported to command for reassignment. The wagon was then released by command.

Progress is mourning the loss of Jerome "Tweet" Brady. Tweet started at Progress in the late 1980's and promoted to Lieutenant prior to accepting employment with the Myrtle Beach Fire and Rescue Department. Tweet then moved to the Horry County Fire/Rescue Department in South Carolina. Once there Tweet promoted to Captain. Tweet was also a state instructor in PA and SC and loved molding firemen. Tweet was a great ambassador for the fire service and impacted the careers and lives of numerous firemen. Our thoughts and prayers are with the family and friends of Tweet as well as the brothers in South Carolina. Rest easy Tweet, you will be missed but not forgotten.
