The Honesdale National Bank Foundation Supports Susquehanna Fire Department Members News October 12, 2021 The Honesdale National Bank Foundation supports the community with a $4,250 contribution to the Susquehanna Fire Department. The funds will specifically go towards the purchase of 27 Class II Fire Service Safety Harnesses. HNB President & CEO David Raven stated, “Supporting first responders in our community is extremely important, especially at times when we need them most.” He continued, “We are glad to support the Susquehanna Fire Department to support their purchase of new equipment to enhance their safety capabilities.” This purchase is in conjunction with the department’s recent purchase of a 2009 Sutphen SL 75 Aerial Ladder Truck. The newly purchased aerial is the first aerial in the department’s history, providing greater resources to meet its objectives: primarily fire suppression and rescue services. The new truck’s aerial ladder is 75′ allowing access to the upper floors of the many Main St. buildings, schools, hospital, and multi-family senior citizen and family apartment complexes. Susquehanna Fire Dept. Inc. is the primary organization responsible for Fire Protection, Rescue, and Emergency Medical Services for the residents and businesses of Susquehanna Borough, Oakland Borough, Lanesboro Borough, Oakland Township and Harmony Township.
