Members of Company 5 hosted several Four Diamonds Families who were in town for the 2016 Penn State Dance Marathon taking place at the Bryce Jordan Center on campus this weekend. Families were shuttled to the downtown station on Engine 513, Truck 517, and Rescue 518 where they were treated to bucket truck rides, tours of the station and the apparatus, water games, and cookies. Each child got to try on bunker gear and take home a bag of Alpha Fire Company goodies as well as memories that will last a lifetime!
