On the evening of Monday, July 10, 2023, a significant gathering took place as members of a Modena Fire Company convened with distinguished guests to sign a contract for a new tanker.

The event was initiated by Chief Dowlin, who warmly welcomed the esteemed guests, including Mayor Mike Harvey, Council President Jen Daywalt, State Representative Dan Williams, and Senator Carolyn Comitta.

Chief Dowlin provided a succinct overview of the journey leading up to this momentous occasion.

The Chief also shared insights into the decision-making process that led to the selection of Midwest Fire as their partner, highlighting the advantages of this collaboration. However, an unexpected turn of events occurred when an emergency alert for a fire in Coatesville City interrupted the proceedings. The guests watched in awe as the crew swiftly donned their gear and vacated the premises to attend to their duty.

Once the initial flurry of activity subsided, Chief Dowlin resumed his address, detailing the specifications of the new truck to the remaining attendees.

In a touching gesture, Senator Comitta presented Jen Daywalt with a proclamation, acknowledging her significant contributions to the community, with the new tanker being just one of her many achievements.
