“Last Alarm” – Oliver “Earnie” Wagner, Jr.

The Rescue Fire Company, of Susquehanna Township would like extend our deepest sympathies to the Wagner Family, with the passing of Oliver “Earnie” Wagner, Jr, today, a member since June of 1974.

Earnie was was an active member of Rescue 37, and throughout his career in the Fire Service,  held the positions of President, Vice President, Assistant Chief, Captain and was also was a Driver/Operator.  Earnie also headed up our Blood Bank, worked on the BBQ and spent countless hours at the Fire Museum of Harrisburg, showing what he loved, the fire service.

Earnie was also responsible for capturing much of Rescue Fire Company’s History, as he loved photography, and often was on the scene with a camera, recording the event.

Rest in Peace “Earnie”.
