Dauntless Hook and Ladder is stationed in Selinsgrove, Pennsylvania. DH&L covers all of Selinsgrove Borough, and Penn Township, with mutual aid calls to all of Snyder County, as well as Union and Northumberland Counties. DH&L also is a partner with TASK FORCE 1 out of Northumberland County, which is a boat and diver rescue squad. We have, in the station, two boats, Boat 8-1 and Boat 8-2.
Truck 8-1 is the only Ladder Truck located on Snyder County’s East End, and provides mutual aid to Union and Northumberland County. DH&L has a racetrack rescue unit, for Selinsgrove Speedway, consisting of three pickup trucks equipped with rescue equipment as well as Rescue 8-1 as a standby *just in case*.
