When it comes to fire safety and readiness, everyone's a winner! 

Emphasizing proactive incident response, local fire departments performed walkthroughs of the new Parx Casino Shippensburg recently. 

Casino officials welcomed three Shippensburg fire companies, Vigilant Hose Co., Cumberland Valley Hose Co., West End Fire & Rescue Co. and Shippensburg Area EMS to perform a walkthrough of the new Parx Casino in the old Lowe’s building located at 250 Conestoga Drive as part of their weekly training last Thursday. 

The building familiarization tour provided firefighters a showing of features, including the pump room, knox box location, outside sprinkler connection, mechanical room and what doors to use to gain access.     

For emergency responders, it is vital to know high hazard areas within buildings prior to an emergency occurring. 

Shippensburg Parx Casino Shippensburg is scheduled to open Feb. 3.
