This afternoon A405 came across a truck flipped over with someone trapped inside on Route 140 towards Westminster. Numerous apparatus from Baltimore County and Carroll County including S414 were dispatched on the call.
Crews worked for approximately an hour to extricate the patient trapped in the vehicle. And a State Trooper helicopter was used to transport the patient to the hospital.
Last night E413 along with other surrounding apparatus were alerted for a garage fire in Station 56’s area. E56 arrived to fire showing from a detached garage. E413 assisted with fire attack and overhaul. Units were on scene for approximately an hour.
It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Life Member Henry Eckhardt Jr. He passed away yesterday from cancer.
Henry joined the Reisterstown Volunteer Fire Company in 1983 and has given of his time in many capacities around the fire station. As well, he has regularly been in the top 10 (and for most recent years the busiest) suppression riding member.
Funeral is Saturday December 11th at 10:30 at Eckhardt’s on Reisterestown Road.
Viewings are December 10th 2pm – 4pm and 6pm – 8pm.
Early this morning S414 was alerted for a car that had gone off the road and down an embankment. Station 50 arrived first and confirmed that one person was trapped in the vehicle. S414 setup the side winch to stabilize the vehicle and removed the door to extricate the patient.
This morning E412, E413, S414, SU418, U419 and M415 participated in the Reisterstown parade. There were many, many people out this year and it was great to see.
This year the parade coincided with the 9/11 Memorial Stair climb at the M&T Bank Stadium here in Baltimore. Six of our members participated in the stair climb this year. We are very proud of their participation.
It was 20 years ago that 343 firefighters died serving others. Unfortunately, there are many, many more who have died since from cancer and related issues from the attack. We continue to remember all those who have given their lives…
