Carroll County Fire

Carroll County had a townhouse fire last night in which the rear of the building was fully involved upon their arrival. They quickly called for a second alarm in which E412 was requested based on our mutual aid agreement.  We arrived and aided crews with fire attack.  We were on scene for about an hour and helped pack up hoses for the first in companies.

Engine Training

Tonight two crews went out to Chatsworth Elementary school to do training on the engine.  Trained on pulling the attack line, setting up the blitz fire (high volume hose) and then ladder training.

Five Tractor Trailers Fully Involved

E412 and S414 were alerted for five tractor trailers on fire in Carroll County.  E412 arrived 3rd and pulled two handlines.  Crews were on scene for approximately 4 hours before the fire was fully extinguished and overhaul completed.

Brush Fire in Boring

On Saturday February 20th, Reisterstown assisted the Boring VFC with a brush fire on Old Hanover Road.  When units arrived they found a ground cover fire in a Alpaca pen. The crew from Engine 412 used one Compressed Air Foam hand to assist Engine 422 and Brush 428.

Engine Operations Training

Tonight we trained on engine operations.  We pulled two 1 3/4″ attack lines (first lines we would take into a house or building that is on fire) and practiced patterns against the building.  We then pulled the blitz fire (high water flow nozzle). And finally we went raised and lowered ladders against a 20′ building.  We have several new members and this type of training is great for them but is also great for the more seasoned members too.

Two vehicle collision with one person trapped

This morning there was a two vehicle collision with one person heavily trapped.  S414 along with many other units were dispatched to the scene in Chestnut Ridge’s area.  Engine 501 was first arriving and advised there was one person heavily trapped in the vehicle and requested a helicopter for transport to Shock Trauma once the patient was extricated.  Crews from Squad 414, Squad 322, Truck 404, Engine 19 and Engine 501 all worked together to gain access to the patient.  This required numerous tools off of Squad 414 and many people.  After about 15 minutes of work we were able to extricate the patient who was then taken by ambulance to the landing zone for the helicopter.
