Hose Test and Fireboxes

Station 41 had a busy night tonight.  We started out testing hose on the Engines as part of standard safety tests.  During our hose tests S414 and E412 handled a firebox in Glyndon’s area (which ended up being a light smoke from a lawnmower entering a house). About 30 minutes after returning to service S414 got a call for a local firebox in 56’s area.  We were arrived and staged and then was cleared.

Car hits a telephone pole on Main St.

Just after 11 am on May 16 we were dispatched for a motor vehicle accident on Main St at Stocksdale Rd. Upon arrival, crews found a vehicle into a pole. The pole was split in half with the top of the pole hanging above main street. Main St. remained closed late into the evening.



Dwelling Fire on St. Paul Ave.

Tonight at approximately 6:30p a firebox came out for dwelling fire on St Paul Ave in Glyndon.  Reisterstown’s Engine 412 and Squad 414 arrived shortly after Engine 401 and setup for a fire attack with a 1 3/4″ handline.  Two off the engine went the front door, through the house to keep the fire from spreading in the house.  The squad’s crew went to division 2 to open the walls up to stop fire getting into the house.  All crews remained on-scene for approximately 2 hours and then returned to service.

Ladder Training

While Engine 413 was at pump test, Engine 412, Rescue Squad 414 and Special Unit 418 went to a nearby complex for ladder training.
