Tonight the Reisterstown crew did rope rescue training (z-rig, pig rig, packaging the patient, etc).
Tuesday night is training night for the juniors. Tonight’s training was donning gear. The goal is to have the gear on in one minute and to have the breathing apparatus on in another minute. For now the goal is to get it on properly, first, and then work on speed.
E412 and E401 respond to a fully involved auto fire just off of Chatsworth Ave. The neighbors were on scene with garden hoses until fire department personnel arrived and put it out.
Several Baltimore County apparatus were requested on mutual aid to a Carroll County box in Gamber’s area. Engine 412 and Squad 414 both responded and Engine 412 arrived as fourth engine in. Engine 412 pulled a line off of Gamber’s engine and took it inside to fight the fire. Units were on scene for approximately two hours.
Earlier today a collision was called in right near Camp Fretterd on Route 30. Squad 414 and IV415 responded on the call. Two vehicles were found in the ditch. Patients self extricated but were transported to hospital. Hazmat 114 was called due to fuel leaking in the ditch from the van. Reisterstown would like to thank those at Camp Fretterd who came out to help with the accident and patient care.
