Tonight, RVFC got together with Station 56 to do engine operation training in our first due. We hooked up to the hydrant, pulled handlines, ran the blitz-fire (high flow nozzle), and deck gun.
E413 and other surrounding stations were alerted for a house fire in Franklin’s area (Station 56). E413 arrived with nothing evident but upgraded to smoke showing from the eaves. Crews pulled a handline and extinguished a small living room fire. Crews from 56, 19, 18 and 41 checked for extension and were able to remove a dog from the basement.
Units were dispatched for an MVC along Tufton Road with patient trapped. Units from Chestnut Ridge arrived to find a single car MVC off the road and with patient trapped. Chestnut Ridge’s firefighters were able to open up the door of the vehicle and crews extricated the patients who were then transported to local area hospitals (one was transported by the MSP Trooper helicopter).
We want to thank all those that came to the Open House this year. The weather almost held out but it was on the cool side. The public were able to see the Baltimore County Police helicopter, many apparatus from different departments and groups and an extrication demo.
E412 and E413 were alerted for a town house fire in Carroll County. It was upgraded to people trapped which brought apparatus from Carroll, Baltimore and York counties. E412 arrived 3rd and assisted crews extinguishing the fire. E413 arrived shortly after but was then released.
E412 was dispatched to a house fire in Carroll County yesterday afternoon. Crews arrived to a fully involved house fire. E412 assisted Carroll crews to extinguish the fire.
Last night around 7pm fire apparatus in our area were alerted to the reports of an apartment fire off Brookbury Ave. Engine 412 and S414 arrived shortly after E56 and found a small kitchen fire primarily in the stove. The fire was put out quickly and then crews removed the smoke from the apartment. Units were on-scene for approximately 45 minutes.
