Crash on Westminster Pike

Late last night a call came in for a motor vehicle collision in the area of 795 and Westminster Pike. It was then upgraded to an ejection and then upgraded to multiple ejections. S414 and M415 arrived to find a vehicle with multiple patients that had crossed the median and collided with a tractor trailer. Three more ambulances, along with another engine and a medevac Trooper were requested. Units packaged the patients which were then transported by the ambulances and helicopter. S414 remained on-scene for approximately an hour to provide lighting for the BCo Crash Team.

40-5 Townhouse Fire

Today around lunch time E412 along with many other area units were alerted for a townhouse fire in Glyndon’s area.  E412 arrived to a townhouse with fire coming out of the roof.  A second alarm was requested due to the amount of fire and exposures.  Apparatus from many surrounding stations worked together to put the fire out.

Gene sustained critical injuries while performing a search on a dwelling fire April 24, 2013.  He succumbed to his injures on May 2, 2013 after an 8 day fight.  Gene was a 9 year member of our company and was a junior fire fighter for 2 years.

…five years and still missed by all.

Yearly Pump Test

Each year E412 and E413 must do a pump test through the county (as all engines). This is part of the National Fire Protection Agency standard  to ensure each engine is working to its peak efficiency.  Last night E412 was taken up to the pump test center.  Next week E413 will go as well.
