Multiple entrapments on Hanover Pike

This morning two vehicles collided on Hanover Pike in Boring.  It originally came out as a rollover but was upgraded to a rescue box with entrapment.  Both vehicles had one trapped, Squad 414 worked on the vehicle that had one heavily entrapped and Special Unit 418 worked on the other vehicle. Engine 413, Engine 19, Engine 56 and Engine 422 all responded due to the type of collision and that a trooper was called. The GO team was called (including a physician) but was then cancelled.

Shed fire in Boring

Approximately 10:30pm last night Station 41 and surrounding stations were alerted for a Fire with Hazmat because of a shed fire with a vehicle and drums inside. Engine 412 arrived shortly after Engine 422 and setup an attack on the fire and exposure protection of a building immediately beside the fire.  Command decided to let the fire burn due to the significant destruction of the shed before arrival. Engine 412 and Squad 414 cleared 2 hours after arrival.

Fire Safety Detail at Glyndon Elementary

Reisterstown Volunteer Fire Company organized a fire safety demonstration for the kindergarten classes at Glyndon Elementary school.  They did well as they new what to do if their clothes caught on fire (stop, drop, and roll) and what to do if there was smoke in the house (get down low on the floor and move out of the house). They got to go through the engine and one of the teachers donned our bunker gear.
