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.

VES and RIT Training

Tonight Chief Murray led the crews through vent, enter, search (VES) and RIT training. Three stations were setup and the crew was split up through each of the stations. This training is some of the most basic and most important for rescuing people or firefighters that are trapped.

Busy Sunday night

Last night there were numerous calls including several with people trapped. It began around 10:30pm last night for a car over the guard rail in Bulter’s area (49 box). A single vehicle with one occupant landed on its roof over a guard rail and the driver was trapped inside.  Squad 414 and several other apparatus including Butler’s engine were assigned to the call. Squad 414 was the first suppression piece to arrive.  The crew from the squad stabilized the vehicle and helped to extricate the driver.  The driver was taken to a local area hospital with minimal injuries.

After this there was an electrical fire in Carroll County which the Engine and Squad were both alerted.  The Engine was cleared of the call but the Squad went up into Carroll County to assist on the call.  Shortly after the Squad was back in service at the station there was a water rescue box in which a vehicle crashed into a pond in Chestnut Ridge’s area (50 box). The Squad was alerted for this call along with dive teams and the USAR team from Station 17.  After this call there was another collision with entrapment in 41’s first due at the intersection of Route 30 and I795.  This was followed by a collision on I795 south bound. And then this morning the Engine was alerted for a dwelling fire in Liberty Road’s area (46 box).

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.
