Vehicle Extrication in Butler’s Area

Today we had a vehicle collision with people trapped in Butler’s area. S414 was dispatched to the call in order to aid apparatus on scene with extricating the patient.

Motor Vehicle Rescue on I-795

S414 was dispatched for a patient trapped in a vehicle on I-795 South bound.  Apparatus from Stations 41, 56, 31, 19, 18 and 32 worked to extricate the patient from the vehicle.

Extrication Training

Every so often we get some vehicles donated to the firehouse so we can do training on efficient methods of extricating patients out of vehicles.  Last night was one of those nights.  We had all the tools of the squad and practiced opening doors, cutting, removing the roof, removing the rear tail gate etc.

Autofire on I-795

Last night we were alerted, along with Engine 56 for an auto fire on the 795. The original call had it in the wrong location and it ended up being north bound just north of Owings Mills Blvd. The police reported the car was fully involved.

Carroll County Fire

Carroll County had a townhouse fire last night in which the rear of the building was fully involved upon their arrival. They quickly called for a second alarm in which E412 was requested based on our mutual aid agreement.  We arrived and aided crews with fire attack.  We were on scene for about an hour and helped pack up hoses for the first in companies.


Engine Training

Tonight two crews went out to Chatsworth Elementary school to do training on the engine.  Trained on pulling the attack line, setting up the blitz fire (high volume hose) and then ladder training.

Five Tractor Trailers Fully Involved

E412 and S414 were alerted for five tractor trailers on fire in Carroll County.  E412 arrived 3rd and pulled two handlines.  Crews were on scene for approximately 4 hours before the fire was fully extinguished and overhaul completed.
