2018 Open House

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.

Apartment Fire on Brookebury

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.

Two Extrications in the Past 12 Hours

Over the last 12 hours, S414 was on two MVCs where someone was trapped in the car. Early this morning in Butler’s area a car went off the road and hit a tree, trapping the driver in the vehicle. Units from 41, 56, 40, 17 and others extricated the patient.

Then later this morning a car went off the road just behind the fire station at Franklin and slid down the embankment. The driver was trapped in the vehicle and units from 41, 56, 19, and 18 extricated the driver from that vehicle.

Garrison House Fire

Around 10pm last night units along the 795 corridor, including S414, were dispatched for a house fire in Garrison’s area.  First arriving units had a working fire on the 2nd floor of a row home.  S414 assisted companies with opening up the roof and with overhaul.
