Last night was warm and was one of the first rains we have had in weeks. This might have lead to the 3 rescue boxes that we had along with a 2nd alarm fire box in 46’s area. It all started around 9:30p last night with a call for S414 to assist on a rescue box up in Bulter’s area (Station 49). After this around midnight was a 2 alarm firebox in Liberty Roads area in which S414 and E412 responded. Crews were onscene for several hours and then back to the station. After a PI in 56’s area there was a rescue in Arcadia’s box area (Station 43) which both S414 and E412 responded. The evening was completed with another rescue box along Route 140 again with S414 and E412 responding along with other companies in the area.
