Engine Training

Last night E412 and E413 went out to train on pumping the engine and handline operations. We have several members who recently finished classes and so took them out to go over our engines specifically. We hooked up to the hydrant, pulled an attack line, flowed the deck gun and had one engine pump the second engine.

Apartment Fire on Straw Hat Road

At around 1800hours E412 responded with surrounding stations for a reported apartment fire. First arriving units reported a working fire in one of the first floor apartments. E412 arrived and at the direction of command conducted a primary search of the fire apartment and assisted with overhaul and extinguishment. Crews operated for approximately 1 hour before returning to service.

Carroll House Fire

Very early this morning E412, S414 and 5 other Baltimore County fire apparatus were alerted for a dwelling fire with people trapped in Carroll County. E412 arrived, assisted with water supply and RIT. S414 arrived and was assigned to do the secondary search and assist with overhaul. Both units were on scene approximately 90 minutes before returning to service.

Heavy Rescue Training

This morning we did a heavy rescue training at Rockdale Towing and Peter’s Body Shop.  They had set up two scenarios, one with a school bus partially on its side and leaning on a car and then a motor home sitting on top of a car. We don’t see these types of scenarios often (thankfully for all) but they are things that can happen, so it was great to be able to train on them in a controlled environment.
