Palmyra Fire

Weekly drill started off with a Post Incident Review of a first due fire. This is where members discuss tactics and methods that went well and those that need improvement. Many times informal reviews occur at the kitchen table, all are important.

The second half covered a small rope review session regarding inventory and securing a patient into the stokes basket.

Palmyra Fire

In the evening of New Years Day the Palmyra Volunteers and mutual aid companies were dispatched for a reported fire in a basement in the Borough. The Chief arrived with nothing evident as the Wagon and Tower companies arrived performing first due duties pulling a line and laddering the building. The Wagon crew discovered a moderate smoke condition in the basement with a fire in the ceiling and wall running up to the first floor. Crews extinguished any fire and continued to check for extension. Once assured of no additional extension the box was placed back in service. ... See moreSee less
