What was the cause of that fire, bad bulb or shorted out switch?

A critique of last week’s Technical Rescue was presented by Annville-Cleona Fire District at Palmyra Fire this evening.

All involved were very pleased on how this low frequency event was handled and how different agencies and departments came together to promptly execute a plan.

Discussions were had on other possible techniques, resources, and back-up plans.

A very productive and proactive critique.

This afternoon Co #1 along with mutual aid units were dispatched to the 1-07 in the township for a reported basement fire. DO-1(Braden) went enroute with addition information from LEMA reporting smoke in the basement with audible alarms in the back ground. Wagon 1 (Capt Spencer) arrived beginning to lay in when the duty officer marked control holding to Co# 1. T-1(FF Berkhimer) arrived assisted the Wagon with investigations and ventilating the basement from a light smoke condition . Problem was found to be an shorted out extension cord that melted the carpet. All units cleared the scene in about 1/2 hr. ... See moreSee less

Regional Burn day with Campbelltown Volunteer Fire Company and Lawn Fire Company.

Members from all three departments gathered to perform live burn evolutions at Lebanon County Fire School. A very productive day drilling on 1st due Engine and Truck company work.

Congrats to Lt Menear, FF Murphree as they completed and were awarded the Red front Truck certification. The burn today being their final test after many months of training on the Tower Ladder and Truck functions.

Congratulations to Probationary Firefighters Mickalonis and Hays who have come to us with prior experience, have now earned their Black Engine Company fronts. As they have put the time in to learn our procedures and also took a beating at the burn today.

Thanks to the Lebanon County Burn Techs for their time and efforts!

Tower 1 was alerted to Annville Twp Annville-Cleona Fire District for a Dwelling fire. Chief 58 arrived to find smoke showing and a fire on the first floor of a garage with an occupied apartment above.

The 3 members of Tower 1’s outside team laddered the building, opened up while the 3 inside team members searched the apartment above the fire with no occupants found. Fire extension was handled as well as holes in the floor.
