2nd Alarm Assignment

Shortly after 2200 hours, QFD and surrounding companies were dispatched to the Stonegate Village Development in Richland Township for a reported house fire. Battalion 17 went on scene and had an end of the row unit with heavy fire showing and spreading to the bravo and delta exposures. The Tower was dispatched as part of the 2nd Alarm Assignment and reported to the man power pool. The Tower’s crew was split into three 2-man crews were put to work checking for extension in other units.



Tuesday Night Drill

Last night for our reguarly scheduled Tuesday night drill, members practiced the setting up and operation of the Tower. Each member had to set the outriggers, put the main up from the turn table, climb up to the bucket, and then bed the ladder. We were also joined last night by a local Boy Scout Troop who got to watch as we practiced our skills.



Smoke Filled Office

At 1707 hours, Station 27 was dispatched for a fire alarm at the Summit Building in West Rockhill Township. Chief and Deputy 27 went on location to find an office building that was filled with smoke and with cleaners on location. The source was found to be a rag and coffee pot on top of the stove that was accidentally turned on. Engine 27-1 arrived and had its crew split to go to the interior to check for extension and set up positive pressure venilation with the assistance of the Tower’s crew.  


Tower Goes to Perkasie

Early this evening at 1651 hours, crews were dispatched to box 26-17 for a reported apartment fire in the Shadywood Village with the caller reporting a strong smell of something burning . Engine 26 went on scene and confirmed a strong burning smell with a smoke condition on the first floor. Shortly after the arrival of Tower and Assistant 27, the source was found to be a smoldering trash can. The Tower’s crew assisted Engine, Rescue, and Tower 26 with ventilating and were available a short time later.



Ice Storm Keeps Volunteers Busy

Once last night’s winter storm passed through our area, the effects of it were felt not only in our coverage area, but through out the entire County. At 0823 hours, Engine 27 was first dispatched to a wires call in the area of Bethlehem Pike and Green Top Road. Shortly after, another call was dispatched for a reported gas leak in the same area, which ended up being the same as the wires call. While on scene waiting for PP&L, another wires arching call was dispatched on Forrest Road in the area of Mountian View Road, which was handled by Engine 26 and Montgomery Engine 72. 

At 1134 hours, the Tower and Assistant Chief went to assist Station 59 on the reported dwelling fire. A burnt surge protector was found to be the problem and the company was available shortly after.




Working Fire in Telford

At 1707 hours, Tower 27 was dispatched to cover Montgomery County Station 75 while they operated at a working house fire. The Tower had just backed into Station 75 when they were called to the scene. At the same time, Engine 27-1 was also dispatched to the scene for additional man power. The Tower’s crew assisted with opening up the second floor and checking for extension while the Engine’s crew worked on the exterior checking for extension in the siding.  




Diner Fire in the Borough

Shortly after 8:30 AM on Sunday morning, Station 27 was dispatched for a building fire at the A&N Diner on South Main Street.  The dispatch included Rescue and Tower 26, Engine 59 and Montgomery County Squad 75.  A tanker task force was automatically dispatched due to the recent work on the local water tower.  Assistant 27 arrived on the scene with a small fire on the exterior of the building, from the roof area. Rescue 58 was then dispatched for RIT.  Wagon 27 laid in and went to work with a 2.5” line.  Tower 27 was positioned on the A/B corner and sent their crew to the roof.  Rescue 26 made a long lay from Diamond St as a secondary water supply, and Tower 26 set up on the C/D corner.  The crew from Engine 27-1 assisted the roof crew, and Engine 59 and Squad 75 assisted with manpower.  Montgomery County Engine 74-1 (originally on the tanker task force dispatch) also assisted on scene.  All the crews worked to extinguish a small fire in the roof before it spread into the building.  

While units were committed at the scene, Montco Engine 74-2 handled a fire alarm activation at a residence in Hilltown Township.  After that, they stood by at Station 27.


Tactical Box 27-12

At 2:43 this afternoon, Station 27 was dispatched for an odor of electrical inside a home off of Hughes Ave. The crew of the Wagon found an outlet strip in the living room that was the source of the foul odor. This was a close call, as this outlet strip left a small scorch mark on the floor. 

You can see this outlet strip and other fire sources at our open house next week. We’ll see you on Sunday, October 27th between Noon to 3PM!
