Rescue Box 27-13

Station 27 was dispatched to Rescue Box 27-13 at 15:07 hours. Tower 27, Engine 27-1, Rescue 58, Rescue 59 and Medic 151 responded. When Assistant 27 (McDonald) and Deputy 27 (Kelly) arrived on scene, the patient had self extricated and Assistant 27 recalled all units but Station 27 apparatus. The scene was swept up and oil dry was put down. The patient was transported and the scene was turned over to police for further investigation. Thank you to Rescue 58’s crew, who were doing a stand by with Tower 27 at West Rockhill’s September Fest . Chief 27(Brennan) had them respond due to being able to quickly respond and being a heavy rescue and having a full crew. 



Cover Assignment at Station 18

After just under 14 hours, The Tower has cleared covering the West End Fire Company of Quakertown, Station 18, as they were operating on a large hay fire. Covering with the Tower was Montgomery County Rescue 74, pictured below.

Here is the link to the story:


Box 27-13

At 20:00 hours, Station 27 was dispatched to Tactical Box 27-13 for a report of wires arching inside of a dwelling. While Wagon 27 was responding, Bucks County Radio advised that Police were onscene with an active fire in a dryer and the basement filled with smoke. The box assignment was transmitted bringing Rescue and Tower 26, Engine 59, and Montgomery County Engine 72. The Wagon’s crew went to the basement and found the fire contained to the dryer while the Tower’s crew went to the apartments above to check for extension. The assignent was then held to Station 27 apparatus. 

Tonight serves as a reminder that it is important to clean out the lint trap on your dryer as well as the outside vent. The build up of excess lint can easily catch fire and turn into a dangerous situation. It is also important to remember to only use your dryer when you are home. If an incident like this happens and you aren’t home to notice, the situation could be much worse than just a dryer on fire.
