Crews made quick work of opening up and extinguishing the fire. Tanker 11 placed in service and the remaining crews picked up within 30 min.
After a long and busy day of calls this past Saturday a passerby knocked on the front door of our firehouse around 11:46pm to advise us of a accident that had just occurred in the intersection In front of the firehouse (Rt1. & Howard st.). Acting chief 6b (Larkins) went out to investigate and immediately called for the full rescue assignment for 2 vehicles with 1 person trapped and established the Washington blvd command. This brought 3 pieces of apparatus from Savage As well as 2 Chiefs from Savage and multiple surrounding units to the scene. RE6 and TWR10 worked side by side to remove the patient who was transported by P95 to Shock trauma. E62 provided suppression for the duration of the incident and T6 provided manpower. All units operated for about 45 minutes before being placed in service.
Truck 6 & chief 6A Runs mutual aid Fire in the Maryland City section of Anne Arundel County. This particular area had received several lightening strikes in a short period of time causing multiple fire alarms to sound. Initially the truck was placed on a general fire alarm and while responding it was determined to be the same building location as a reported building fire. Truck 6 was first arriving ariel and set up on the front of the building, with smoke showing from the roof. The crew split and immediately went inside and started forcing entry and hooking ceilings trying to locate the bulk of the fire, the other half of the crew threw ground ladders and went to the roof and cut a ventilation hole. Command requested a 2nd alarm to the scene to assist. Due to difficult access into the attic and the fire intensifying, interior crews were pulled out and ladder pipes went into service. Once the bulk of the fire was knocked down truck 6 went back inside to assist crews with overhaul until later being placed in service, crews operated for several hours.
Truck Six assumed first arriving Ladder responsibilities and assisted fire attack with search and ventilation. Engine 62, first arriving engine on the 2nd alarm and assigned to the 4th floor division to assist with fire attack due to majority of the first alarm units already committed to removing occupants. While in the overhaul stage a “MAYDAY” was transmitted by a AACO company for a downed Firefighter, two members from Engine 62′s crew Captain Kevin Larkins and FF/EMT Tyler Jones along with members of Laurel VFD Truck Co. 10 located and removed the downed Firefighter. He transported to a local hospital with non-life threatening injuries.
Members from Savage and Ellicott City took part in a combined training. The drill was located at Crazy Ray’s whom we’d like to thank for providing our members with valuable hands on training. Members from both departments were able to practice their stabilization and extrication skills with vehicle accidents, where this becomes important for training is understanding how to best access the patients still trapped inside the car.
