Share via email

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.

EXTRICATION DRILL

Share via email

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.
