Just after 1700hrs on Thursday April 24, Paramedic 65 and Engine 61 were alerted to respond mutual aid to Anne Arundel County for the vehicle collision on Rt. 32 on the MD-295 Overpass. E-271 (Maryland City) was first arriving, closely followed by P-65 and E-61. P-65 and E-61 were originally put to work with pt. assessments and controlling fluids on the five car pileup. It was soon discovered that one pt. would need to be extricated from their vehicle. E-61 went to work stabilizing the car and began a rear door and b-post removal to gain access to the driver. E-61 used its portable cutters and combi-tool to gain access to the patient. After removing the B-post and rear door, E-61’s crew then removed the seatback from the passenger seat to get to the driver. The Engine crew assisted with patient removal, and transferred the patient to the awaiting AACo Medic. Units were on scene for about 45 minutes, completing fluid control and clean-up.

Tuesday, December 24, 2013 – Members from Savage were preparing for the annual Christmas Eve Santa Claus detail, when the alarm sounded for a fire in Laurel 49′s area. As Truck 6 responded units on scene reported fire showing on side C from 4 units, a task force was called for, followed quickly by a 2nd alarm that was transmitted sending E-62 and Chief 6B to the scene. T-6 arrived as 2nd truck and took up a tough spot with limited access on the Charlie side. Crews began laddering the 2nd and 3rd floors and then went to assist with a search and opening up the ceilings. E-62 arrived and was tasked with going to the 3rd floor to assist with fire attack as well as opening up to check for extension. Crews operating on scene were able to make an aggressive attack and had the fire extinguished within the hour, E-62 was released back to service while T-6 remained to assist with overhaul for about the next hour or so.
Saturday, December 21, 2013 – Just after midnight Engine 62 and Truck 6 were sent to investigate an AFA (Automatic Fire Alarm) sounding in a buisness on Maier Road located in our first due response area. Upon arrival units found fire showing from the front of the building, E-62 requested to fill the box and proceeded to stretch an attack line, while T-6 went to work forcing the door and opening up. Crews made an aggressive interior attack on the fire which was deep seeded in rolls of carpet padding. Additionally staffed crews from Savage brought E-61, Medic 65, Ambulance 66 and chief 6. Engine 61 arrived and supplied water, as well as stretching a back up line. Given the present interior conditions command requested a 2nd alarm bringing multiple units from Howard County and from the surrounding jurisdictions of Anne Arundel and PG Counties to assist with fire attack. Crews were able to extinguish the stubborn blaze within the hour and were then in the process of overhaul and smoke removal. Our new Canteen-6 made its first official run to help with rehab. Savage fire station units operated on scene for approximately 3 before packing up and returning to quarters.
