I think DCFD has one of the most compassionate, educated fire/rescue crews in all of Lackawanna County.

Ladder 23 responded into Area 27 on a first alarm assignment for a smell of smoke in the building at one of the Gertrude Hawk buildings, which is currently under construction. Chief 27 arrived on scene and confirmed a working fire in the "A"-Side wall. The ladder arrived as the first due truck company and the crew split, performing inside and outside responsibilities. The building was laddered with both ground ladders and the aerial ladder by the outside team, and the inside team reported no fire conditions on the interior. The ladder operated on scene for about 45 minutes and returned to the Borough.

Around 3am this Valentine's Day the DCFD was called to assist in Susquehanna County on I-81 with a multi-vehicle crash with tractor trailers involved. Due to icy road conditions some units on original dispatch were not able to respond due to ice and another slid off the road into a ditch. Crews arrived and were tasked with extricating a heavily trapped victim on a travtor trailer. The vehicle was stabilized with the use of our Air-Shores, hydraulic rams were used to preform a... "dash push", and the victim was extricated. Rescue Company 23 worked in conjunction with E-36, R-2, R-59, United Fire Company, and CHEMS Paramedics. Reacue 23 also assited Hallsted Fire on extrication of a second victim. This is probably one of our furthest requests for assistance in quite sometime but we still show our "heart's" and love by responding. Prayers for all involved. Becareful out there and have a Happy Valentine's Day. Love, DCFD-23.
