Just after 2:30am this morning Tender 171 was dispatched into Pemberton Township for a working house fire. Tender 1716 with a crew of 6 along with Chief 1710 responded on the incident. Once on location 1716's chauffeur worked to setup a water supply to the first arriving units. The rest of the crew split in half and went to the roof where they used an assortment of saws to cut through multiple layers of roofing while the other half of the crew went interior to open up ceilings and extinguish hot spots. Vincentown units cleared shortly after 5am. #vincentfire171
The Vincent Fire Company will be participating in this event tomorrow night at 9pm. Please show your support as we remember those from the Fire and EMS Services that took their own lives.
Shortly after 6pm this evening the volunteers of Tabernacle Rescue Squad were dispatched for a motor vehicle accident report at Rt. 206 and Cramer Road. Our se...cond rig responded, as our duty crew was handling another call. 4300 (Tabernacle Fire) arrived and reported the one patient to be heavily entrapped and upgraded the assignment to a Rescue. Rescue Engine 1711 (Vincent Fire Company) was requested as they were already on the street for an unfounded accident in their township.
Rescue 4399 and 1711 arrived almost simultaneously along with 4312. Crews from 4399 and 1711 worked together to extricate the patient. The crew of 4312 pulled a hose line and stood by to provide fire protection for the rescue crews. 1723 (Hampton Lakes Vol Fire Co) provided a LZ which was luckily not needed.
1783 (Hampton Lakes Emergency Squad) responded as our 4th ambulance while our duty crew returned to the scene from the hospital. Shamong EMS responded to another dispatch in our township that our duty crew eventually handled after being released from the accident scene. Virtua paramedics and command staff also responded.
We thank these mutual aid units for their assistance as your volunteers worked to handle 3 simultaneous calls in the township including the rescue assignment. #RescueEMS #teamwork #hometownsquad #bluecrew
