Mutual Aid Training

Sunday, March 3, 2013  This past Tuesday evening, North Penn was invited to station 80 for a group training held by them. Upper Gwynedd Fire Department went over forcible entry using a door prop they purchased. Using a halligan and ax, as well as what is referred to a rabbit tool, members of both 62 and 80 had plenty of hands on with the door. Along with the door prop, there was also a window prop, made by members of station 80. Using the window prop, members were able to practice bailing out, removal of a patient and entering a window off a ladder.

Thank you to Upper Gwynedd Fire Department for inviting us

Fire in the Borough

Sunday, January 27, 2013   This past Friday a call came in for flames from the side of a residence in North Wales. The initial dispatched called for Station 62, Squad 80, Ladder 18 and Squad 14 as well as QRS 62 and an ambulance from 345. Deputy Chief 62 arrived on scene with a working fire and went into 62 Command. Crews went into service with inch and three quarter lines and began an interior attack on the fire. 62 Command monitored the progression of the fire and pulled the crews out to switch to a defensive attack. The fire was knocked down and operations went back into interior operations to hit hot spots and to perform salvage and overhaul. There was no reported injuries.  

Additional companies on the call were Rescue 18, Engine 76, Ladder 83 (FAST Team), Rescue 345

Special thanks to companies 33 and 7 for being our stand by companies, covering our calls during the fire.
