Eng 43 & 45 responded to 400 Valley Pine Ct in Greene Twp for a reported dumpster fire. Enrt, communications advised of 2 calls reporting a working fire. AC49 Winklbauer arrived finding trash next to the dumpster and the fence row burning. Crews arrived and the Jr Members went to work. These calls are excellent training and experience for the younger generation. Allowing them to work like this keeps their interest in the fire service thriving!

The Engine Co. at Sta 4 is just that...Engines. They carry only firefighting equipment (minus a few step chokes, kitty litter and 1 med bag) We operate a “wagon/pumper” concept. On House Fires, the Eng Co. operates as 1 team, led by the officer. On the back-step, everyone is on the line! The forward facing seats have priority of the nozzle. The right or left FF, depending on the address side, will have the nozzle. The rear facing seats back them up and are tasked with a hook and halligan/axe. The right-rear facing seat (behind the officer) is the “lay-out” man...or any JR member. The only difference between the 2 engines...the garage door remote!

This wood pile fire was one of the five emergencies members responded to on Friday. The other runs included a fire alarm, carbon monoxide alarm, child locked in an auto and a cardiac arrest. Of course it was Friday so apparatus and engine bay cleaning finished off the day.
