Monday Night Drill!

This week, our Chief of all things Special, Asst Chief 48 Dave Olson, reviewed our vehicle stabilization and lifting capabilities. Squad 41 carries a host of vehicle stabilization equipment to include Res-Q-Jack & Para-Tech struts and all the equipment needed for their operation. Granted, we probably would never need to stabilize and lift the old wooden gear rack...but it makes for a good simulation!

🚨That time a sprinkler saved Wal-Mart🚨

At 2:44, as most were sleeping, Franklin 911 alerted Co.7 (Fayetteville) for a fire alarm at 1730 Lincoln Way East @ Wal-Mart. They soon received a call advising of “smoke in the building” and upgraded the call to a full box alarm, sending Eng 45 & Squad 41. As crew’s entered, they found an activated sprinkler head in a front storage room with a pile of burning boxes underneath it. Once the water was controlled, crews were able to overhaul the area. The fire was contained to the area of origin. And no...we are not sure what started it.
