Back to Back Calls
Date: 05.26.2017

Last night we were dispatched for a building in our local around 11:35 pm. A resident on Rosedale Road reported fire showing from the window of the house behind her on Rolling Road. After an investigation, we determined the house was not on fire but tree and wires were burning. A call was placed to Peco. With no services necessary we went available. Thanks for the assist Narberth Fire Company.

We had just backed the trucks into the station and were dispatched to Lankenau Medical Center at 12:04 am for an elevator rescue in the C garage. Chief, Rescue and Ladder 21 arrived to find a power outage in the garage with one person trapped in an elevator at the second floor. Unfortunately the inner doors of the elevator car were open preventing us from opening the outer doors of the car. After maintenance locked out the power as a precaution, we went to the floor above, dropped down to the car and removed the individual using a ladder. Ropes were used for firefighter safety while operating on the top of the car. The rescue was complete in 50 minutes.
