A Busy Saturday
Date: 04.21.2012

Our day had an early start with six members heading off to Norristown on board Rescue 21 for the final day of trench rescue class. Members were completing a 16 hour class with our brothers from the Norristown Fire Department and Upper Merion fire companies. Around 11:15 in the morning, the rescue assignment was dispatched for Montgomery Avenue just east of the Blue Route overpass. Callers were reporting a single vehicle on its side with at least one person who cannot get out. Crews from Bryn Mawr (23), Belmont Hills (22) and Penn Wynne (21) Fire Companies as well as Lower Merion Police and Narberth Ambulance made the response. First arriving Bryn Mawr firefighters confirmed a single vehicle on its side with multiple (5) occupants, some disabled, trapped inside. Crews from all three companies worked dligently to stablize the vehicle and remove the roof.

After dinner, Penn Wynne was dispatched to Yarmouth Road for a carbon monoxide alarm activation, followed by two fire alarm activations at the Greenhill Condominiums.
