Snowmaggedon 2016
Date: 01.22.2016

As forecasts changed through the week, we began to realize a strong N'or Easter was headed our way. Preparations began Friday afternoon calling for volunteers to staff the station from Friday evening (7 pm) through Sunday morning (11 am). Food was bought and the chains were installed on the trucks Friday night. Crews worked diligently to ensure the station grounds were clear for any type of response during this forty-hour period. Just before dinner on Saturday, we assisted Narberth Fire Company on Winchester Road for a possible building fire. At 6:30, Saturday night, we responded to Arbordale Road for a fire alarm. On our return to the station, we learned that due to the deep and drifting snow, we would be sending an engine to assist EMS on all residential medical calls. The overnight hours were quiet. Sunday morning brought clear skies and an assist EMS call at 8:46 on Tomkenn Road. Our last call of the storm came in at 12:46 pm on Sunday to assist EMS.
