working fire in the first due

Mar 3, 2019

Monday morning just after 0630hrs, the box alarm was dispatched to the area of Ridge Rd. by the PA line. Engine 135 (T. Mixon) went enroute with 4 personnel. E135 arrived to find a 2 story end of the row home with fire showing from the first floor. Due to this call being dispatched with subjects trapped, crews split, hose line crew and search team. Delaware County E39 arrived to assist with fire suppression as well as R13, arriving first due special. Rescue 13 picked up and completed the searches which turned out to be negative. Attack crews had the fire quickly in check and all units cleared in little under 2 hours. Chief M. Harris has Claymont Command.

MVC on Harvey Rd.

Feb 2, 2019

At 11pm last evening, our rescue was dispatched to Harvey Road in the area of the I-95 bridge for this MVC. Both our rescue and engine responded within seconds. Upon arrival, R13 reported a vehicle partially into a trench excavation with the driver still in the car. Once the patient was evaluated, crews assisted him climbing thru the vehicle and out the back doors. Incident command was Chief 13-8 Harris and the incident is being investigated by PD. Side note; this was an active work site. The driver went around flagmen in the street around barricades and ended up in the excavation! It’s very luck no one was near or IN the excavation the time. Please pay attention while driving.
