The Beaver Brook Fire Alliance (Barrington, Bellmawr, Haddon Heights, and Runnemede) received our shipment of 109 new Scott SCBA. This purchase was made possible by the FEMA AFG Grant awarded to the Alliance last year. These new air packs are the 2013 NFPA compliant models and have the Pak Tracker feature. The officers from all four stations worked together this morning at our fire house to get the SCBA sorted out and programmed. We will be conducting in house training and pack familiarization in the up coming week. These new SCBA shall be in service shortly!

Around 13:00 just as the SCBA project was wrapping up for the day, we were dispatched to 9th Ave in the area of the Black Horse Pike. Original reports were live wires down on a tractor trailer with the driver still inside. Upon arrival, we worked with PSEG who was already on location. The wires were determined to be dead and the driver was assisted out of the vehicle. One PSEG worker was transported for an injury sustained while working in the bucket when the pole and wires came down. Runnemede Police Department, Public Works, and Camden County Fire Police provided traffic control for the effected areas.
