It's National Fire Prevention Week! Join us at the station on Thursday 10/8/15 from 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm for our annual open house.Did you know that many people don't test their smoke alarms as often as they should? When there is a fire, smoke spreads fast. You need working smoke alarms to give you time to get out. Test yours every month! Source: NFPA

Quint 75 worked with our mutual partners to tackle this 1.5 story single family dwelling in Barrington. Squad 32 (Beaver Brook Duty Crew) was the 1st arrive apparatus and were faced with challenges right off the bat. They had a downed primary wire which charged the house and a gas fed fire out front. The power was secured to the wire at which point the crews transitioned to an interior attack. Quint 75 arrived and assisted with outside ventilation for the interior attack crew. Due to rapidly changing conditions the operation went defensive. At which time the crew assisted with multiple hand line on the "A" and "B" sides. Strong work by all on scene!
