Another Busy Day

Thursday, January 28, 2016  Starting off today like the last couple busy days. Quint 75 responding to a reported dwelling fire on the 100 block of Kingston Dr in Barrington. Luckily it was only steam from a normal operating chimney thought to be smoke. As always, stay safe out there!



1st Due Dwelling in Glendora

Wednesday, January 27, 2016  Quint and Squad 75 are back in station cleaning up from an All Hands dwelling fire on the 200 block of 7th Ave in Glendora. Quint 75 arrived 1st due, forced entry, and operated with a 1 3/4" handline. Squad 75 arrived 3rd due and assisted Engine 821's (Chews Landing) crew with the water supply and stretched the 2nd handline. The fire was placed under control quickly and turned over to the local and county fire investigation units. Strong work by the companies on location: Glendora, Magnolia, Blenheim, and Blackwood.

Ladder 32 (Bellmawr) responded to a interior natural gas release at 835 E. Clements Bridge Road while our units were on location in Glendora. Squad 75 responded once they were released from the Glendora fire ground.



Small Fire at the Metropolitan Apts.

Tuesday, January 26, 2016  Apartment Fire at the Metropolitan Apartments on Norwalk Road. Quint 75 has the bulk of the fire knocked down and 701 placed the fire under control at 10:48. Rescue 82 (Chews Landing) on location assisting with ventilation and overhaul. Squirt 21 (Haddon Heights) at our Station providing a cover.



Hydrant Maintenance Post Storm

Monday, January 25, 2016  The dedicated members spent today and 7pm-9pm this evening clearing 81 hydrants on the east and west side. These are not counting the ones so graciously cleared by our residents. We'd like to extend a huge THANK YOU to all the residents who adopted a hydrant. If anyone spots one we missed, you're urged to call the station at (856) 939-4390. We'll continue our efforts throughout the week.



Vehicle Fire

Sunday, January 24, 2016  Quint 75 operated at the Presidential Apartments this morning on a vehicle fire. Police reported the vehicle was well involved and up against the structure which prompted the Communications Center to upgrade the response to a building fire. Squad 32 checked the building for extension with negative results.

Reminder: now that the snowfall has seized, please give us a hand clearing out the nearest hydrant. The members will be working our way throughout the town over the next couple days, but any help is greatly appreciated!



All Hands Dwelling in Hi-Nella

Wednesday, January 13, 2016  Squad 75 and 701 operated at this all hands fire in Hi-Nella. Squad 75 acted as the RIT team and also assisted with ventilation and exterior overhaul. Outstanding job by all units on location. Everyone goes home!



MVA w/ Entrapment

Friday, January 8, 2016  Just before 23:00 the Regional Duty Crew staffed by Bellmawr and Runnemede Firefighters responded to the Black Horse Pike and NJ Turnpike for a single vehicle accident. The crew used the hydraulic tools to extricate one victim from the vehicle.



Quint 75's Dedication Plaque

Thursday, January 7, 2016  The dedication plaque finally arrived and was installed on Quint 75. Thanks to all the members involved during the build process and of course the Mayor and Council for making it happen. As we said in the past, this piece of apparatus greatly increases our firefighting capabilities within Runnemede and the surrounding towns we serve. 



Happy New Year!
