Busy Training Night Brings Two Calls

     Just prior to heading home from company training, we received a call for a multiple vehicle accident in the area of Taylor Bridge Bypass and Camp Hill Bypass. Engine 121 went responding with three and followed Ambulance 14 in to the scene. Crew assisted with patient care and vehicle stabilization. Rescue 20 arrived and assisted with vehicle stabilization, patient care and lighting.After the vehicles were removed and the roadway cleared of debris, companies cleared the call.

     Before returning to quarters, Engine 121 proceeded to refuel diesel. While pumping, East Pennsboro Township, with assistance from Company 13 (West Shore), received a first alarm for odor of gas inside a structure. Engine 121 responded to Third Street in West Fairview and sent their manpower to assist crews. Once cause was determined, Company 21 cleared the call.
