First Due Trailer Fire

In the late evening hours, Station 51 and Station 45 (Clayton) were both alerted for a possible electrical fire in a mobile home. As units were responding, Kent Center advised all units that the RP could see visible fire coming from the roof. At that time, Kent Center upgraded the call to a working alarm which added Queen Anne's County MD. Station 6 (Sudlersville) for the Tanker and RIT and Station 56 (Marydel) for a cover-up at Station 51. Command 51 (2nd. Asst. Chief Morris) arrived on location and reported smoke showing from the roof of a modular home and assumed command. Command advised 51-3 w/5 (1st. Asst. Chief Norris) to pull into the driveway and pull an 1 3/4" hand line and make entry on the Alpha Side. 51-3 arrived on location and did as directed. As crews made entry, they were met with fire conditions in the roof of the structure so crews started to pull the ceiling and put a knock on the fire. As more crews made entry, more ceiling on the Charlie side of the structure was pulled and another hand line was brought in. As crews continued to work, the fire conditions worsened inside and the evacuation tones were sounded switching all operations to a defensive mode. Crews from Hartly and Clayton began opening the roof on the Bravo and Delta sides and began knocking the fire down in the roof. At that time, Command 51 advised Kent Center to alert next due tanker which brought in the cover-up at Station 51 and a Tanker from Station 56 (Marydel). As conditons improved, crews were sent back in and operations were again switched back to an offensive attack. As interior crews from all stations began pulling the rest of the ceiling all hot spots were hit and extensive overhaul began. Commmand 51 placed the scene under control at 23:58 and returned QAC MD. Station 6 units. Crews continued overhaul and once FM13 was finished, crews began to foam the residence to extinguish any remaining hot spots. Once that was completed, Command 51 returned all units and turned the scene over to the FM and terminated command. All 51 units were in quarters at 01:42. Special thanks to all companies who assisted and to Station 43 (Cheswold) for providing a cover-up at Station 51.

MVC Rollover with Subject Trapped
Tuesday, March 18, 2014 00:13
-
Just after Midnight, Hartly's Volunteers along with KM7, KM5, and Trooper 4 were alerted for a MVC rollover with possible subjects trapped. Command (Asst. Chief Norris), arrived to find a single vehicle overturned in the ditch with a subject still in the vehicle. 51-3 (Asst. Chief Morris w/ 6) was assigned to secure the vehicle while Rescue 51-6 (Chief Connors w7) was ordered to prepare their extrication tools. Due to the vehicle's location in the ditch crews were unable to open the doors far enough to pull the patient out. Crews took the glass from the rear window and successfully extricated the patient in 6 minutes. BLS and ALS evaluated the patient and transported by ground to Kent General Hospital. Scene was turned over to DSP and units returned available.
