Early yesterday morning, Truck Co.37 was dispatched to the 2700 block of Largo Road for the reported house on fire. As the truck crested the hill on 202 (Largo Road) the truck crew knew they were heading to a good job. The truck arrived as dispatched as the 1st due truck and went right to work. As Engine Co. 20 (Marlboro) was starting to make an attack on the fire, the interior crew from Truck Co.37 started opening up and working on searches. As members from the truck crew were operating inside, wind driven fire conditions and a lack of a water supply (non-hydranted area) pushed them back. Once a water supply was re-established the truck officer requested from command to allow Engine Co.46 and Truck Co.37 to mount another interior attack. Companies re-entered the structure knocking a few rooms of fire and completing interior tasks. Searches proved negative and the Truck Co. returned to service a few hours later.
Just after 1200 on 11/15, Engine Co.371 was alerted to the intersection of 202 & Whitehouse Rd. for a vehicle vs. a tractor trailer with the vehicle under the trailer and a person trapped. Engine Co.371 arrived shortly after confirming the same and assisted the squad company with the extrication of the victim.
While members of the company were just finishing up daily checks of the apparatus a 46 box was transmitted for a report of a house on fire with people possibly trapped. Truck Co.37 with 6 men were assigned the 1st due truck assignment on the box alarm, and arrived with smoke showing and a working basement fire. The truck crew split into the inside and outside teams completing searches of the basement, opening up and laddering the structure. Truck Co.37 remained on scene for approximately 2.5 hours before returning to service.
At approximately 2130 hours, Halloween night, an 8 box was transmitted for a report of a house on fire in the 700 block of Birchleaf Avenue, sending Truck Co. 37 as the second due truck. Companies arrived on scene to find fire showing from the 1st and 2nd floor of a duplex with a possible exposure problem. Truck Co.37 completed their assigned tasks laddering, searching and opening up the fire building while operating for several hours before returning to service.
