After most of the members spent most of the day clearing snow, the Company had the annual monthly meeting where we were pleasantly surprised to have Lyla Damiano and family stop by and bring some cupcakes to the members. Lyla was in an accident where QFD members extricated her back in early January. It is not very often that we ever have any follow-up on people we meet in accidents, so it was very nice to see that she is healing and doing well, and we hope she continues to get better and back to normal quickly.
Just after midnight, Rescue 57 responded to an accident in the 700 block of Little Britain Road in Little Britain Township. Roadways were extremely icy, and the vehicle went on its side and struck and broke a pole. Luckily, there were no injuries. QFD Fire Police were in service until 4 am.
At 7:21 am, Rescue and Tanker 57 responded to a vehicle fire in the 1800 block of Kirkwood Pike in Colerain Township. Units arrived with a engine compartment fire in a Jeep. The crew put one line in service and extinguished the fire. QFD Fire Police directed traffic around the scene. *** On a side note, this was the first fire for some of the crew on the Rescue. The line crew had a total of about 6 years experience, but showed that their training and dedication is paying off, getting water on the fire in 45 seconds from the time of arrival. Good job to those guys!!
After getting back to station from the vehicle fire, the Company was alerted for a chimney fire on Pumping Station Road in Colerain Township. The owner put the fire pout and did not want any services.
