Utility 2, ATV 2, and ATV2a responded with three men to assist.

At approximately 1800 hours the fire on the left flank was in control and command released Co. 2 from the fire. All Co. 2 units were back in service at 1830 hours.

Hugh's Body Shop did an amazing shop repairing rust, dents, and repainting the entire truck in addition to making several needed upgrades. Once the truck has been stripped photos will certainly be posted.




Tuesday, March 4, 2014 09:00-12:0 Back to back structure fires and an EMS fly-out assist kept Big Island and other Bedford County volunteers busy this morning.

The first alarm this morning was a second due structure fire assignment into Company 3's (Boonsboro) first due on Trents Ferry Road.

Barely getting the equipment back into the station the second alarm of the day was a first due structure fire assignment on Powell School Road in Big Island.

Again barely getting the apparatus into the station the third alarm of the day rings out for a med-evac. This was for a patient of the county career staff was providing medical care for.

Sorry, all hands working no time for pictures this time around.
