Smoke Detector Activation
Thursday, March 23, 2017 
-
Early this morning companies were dispatched for a smoke detector activation. A neighbor could hear the alarm going off and wasn't sure what apartment it was coming from. Crews located the apartment and got no response from knocking. When crews gained entry they found the apartment filled with smoke due to burnt food and the resident asleep with earbuds in. Crews ventilated the apartment from smoke before leaving. A few hours later the company was dispatched this time to Ridley Park for another Fire Alarm

This week for Drill the crew completed a re-certification course in CPR. Even though the certification is good for 2 years, we like to do it every year as it is an important life saving skill that we can be called to use on a call or outside of the fire house.
