Department Events

Tuesday, Jan 13 was a busy day for Dept 29 firefighters. Firefighter/EMT's responded in the morning to an EMS call for a patient with an altered level of consciousness. Later, Dept 29 firefighters invited members from Randolph VFD and Vernon Twp VFD for some VENT training. Training began at approximately 6pm with firefighters discussing venting techniques and terminology. Then firefighters split into 2 groups: while one group worked on venting, the second group went outside to train on throwing 24' and 35' ladders. Training ended at 21:06 when Randolph VFD, West Mead 2 VFD, and Vernon Twp VFD joined Cochranton VFD at the structure fire on Stizerville Rd. WM2 was dispatched for RIT Operations. Two Vernon Twp volunteer firefighters suffered minor injuries during the blaze that resulted in a total loss and multiple re-kindles. While returning from Stizerville Rd at 00:44, Dept 29 was dispatched for their second RIT assist to Walters Rd in Cambridge Township. 29-8 and its crew responded to the scene to establish RIT operations while 29-1 responded to assist with water supply. The garage ended up a total loss. Firefighters knocked down the fire quickl to save the house which had begun to suffer damage from the heat of the garage fire.
