We protect our emergency responders by repurposing old fire engines that would normally be retired as "traffic blockers". These blockers are used as a shield while working on highways. Pictured here is Blocker 7.

Do YOUR part to keep emergency responders safe by not texting and driving. If you see flashing lights on the highway, MOVE OVER and SLOW DOWN.
Don't tempt fate - that text can wait!

The engine company was out conducting hydrant inspections during duty crew. During inspection we look for cracks, looses bolts, and make sure the caps can be easily removed incase of an incident. We then flow the hydrant to make no debris and objects are stuck inside. We then hook up to check about of water pressure we are getting. This will determine how many handlines and/or aerial devices can be operated just off that hydrant.

This afternoon the engine company was dispatched to cover Sta 131 (Lumberton) while units in the RV district operated at a 2 alarm fire. Shortly after arriving in D13 the engine was detailed to a Wild land fire in D18 (Pemberton/Browns Mills). The Engine is standing by for an assignment along side numerous other companies from the area.

Update: The crew of Engine 1222 and Capt. 1202 responded to a report of a tree leaning on wires in D18. While responding they came across a minor MVA checked for any patients before turning the scene back over to Pd. Now the crew and other members of the department are back home freshening up on their saw skills.

4 Runs + 1 Night of training equals a decent and well rounded day for the department
The past 24hrs and then some were relatively busy for the members of District 12. Members were able to staff the engine in house during this span and repsonded to 6 different calls for service along with a day full of training from our friends at On Scene Training Associates (OSTA). During this training members were able to strengthen their knowledge on Truck Company operations from throwing ladders to ventilation strategies and tactics. We want to thank the instructors from OSTA for coming out and working with us today, we look forward to working with you again soon! Hopefully next time we don’t have to experience all 4 seasons next time!

Additional units arrived and assisted with ventilation of the building.
