Just after 15:00 (3:00 pm) this afternoon, Engine 31 was requested into Franklin Fire District 3 for a cover assignment at East Franklin Fire Department while District units (Community Volunteer Fire Co. #1/East Franklin) operated at a structure fire. The Engine responded with a crew of 4 and stood by with New Market Fire Department Engine 2 until being released by command a short time later. While standing by at East Franklin, we always like to remind ourselves of the supreme sacrifice made by Foreman Kevin Apuzzio while operating at a house fire on April 11, 2006. The Engine and crew were back in quarters by 16:30 (4:30 pm).

This morning at approximately 02:15, District 2 Companies were dispatched for a reported fire in a residence on Ari Drive. Chief 31 arrived and established command, reporting fire through the roof. Griggstown (Griggstown Fire Company - Station 35) Engine 35 and Franklin Park Truck 31 arrived, and crews went right to work. Engine 35’s crew stretched a handline into the residence, and Truck 31 set up for aerial master stream operations. Chief 31 quickly upgraded the assignment to a second alarm, due to fire progression. Crews were able to stop the fire from advancing into neighboring units, limiting damage. The cause is currently under investigation by the Franklin Township Fire Prevention Bureau. A huge thank goes out to all of our mutual aid partners for assistance both on scene and for coverage. All Franklin Park units were back in quarters by 05:30.

It’s that time of year again, folks! Don’t forget that when you change your clocks, change your batteries in your smoke and carbon monoxide detectors too! According to the NFPA, almost 3 out of 5 fire deaths were caused by fires in properties with no smoke alarms or smoke alarms that failed to operate.
