Busy day for the Middletown Volunteers. This morning, while one member finished up his BVR class at Lower Swatara Fire Department, some of the water rescue personnel participated in a decontamination class, taught by Andy Megonnel from Dauphin County Hazmat. Personnel went over proper recon of PPE, as well as other equipment. Shortly after class wrapped up, Rescue 88 responded to E Main and Spruce Streets to assist with fluid control at a non-injury accident. Then, late this afternoon/early evening, Rescue 88 was dispatched to the 100 block of W Second St in Hummelstown Fire Department’s first due, for an apartment fire, which was quickly upgraded to a 1st Alarm, adding Truck 88. Truck 88 responded with 4 personnel while the Rescue responded with 3 personnel. Both units from 88 arrived and reported to manpower staging, as first in crews made quick work of the fire in a second floor apartment. Rescue 88 was released shortly after the incident was placed under control while the Truck remained on scene and assisted with air monitoring, before being released.
