This morning a plaque was hung on the wall at the PA National Fire Museum. A wall that is dedicated to the members of the fire community who have passed. This morning Rescue took pride in joining his family to add the name of Chief Richard Bennar to that wall. Chief Bennar was the first Chief of Rescue who passed earlier this year. Please take a moment to visit the museum and as you walk through glance at the wall and take a moment to pause and remember those names.
This afternoon the Rescue and Engine 1 responded along with Chief 84 to an accident with reported injuries. Chief 84 arrived on location and reported one occupant still in the vehicle in a vehicle vs tree accident. The rescue arrived and assisted the chief and ems with patient packaging and controlling fluids. Crews remained on location approx. 20 mins before returning.
