Members took time this Saturday to help out Rocky Run Fire Company while they were out for training, Tower 5 covered their run area from 0700-1600 so they could focus on aerial operations. While covering the local the Tower crew under the supervision of Chief Jason Wilhelm and Lieutenant Jon McGowan took some time to do some training of our own on Station 46's new roof mock up. Crew practiced vertical ventilation as well as roof-top tactics. We would like to thank Rocky Run Fire Co. for allowing us to utilize their training prop to hone our skills as well as for lunch during the cover.
While the Tower was busy on the cover assignment Engine 5 took some time to help out the residents of Sparks Circle with some water fun for their annual Block party.

Just after 3pm Company 5 was dispatched to the 400 Block of Clifton Ave for a Building Fire to assist Company 09. Tower 5 and 09-2 arrived to find an odor in the building, crews checked the building and found a smoke condition in the basement, crews located the source and determined the fire to be out. Apparatus positioning was great, Ladder to the front of the building and engines in place where they should be. Nice work by Capt. Brian Righter with great positioning at the hydrant.
