Where was this?

The 4 way stop sign?

Tonight members of GSFR got together for the second half of the “EMS for the Rescuer” training. Over 30 members spent the night going to different stations to learn hands on skills such as airway, bleeding control, how to work the ambulances equipment, a review of our own equipment, as well as how to perform CPR on a down firefighter.

Big thank you to New Holland Ambulance for bringing a crew and an ambulance to the station to help with this training.

GSFR assists at 2 working fires overnight

At 2:30am, Air 39 was dispatched to White School Rd. in Honey Brook Twp. Chester Co. to assist Chester Co. 33 (Honey Brook) and mutual Aid units with a building fire. The crew operated for just under an hour before being released by command.

At 3:30am, the first alarm was dispatched to Newport Rd (Rt. 772) in Salisbury Twp for a reported barn fire. Units from Gap Fire Co. arrived with fire showing from a large 2 story shop. Command requested 3 additional tanker to the scene for water supply which sent Tanker 39. Several minutes later, command upgraded the assignment to a 2nd alarm bringing many additional units including Air 39.

Later into the incident Traffic 39 was requested to assist with traffic control for the tanker shuttle operation as water needed to be hauled into the scene from a nearby creek.

All units from GSFR were clear of the fire scene by 7:30am.

Volunteers willingly give of their time overnight knowing they have a full work day ahead of them in the morning to ensure our communities are protected!
