2/17/18 With the inclement weather descending upon the Schuylkill Haven area several members of the company started to arrive at the station to staff apparatus in the event of an emergency. While at the station one member alerted the others that he could hear what could possibly be the audible alarm of a smoke detector sounding. Upon further investigation they determined it to be coming from a residence across from the station and that there was an odor of something burning and a visible haze inside the residence with no answer at the door. Assistant chief 6394 requested a full department response for smoke in a structure. Engine 6312 was pulled from station and crews made entry and found a small fire involving a heat lamp that fell on the floor boards. While extinguishing the fire and checking for extension one of our members had a medical emergency and collapsed, crews immediately provided medical care and deployed the AED from the engine. The member was transported and is on the road to recovering. Over the years through both fundraising and grant applications the company has been able to equip all of our apparatus with AEDs to protect the community and our own. This incident reaffirmed the importance of this lifesaving equipment. Photos by A. Farr
