AT 1132 hours, we were dispatched along with mutual aid companies for a boat fire on the Sassafras River, west of Georgetown. Land units made access from Starkey Farm Lane while boat 3 launched in Georgetown. Boat 3 was the first to arrive to find a 42 foot powerboat with heavy fire showing. Boat 3 made a knock on the fire with the bow turret and then advanced utilized handlines with foam to continue to knock down the diesel fueled fire.

The Ram Mega cab chassis for our new brush truck is due to be in tomorrow, June 11, 2013. From there, it will go to Patriot Fire for upfitting and then to Bolton Graphx in Cecilton for lettering. We look for it to be in service around August 1st. Last week, a few members of the new Engine Committee went to the Pierce factory in Wisconsin for the pre-construction engineering trip. They settled a few small details, decided how the compartments will be set up and finalized the graphics layout. We have attached a representation of the graphics. It features the new crew door logo / design, a waving American Flag in the front grille and a Maryland flag with a large 3 on the rear roll up door.

Thanks to a very generous donation left in the name of local citizens, at the first meeting in April, the Board of Directors made several significant purchasesTanker 3, a 1994 White/GMC/Volvo will be getting a new 1250 GPM Pump, new front bumper and tank valves, and a Jacobs Engine Brake. The current pump was transferred to the existing chassis from the old Tanker 3, a 1984 International. Patriot Fire will be completing the work. Also, our 1988 Ford Brush Truck will be getting replaced. We have ordered a 2013 Dodge Mega Cab with a Cummins Turbo Diesel. The skid unit that was purchased in 2008 will be getting transferred and new boxes and a rear firefighting step will be installed. Patriot Fire will also be completing the work for the new Brush 3. With the current economy and the limited funding that we get from state and local governments, donations like this are essential to the everyday operation of local fire companies. We thank everyone for the support and we look forward to seeing our loyal followers at the upcoming functions. Be sure to follow us on Facebook and check the calendar to the left for details.

As temperatures warm up and we enter spring, many people will choose to dispose of yard debris by open air burning. Statistics show that in 2012, there were 2.5 million human caused "wildland" fires in the United States. Although the number is unknown, many of these were undoubtedly caused by "controlled burns". If you choose to do have a controlled burn at your residence or property, we encourage you to practice good fire safety. 1. Do not use accelerants2. Have a fire extinguisher or garden hose nearby3. Know what you are burning (no tires, plastic, aerosol cans, etc)4. Follow your local ordinances for permits5. Never leave the fire unattended. If the fire gets out of your control, do not hesitate to call 911.In Kent County, burn permits can be obtained by contacting the Kent County Health Department. You will have to pay a small fee and they will come inspect your burn site. Reminder >>> burning without a permit may subject you to a fine or jail time!!Finally, if you have something that you need to burn and you do not feel comfotable doing it yourself, contact your local fire company. Most fire companies will conduct the burn for you and use it as training time.
