Back to Back Afternoon Runs

Yesterday, the USRFD was requested to back to back emergencies. First, at the Extended Stay on Route 17 for a reported brush fire. Chief Vierheilig and Engine 1232 (OIC FF Andrews) responded. Crews extinguished the fire with a booster line. While clearing the brush fire, dispatch called the USRFD for service again for a possible run away boiler at a home on Fox Hill. Chief Vierheilig, Engine 1231 (OIC FF Redmond) and Engine 1232 (OIC FF Andrews) responded. Crews checked and shut system down. PSEG was contacted and told to respond. Once clear, all units returned to HQ.
