Sunday Runs

At 1:43am on Sunday, the USRFD was dispatched to assist the Saddle River FD set up a medivac landing zone while their crews, alongside Allendale FD rescue operated at the scene of a motor vehicle crash. Chief Vierheilig, Asst Chief Rauch, and Engine 1231 responded and set up the LZ on a field in Saddle River. Once the helicopter touched down, the patient was loaded in and it took off to a local trauma center. Once clear, all units returned.  Later  at 4:16 pm the USRFD was dispatched to a home on Overbrook Road for a reported chimney fire. Chief Vierheilig called into service immediately and requested a ladder truck out of Ramsey. USRPD and Chief Vierheilig arrived on scene to find heavy smoke coming from the chimney. Engine 1232, Tanker 1233, 2 Ramsey Chiefs and, Ramsey Ladder 442 all responded. Crews used fire extinguishers to extinguish the fire, and overhauled the fire box in the fire place. Once the fire was extinguished the home was turned over to the homeowner and units returned. Thanks Ramsey, New Jersey Volunteer Fire Department for the assist!
