Frankford Response on Multiple Alarms! - Sta 83
Wednesday, April 6, 2005
On Wednesday April 6, 2005 at 16:35 Hrs. the Frankford Volunteer Fire Company was alerted for an automatic fire alarm at the Verizon Building on Washington St. in Millsboro. Millsboro VFC's engine was first on scene and determined that there was no emergency. From there we were redirected to a second brush fire in Millsboro VFC's district on Mount Holly Road. After clearingn that incident Engine 76-1 was redirected back to Sta 83 (Millsboro) to do a cover up assignment. While waiting we recieved another alarm for a venting propane tank in Avolon Park. We responded with Engine 76-1, Rescue/Engine 76-3, and Lewes Engine 82-3, Brush 82-0. Upon our arrival we found a tank that had vented, but was now under control. Rescue/Engine 76-3 was directed to return to the station to relieve Engine 88-1 that was providing a cover up assignment to our station. Engine 76-1 returned to station 83. Another alarm was sounded for a vehicle fire on Rt. 20 in the area of Workman's Store. We started a response along with Dagsboro VFC Engine 73-6 and Brush 73-0. We were cancelled from this call due to a closer unit in the area becoming available. Once Millsboro VFC units became available we were released to return to our station
