LARGE AREA WOODS AND BRUSH FIRE IN PEMBERTON TOWNSHIP - REHAB 13 REQUESTED FOR PERSONNEL SUPPORT LATER IN THE DAY ON WEDNESDAY
Wednesday, June 22, 2016 
-
Pemberton Township and the NJ Forest Fire Service were engaged in a fire suppression on the property of join base Ft. Dix - McGuire - Lakehurst during the afternoon on Wednesday. The fire was located in Pemberton Township on the Ft. Dix side of the base near the "range" and involved more than 45 acres of pine-land and brush in this area.

Along with the fire fighting units on the fire, Rehab 439 was on scene for many hours providing liquids, shade, and active cooling with their "Kore Kooler" chairs. Rehab 13 was dispatched to provide additional support and especially hot foods for the 1st Responders on the scene.

Rehab 13 was dispatched at 1725 hrs. and arrived in staging at 1839 hrs. and went in service with Level II Rehab support. All rehab units responded including 1388 and the Kawasaki "Mule" which was used to transport liquids and hot foods to areas that would have been hard to reach via foot. All sectors can be covered by the use of this UTV off road vehicle.

At 2048 hrs. Rehab 13 was released from the scene and all units returned to station to re-supply. During an extensive operation such as this, it may take our personnel an additional hour to make the units ready for the next assignment. This occurred at 2245 hrs. when all units were ready for service.

Due to the crew members being so hands on the whole time we were only able to photograph the Command and Rehab sector and did not go to have the ability to view the other components of the evolution. 

Units that were on scene included: Lindenwold Fire, Virtua EMS, Cooper EMS, Cherry Hill Fire Department EMS, Lindenwold Police, Pine Hill Police, Gloucseter Township EMS and Police, Gloucester County and Camden County Sheriff Department, Camden and Gloucester County Prosecutors Offices, Gloucester County and Gloucester Township command vehicles, and Cooper and Virtua Paramedics. Camden County Communications provided the Command Post, Field Comm I, OEM 3 (the air conditioned bus) for resting personnel, and an air conditioned bus from Gloucester County was also supplied. And I don't want to forget the "quad copter" drone for aerial views of the scene.
