CHEERY HILL HAZ MAT AND FIRE INCIDENT GOES ALL HANDS FRIDAY EVENING
Friday, February 3, 2017 
-
At 1710 hrs. Rehab 13 was dispatched on the "all hands" box for Hollywood Avenue off of Route 38 on the west side of Cherry Hill. Arriving companies had a report of a burn injury that quickly escalated into a fire involving a hazardous material release inside the plant.

Arriving companies stretched an attack line to the seat of the fire and a water supply was established from a hydrant just south of the fire building on Hollywood Avenue.

Upon arrival an "explosion" occurred and heavy smoke was seen at the roof line. As a precaution the foam and hazardous materials task forces were notified to respond to the scene and were staged on Route 38. However, Camden Fire Department's Rescue 1 and Haz. Mat unit did respond directly into the incident. The fire was knocked down quickly and most of the extra resources were made available in a short time span.

Rehab 13 responded to the scene with (3) apparatus and (10) personnel and were staged on Hollywood Avenue and then assigned a position in the parking lot across from the fire building. Rehab 13 (1385) began hot food preparation and set up hot and cold liquids. U1386 deployed the heated Zumro tent to provide shelter for all civilians and 1st Responders.

One worker was transported to the hospital with minor injuries.

Rehab 13 was on scene from 1730 hrs. until 1955  hrs.

-
Last evening the members of the Deer Park Fire Company/Rehab 13 were excited to accompany Santa Claus on  his annual pre-Christmas visit to the children and families of the Old Orchard section of eastern Cherry Hill - the former 1st due area for Station 13-8.

This is a time honored tradition that has been done since the 1950's in the old fire district 3 area by the Deer Park Fire Company and the Cherry Hill Fire Department.

It also special in that we are able to drive Santa around in the first fire truck placed in service by the Deer Park Fire Company that was originally purchased in 1948 from Cheltenham Township, PA company #4 - the C.H. & L. company.

The Mack is now 77 years old and still running well.

Thanks to the crew for a safe and successful evening.

See you all next year.
