Woodlawn recently purchased several pieces of vehicle and specialized rescue equipment, so Monday night's training was an opportunity for the team to get some hands-on time. Two automobile stabilization struts by a brand called Junkyard Dogs have been mounted on Tanker 3221 for us to support the township rescue company. Several different portable saws will be stored on Spill 3291; use of these devices was introduced by a program called Man Vs. Machine, which considers unusual patient rescue scenarios such as impalements, entanglement in small machinery and other complicated extrications. Funding for the equipment was in a grant from the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania. Assistant Chief Kish, Lieutenant Sommers, Lieutenant Decker and Engineer Schlier led two drills at the South Whitehall Auto Salvage, focused mostly on automobile stabilization and patient extrication. Thanks to Specialist Savkova and Firefighter Smith for the photos. ... See moreSee less

Early Thursday afternoon, Woodlawn volunteers were dispatched for an appliance fire in the Country Crossings neighborhood off Walbert Avenue. Engine 3212 responded, along with crews from Greenawalds Fire/Rescue 11 and Cetronia Volunteer Fire Department, and found an oven smoldering from food. While a supply and attack hose were each deployed, neither was charged or used, and the incident was managed easily and the residence was ventilated of smoke. The South Whitehall Township fire marshall responded to investigate afterward. Also responding to the scene were Whitehall Fire Department - Station 39 for their Rapid Intervention Team, and Cetronia Ambulance Corps. ... See moreSee less

Woodlawn is participating again this year by providing manpower and equipment for engine company operations. We'd like to thank Cetronia Ambulance Corps for coordinating and hosting a great program for our community's children!We're half way through the South Whitehall Township Emergency Services Youth Camp and the kids are having a blast, literally! Today they'll be doing some work with the bomb squad and getting a tour of the Emergency Communications Center! This free camp is offered to kids ages 12-16. It takes place every summer and teaches them the important role that public safety workers play in the community with the hope that they will pursue a fulfilling career in emergency services. Thank you to all the partners involved: South Whitehall Township Police Department, South Whitehall Township Emergency Management, Cetronia Volunteer Fire Department, Greenawalds Fire/Rescue 11, and Woodlawn Fire Department. ...

Despite the rain Monday evening, volunteers drilled this week on pumping and drafting. Engine 3212 and Tanker 3221 each carry pumps capable of discharging over 1,250 gallons per minute (gpm); the engine carries 500 gallons of water while the tanker has a 2,500 gallon capacity. In addition, most of South Whitehall Township is piped for fire hydrants, which offer a nearly unlimited supply of water and can be boosted in pressure by one or more of several Water Authority pumping stations throughout the township. However, in the event hydrants fail or Woodlawn provides mutual aid to rural areas, several tankers will carry water from a fill site to the fire scene and dump into a "portable pond," which an engine will draw water from in a process called drafting: the pump draws suction through a large, rigid hose in much the same way you'd drink through a straw. Since we rarely have to perform drafting, it's a valuable skill to refresh our pump operators on and for our firefighters to understand how to facilitate. ... See moreSee less

Monday night's training took Woodlawn volunteers to Roma Corporate Center for commercial building operations. Crews carried high-rise hose bundles and appliances, spare air cylinders and appropriate hand tools to a simulated sixth floor fire. The drill involved connecting to the standpipe one floor below, stretching the 200 feet of 2.5" attack hose to the fire floor and getting an idea of how much functional hose was left to advance into an imvolved office suite. Crews also discussed rescuing victims from upper floors, as well as considerations for on-site fire pump pressure and fire department connection (FDC) support for the system. Many thanks to Roma management for allowing us to practice in the building! ... See moreSee less

Woodlawn needs your help! Residents of our first-due coverage should start receiving fund drive mailers in the next few days.
