This month MTVFC has been dispatched to the Holiday Inn Express twice for an automatic alarm. Each time they have been proven negative or a “false alarm”. Each time Engine 75 connects to the FDC and position the Tower for roof operations. By preplanning and proper positioning apparatus it becomes muscle memory.
Today was no different.
Today at 9:14 MTVFC was dispatched for an Automatic Alarm. Shortly after dispatch Bucks County Communications advised Chief 57 of reports of a smoke condition on the second floor. The assignment was upgraded to a Box alarm bringing multiple mutual aide companies from Bucks and Montgomery Counties.
Crews where on scene for about an hour trying to determine the cause of the smoke condition. The Pennsylvania State Police Fire Marshals office is investigating the fire.
Don’t be complacent!
