Members are reminded that our monthly meeting is April 14th, 2010 at 7:30pm.  Anyone wishing to become a member can come up and get an application at that time.

Over the weekend of April 10th and 11th, Lincoln VFRC was requested to Broadlawn Drive in Elizabeth Twp with our tanker to assist with a house that had an electrical and smoke condition inside.  Both tankers responded and stoodby on scene.  Engine 184 was also requested by command to standby at a hydrant.  While on scene there, another call come in for an accident with entrapment at Liberty Way and Virginia Drive.  140 Command released 184 Tanker 2 and Engine and they responded to that along with Ambulance 610 from the station.

On Sunday, Tanker 184-1 and a few members attended a structural burn class.  While they were there, a call came in for a brush fire endangering a structure on Mable Drive.  184 Engine and 184 Tanker 2 responded to that call and was assisted by Blaine Hill 140 Station 2, Liberty Station 183, and Port Vue Station 237.

In the late evening of Friday April 2nd, Lincoln VFRC received a call for a brush fire in the woods above Fuerher Drive.  Liberty Station 183 was added to the assignment and also responded.  Tanker 184-1 was first on scene but due to the terrain was not able to reach the fire.  Chief 184 and a local resident walked back to the fire scene and found a fire approximately 50’x50′ in size burning over a hill.  Engine 184 was able to drive back through the woods via an access road to get to the fire and deployed a 1 3/4″ trash line.  183 crews assisted on the scene and deployed foam on the area to fully extinguish the area.  Port Vue Station 237 was activated for standby while 184 and 183 operated on scene.
