Tuesday, May 29th, 2012 – Memorial Day weekend continued our busy stretch as early Friday evening we were dispatched to Duquesne for a tanker assist.  Duquesne had two occupied houses on fire.  Both Lincoln tankers responded shortly after dispatch and after arriving on scene setup a dump tank and tanker shuttle operations.  Monroeville Tanker 5 (195) was also on scene and was part of the shuttle along with Tanker 100 which was used as an additional water supply.

In the early afternoon of Saturday May 26th, Lincoln and Liberty crews were alerted to a working box truck fire on Lincoln Blvd between Mable Drive and Bellbridge Road in Lincoln.  Due to the location of the incident, Chief 184 also requested Elizabeth Borough be added to the alarm.  Crews arrived on the scene to find a work truck fully involved and extinguished the fire.  The Allegheny County Fire Marshal was called in to investigate the cause of the fire.

May 25th, 2012 – The department has been busy over the past month, and we wanted to give an update on some of the things that have been going on.

First, thank you to everyone that helped support our company by coming to our annual Mother’s Day dinner.

Congrats to Erica Perozich, Halie Perozich, Nathan Bertok, and Eric Baker for passing their Essentials Module 1 class.  They all also took and passed their Haz-Mat Awareness class as they all build toward completing their full essentials training.

On Friday May 11th, our department assisted Liberty with a fatal garage fire.  Our engine responded to the scene and our crew assisted with fire attack and overhaul.  Thanks to Liberty for the picture:
