From Saturday evening into Sunday, Upper Merion Township Volunteers and Volunteers from the Penn Wynne Fire Company staffed both Squad 47 and Rescue 21 so that members from The Fairmount Engine Company #2 in Norristown could attend their annual banquet.
Together, both crews enjoyed a quiet uneventful night until Sunday morning when both units were dispatched to a Fire Alarm activation at the Laura Lane Apartments. As crews were responding, the assignment was upgraded to a building fire with a report of smoke in the apartment. Upon arrival, crews from Quint and Engine 27 confirmed the source of the smoke to be burnt food and the assignment was held to the units on location.
We would like to extend our appreciation to the members of The Fairmount Engine Company #2 for the invitation and hospitality. Thanks guys and we’ll see you again soon!
