WSFD assists ESFD with Dwelling Fire
On the morning of July 20, Western Salisbury was dispatched along with Eastern Salisbury Fire Department for a report of dwelling fire. The caller was a neighbor and reported seeing smoke coming from the house. Police arrived first on scene and confirmed a working fire. The call was upgraded to a second alarm; however, the fire was able to be quickly controlled and all companies not on scene where requested to recall. Photos of the incident can be found on the T&C Photography website.
WSFD and ESFD Battle a Forest Fire on South Mountain
On Wednesday, April 29, Western Salisbury was dispatched with Eastern Salisbury Fire Department for a reported brush fire. The fire grew quickly due to the dry and windy conditions. Agencies from both Lehigh and Northampton counties were called to provide support. Crews were in operation for upwards of five hours to bring the fire under control. A helicopter and fixed wing airplane were also on scene to provide water drops from the air. More photos of the incident can be found on Nester Video Production's Facebook Page.
WSFD Provides Mutual Aid for Eastern Salisbury and Lower Macungie
On the night of February 17, Western Salisbury was dispatched with Eastern Salisbury Fire Department for a reported dwelling fire. WSFD arrived and provided support in the initial fire attack. A few days later, WSFD was dispatched to support Lower Macungie Fire Department with another dwelling fire. Both incidents reached second alarms.

WSFD Hard at Work in the New Year
Not quite two months into the new year and the volunteers at Western Salisbury have already been called into action several times. In January, WSFD assisted Emmaus Fire Department (Station 7) with a dwelling fire. Shortly after, the roles were reversed as Station 7 assisted Western Salisbury with another dwelling fire. WSFD also assisted Eastern Salisbury (Station 20) with a structure fire earlier this month. Along with these three major incidents, WSFD ran 30 calls in January and already has over 20 calls for February. Photos of these incidents can be found on the T&C Photography website, as well as Nester Video Production's Facebook Page, and Newsworking's facebook page.
