Visitors to the Junior League of the Lehigh Valley’s 5th annual Trucks & More event Saturday, April 30, at the Allentown Fairgrounds line up for a chance to sit in the Western Salisbury Volunteer Fire Company’s aerial truck and pretend to be firefighters. The event, sponsored by the Lehigh Valley Health Network, provided an opportunity for children to explore heavy equipment and meet the people who build, protect and serve the community. Large trucks, construction equipment, police SWAT and emergency vehicles, and a Lehigh Valley Health evac helicopter, were on display for an up-close look that would not otherwise be possible in real-world working circumstances.
At 9:25 AM on April 25th, Western Salisbury FD Station 31 along with Eastern Salisbury Station 20 and Fountain Hill Station 34 were dispatched to the area of 1784 Elinor St., in Salisbury Township, for a reported dwelling fire. Salisbury Township Police Department units quickly arrived on location updating responding fire units that it was a well-involved dwelling fire. As crews arrived on location, they learned that the occupant had gotten out of the residence with the two family dogs.
WSFD Engines 31-11 and 31-12 both responded to the incident. Engine 31-11 was the third arriving unit on location and began a relay pumping operation to boost the water supply up a steep hill to the scene. WSFD crews assisted in initial fire suppression on location. The building was fully involved upon arrival and crews operated on the exterior of the structure only. Brush 31-61 also responded to assist with fire that was spreading to a heavily wooded area behind the scene. WSFD Firefighters remained on location throughout the incident and assisted in extensive salvage and overhaul operations as well as assisting the Lehigh County Special Operations Team with containing chemical run-off from the fire. Station 31 crews were released just prior to 1 in the afternoon. Photos above are courtesy of WFMZ 69 News and WSFD Members.
