2018 has proved to be anything but slow for the EVFD. Over the course of several hours in the early morning of New Years Day, 137 Rescue responded to 4 vehicle accidents on Interstate 376. Later in the day 137 Rescue and Engine responded into Wilkins Twp for a furnace on fire inside a large commercial building. While the Rescue crew remained on scene in Wilkins, 137 Engine responded into West Homestead for a possible dwelling fire.
Early this morning 137 Engine and Rescue responded into the Borough of Braddock Hills for a working house fire. Crews operated on scene for an extended period of time.
Throughout the day as members worked to get equipment back in service from the fire, 137 Rescue returned to Interstate 376 for a vehicle down a small embankment and into several trees.
