Sunday turned out to be a busy day for the FLFD. The fire department started the day off with fire alarm activation on Paiute drive. Crews checked the home and the activation was due to a system malfunction, as crews were backing into the fire house communications dispatched the fire department to respond to the Nature Preserve for a dog in the water. Crews responded with to the nature preserve with Marine 1 and 3 along with Res3cue, Utility 344, and Ladder 342. Upon arrival of the FLFD the dog was out of the water and with its owner.
As crews were clearing the Nature Preserve Communications dispatched the fire department to respond mutual aid to Waldwick for a working structure fire. Chief Dodd (330), Assist Chief Bohny (340), Ladder 342 (LT Devenney) with 4 responded. Crews responded to the PSEG substation for the multi alarm fire. Ladder 342 was set up for master stream operations and operated for over 9 hours until the fire was under control. Later on into the incident Utility 344 (Capt Donch) with 5 came to relieve the Ladder crew. Great work to all the agencies operating on scene.
