On Sunday afternoon, Stations 85 and 86, GTEMS and Medics were dispatched to Sicklerville Road for a reported crash with entrapment. Initial reports indicated up to four people trapped and Rescue 84 was added to the assignment. Rescue 84 responded with five personnel and worked with units from Stations 86 and 85 to extricate patients, while Engine 842 handled a helicopter landing zone. Unfortunately, four victims from the crash succumbed to their injuries.
Around 3:30 a.m. Friday, Station 84 was dispatched as part of a box assignment to Station 86's local for a reported house fire. First-arriving companies reported a well-involved townhouse fire and led off with heavy water lines to knock back the fire. The fire was brought under control within 30 minutes. *Picture courtesy of Gloucester Township Fire District 6.*
On Thursday evening, Station 84 and mutual aid companies were dispatched to the Cherrywood Apartments for a reported apartment fire. 8401 (Chief Cipriano) arrived to find a two-story garden-style apartment building with smoke showing from the second floor and struck the all hands box. Engines 841 and 842 arrived simultaneously, established a water supply and stretched hose lines to the second floor. The fire was quickly extinguished and placed under control.
