The morning began with 13 members standing by at the 9th annual Emergency Preparedness Day hosted by Upper Macungie, North Whitehall, and South Whitehall Townships. With multiple fire units from the three townships committed a joint response was set up, which included Engine 311 staffed with six.
Around 11AM a reported structure fire was dispatched to the Speedway gas station in North Whitehall Township. Engine 311 arrived stretching a 1 3/4" line requesting tankers begin establishing a water supply. No fire was found and crews cleared shortly afterwards.
Around 2PM a reported dwelling fire was dispatched to the 1600blk of Travers Rd in Upper Macungie Township. Engine 311 arrived, had our own hydrant, and stretched an 1 3/4" line to the side of the house where crews found a smoldering outside fire. Another hose line was stretched to the front door. No extension was found inside.
Members cleared Emergency Preparedness day around 4PM and wanted to thank everyone who came out
