During morning rounds today the new 800 mhz Tower Site was paid a visit. This site is part of the new Adams County Radio Project that has been in the works for years. The site is located in the 27-6 Box almost 1 mile from the hard road. Other Towers are also in the works in the first due area and should be completed hopefully by Spring. More info to come…..
Box 27-1 was sounded for the Storage Building fire in the 500 Block of Buchanan Valley Rd. Engine Tanker, Engine and the Fire Chief responded to find a fire running the exterior wall spreading into the roofing material. ET-27 placed a pre-connected line in service and made a quick knock of the fire. The Box was quickly down graded to “27”. Crews opened up the area and wetted down the area.
Wishing all our friends and family a Happy New Year ! Be careful celebrating tonight
