On Saturday, September 22nd, the members of the ECVFD traveled to the Baltimore County FRA for a day of training burns at the academy’s burn building. The members participated in several evolutions designed to simulate various structure fire emergencies likely to be encountered during the course of department operations. Thanks to all who attended, and a special thanks to Otts, Mary, Kathy, and the others who provided lunch for the members at the training!
37 Box dwelling fire - Sept 25
The Friday night duty crew was sleeping peacefully, having run no calls since midday Friday, when the bells turned out the engine company for an investigation of an unknown type fire in the area of Annapolis Rd. and Florida Ave. The engine crew noticed a strong odor of burning in the neighborhood immediately upon leaving the station, and encountered a cloud of smoke drifting across Michigan Ave. Upon arriving at Annapolis and Florida, the crew found nothing, so they proceeded down Florida Ave to attempt to locate the source of the smoke. The crew arrived at 2808 Florida Ave, finding the homeowner standing in the front yard spraying his garden hose at fire burning through the roof of the home. The box was struck as the engine crew stretched from the hydrant and advanced a handline into the dwelling, encountering high heat and heavy fire conditions throughout the attic of the one-story structure. The crew, supported by ECVFD's second engine, as well as other units from the 2nd Battalion, made a quick knock on the well advanced fire, limiting the fire damage to the attic and roof area of the home. Another excellent job by the ECVFD crew to protect the neighborhood in which we serve!!

The patient, who was unconscious, had multiple serious and significant injuries. Appropriate treatment was rendered on the scene, and the patient was transported as a priority 1 to Shock Trauma. The car occupant sustained minor injuries and was transported as well.
MSFA 118th Annual Convention & Conference 2010 - June 16th
The English Consul had a great presence at the Maryland State Firemen's Association convention and conference in Ocean City this year. We had full crews for the Engine, Medic unit, Juniors' Bus, and the Utility. Everyone was dressed up to the occasion and represented our company in a professional manner. Despite the excruciating heat, the juniors were phenomenal walking down the parade. They deservingly won first place for "Beast Appearing Junior or Cadet Company". Engine-372 also won an "Honorable Mention" of "Best Appearing Engine 1250 GPM & Over". We are proud of our juniors and members who are sincerely dedicated to convey a professional image to the public.
Wire Entanglement Training - May 29th
Every day is a training day at our company. We have scheduled and random training events. On May 29, we held a company training drills on fire entanglement. We simulated a fire entangle rescue in our engine bay. We had supervisors and safety instructor guide the training. At the end of training, we critiqued the pros and cons of the training. Overall, the training was satisfactory and everyone did a great job.
