Run #2 for the day was dispatched at 0917 hrs for the 400 block of Garden Avenue in the City of Camden. City fire units were operating at a dwelling fire that was a 2 1/2 – story occupancy that was reported to be loaded with storage (Collier’s Mansion) making the access treacherous and the fire load higher than normal for this type of wood frame building. All companies on location were in service for approximately 2 hrs before requesting the rehab to be dispatched.
Rehab 13 got the assignment at 0917 hrs and responded with (2) apparatus and (4) personnel. Access to the scene was quite delayed due to the amount of 5″ supply hose on the street that had to be moved by personnel to allow us to take the position we were assigned. Once set up Rehab 13 provided (1) rest room, (32) bottles of MVP, (22) bottles of water, (25) breakfast sandwiches, (1) box of Famous Amos cookies, (1) box of granola bars, (6) cooling cotton towels, (2) 6′ tables, and (4) cup holders.
Rehab 13 remained on the scene until being released by Command at 1123 hrs.
An old friend Battalion Chief A. Magee was on the scene and helped get us to our assigned place on the fire-ground. Thanks Andy.
