Busy Day for Avondale Members

AFC had a busy end to the month of April due to multiple calls caused by the heavy winds and rain that swept through Chester County.
Fire calls began coming in at 1250 hours for multiple trees and wires down. Chief 23 had Avondale Command for the afternoon and managed crews operating throughout our district on various calls. Throughout the day, crews responded to multiple automatic fire alarms, a traffic light malfunction, electrical fires inside, and multiple calls of trees and wires on fire or down on the ground. In total, AFC responded to 19 calls in an 8 hour period. AFC apparatus remained staffed and staged around our district to ensure a prompt and quick response to all calls throughout the day. Due to such a high demand of responses requiring PECO crews, many roads around the area were temporarily shut down to ensure the safety of the community. We appreciate your cooperation in finding alternate routes of travel during these closures.

Additionally, we would like to thank the Kennett Fire Company for assisting us in responding to calls in our area while crews were busy on the scene of prior emergencies.

Units: Chief 23, Deputy 23, Engine 23-1, Rescue 23, Squad 23, Traffic 23, TCT23
 
Mutual Aid: Engine 24 (Kennett) and SCCRPD
