Incidents for which we were dispatched (see Note 1)Hide

1995
Vehicle Fire, 230 Market St (Box 22-19)
Detail >>
Engine 22 was dispatched for a report of a car on fire at the corner of North Street and Market Street in Lykens Boro. Engine 22 responded with a crew of four and arrived on scene to find a small compact car with darkened windows and full of smoke. The crew pulled a handline and opened the passenger compartment. An occupant was found inside the car. He was removed, un-harmed. There was no fire and the patient refused medical treatment.
1996
Tire Fire, Mahontango Industries (Box Jun Co)
Detail >>
Engine 22 was requested by County dispatch to respond to Juniata County, Susquehanna Township, on Route 104 to the site of a large used tire fire at Mahontango Industries. Engine 22 responded class one with a total crew of ten and took approximately one hour to arrive on location. The Engine was staged and the crew was sent to the scene with hand tools to assist numerous other companies from several counties with suppression of thousands of burning tires spread out over many acres. The crew spent several hours working the scene until relieved by other fresh crews brought in from other counties.
2005
Smoke in a structure, 601 Main Street (Box 22-1)
Detail >>
A first alarm assignment was dispatched for a report of smoke in an apartment on the second floor of the former Reiner Apartments on the square in Lykens. Engine-22 and Truck-22 responded with full crews and Chief-22 and Chief 22-1 responded POV to the scene. Shortly after arrival of Company-22's apparatus, chief 22-1 held the box to Company-22 and canceled all other units. Investigation determined that the caller smelled the heat in their apartment coming on for the first time in the fall and heard an intermittently beeping smoke alarm with a weak battery in the second floor hallway. The combination of the heat odor and the audible alarm caused the concern. After removing the battery from the smoke detector, the company went available. The occupants were advised to replace the battery as soon as possible. Note: This was the first call for the new Sutphen Tower Ladder.
