This past weekend (3/14 & 15)was a busy one for our volunteers. On Saturday evening, we responded to an alarm for a possible brush fire which wound up being a large smoldering pile of logs, tree limbs and brush in front of a property located on South Highland Road. Firefighters were on scene for a short amount of time and fully extinguished the brush pile in order to prevent the fire from spreading.

Later that night we responded for an automatic fire alarm call on Bluejay Place, which fortunately turned out to be a false alarm.

On Sunday, we started our “day off” in the very early hours, at 1:45am we were dispatched to the area of the Bryant Pond to assist the local sheriffs and police department with the removal of a patient from in the wooded area for medical care.

We eventually had to opportunity to sleep for a while until we received another automatic fire alarm at 10:00am on Peekskill Hollow Road in the area of the TSP.

Later that afternoon we were dispatched to the Putnam Valley Town Camp for a reported brush fire caused by downed power lines. Due to the rough terrain, dry conditions and wind, we spent approximately 3 hours on scene to fully contain and extinguish that fire.

While members were on the scene of the brush fire, we were dispatched to the North bound travel lanes of the TSP for a motor vehicle accident with a reported rollover. We were able to establish a crew and respond to that incident along with mutual aid from Kent Fire Department.

Our busy Sunday was not over yet!at around 11:00pm members were dispatched to a reported structure fire in the Lake Peekskill section of town. Upon arrival it was determined to be a washing machine fire which was knocked down due to the quick response and action of the dispatched New York State Police Trooper to the scene. The homeowner was transported to NewYork-Presbyterian Hudson Valley Hospital by Putnam Valley Volunteer Ambulance Corps due to smoke inhalation. Members operated on scene for about an hour and were back in service shortly after midnight.
