Rehab Training Turns Into Rehab Assigment

Wednesday, February 29, 2012 Shortly after 19:30 hours members had gather at Station 439 for this year's first Special Operations Drill. The topic for the drill was Emergency Services Rehabilitation. Over the past several months we have received several pieces of new equipment from the county to be placed on our new rehab truck and to be utilized on fire scenes, MCI's, accidents and any other large scale incident where emergency services rehabilitation may be needed. At 20:48 hours as members where in the middle of reviewing the equipment Task Force 4310, Stations 281, 172, 171, Quint 251, and RIT 191 were dispatched to 50 summit drive for a dwelling fire. Ambulance 4394, Rescue 4399, Ambulance 4392, Ambulance 4391, and 4393 were all on the street moments after dispatch. Chief 4300 arrived on location with nothing showing and then reported he had fire in the walls on the Bravo Charlie corner of the home. With this report Deputy Chief 4310 placed "All companies in service" and established CP 43. Ambulance 4394 and Ambulance 4392 arrived and staged in neighboring driveways. Rescue 4399 arrived and was placed in the front of the home to provided lighting to the scene and also setup rehab. Ambulance 4391 and 4393 arrived and staged on Anne Drive. Fire department units were able to make a quick knock down of the fire holding it to the Bravo Charlie corner of the home. Once rehab was established TRS personnel processed several fire crews through it. At 22:52 hours all Station 439 units were released from the fire ground and returned to Station 439 to clean up what was left out from the drill and to restock Rescue 4399 with rehab supplies. Station 439 responded with a total of 20 volunteers.

End of One Era & Beginning of Another

February 17, 2012 Today was a historic day for the Tabernacle Rescue Squad. For the first time since the founding of the squad we will not be based out of a station on Hawkins Road. At 12:00PM on Friday, February 17, 2012, we moved our base of operations to our new headquarters located at 134 New Road. This move is the realization of a dream long sought after by the membership.

Several members gathered this afternoon, some taking a vacation day from their normal jobs, to help with the move. In all it took several hours to get all the essential equipment and supplies moved from the Hawkins Road station to the New Road headquarters. In addition members have spent countless hours at the facility over the past several months preparing for today.

As most people are probably aware of now the Hawkins Road station had become to small for our organization as we continued to grow and expand our services to meet the needs of our ever changing community. As we move forward with our transition plan we will also be working on cleaning up the Hawkins Road station and turning it over to the Township of Tabernacle for their use.

We would like to thank the community for your support over the years. Just as we have served you from the Hawkins Road location for over 60 years we look forward to serving you from the new headquarters for another 60+!

Finally we would like to let everyone know that plans are in the works for an official ceremony to commemorate our move and allow the community to tour our wonderful new facility. 

 

Are You Ready For An Emergency?

When seconds count, it is important that emergency services are able to find your location. If EMS, Fire, or Police are responding to your home; visible address numbers will save time and can save lives. Please inspect your address markings with a critical eye to make sure that we will be able to find your home.

Why Are Addresses so Important?

  • An accurate and easily visible address is a vital element in locating a home or business rapidly in an emergency requiring EMS, Fire, Police, and other life and/or safety services.
  • In an emergency, precious seconds or minutes could be lost if EMS, police, or fire personnel are unable to identify an address properly.
  • When someone has a heart attack or a house fire, MINUTES make a difference!  EMT's, Firefighters, and paramedics depend on clearly marked address numbers when responding to emergencies.
  • Address numbers facilitate rapid response by police to an incident that can possibly save a life or prevent a crime from being committed.
  • A clearly marked address also promotes efficient mail and parcel delivery and prevents confusion in locating businesses and residences.
  • The International Fire Code requires that all residential and commercial buildings have approved address numbers.

Where Should Address Numbers Be Posted?

  • Address numbers must be posted in a conspicuous place over or near the principal entrance. If the entrance cannot be easily seen from the nearest adjoining street, the address numbers must be placed in another conspicuous place on the house or building so that the address numbers can easily be seen from the nearest adjoining street.
  • If the home cannot be easily seen or is greater than 50 feet from the nearest adjoining street, the address numbers must be placed on a portion of the site that is clearly visible and no greater than 20 feet from the street.
  • Numbers must either be illuminated during periods of darkness, or reflective, so they are easily seen at night
  • While painting address numbers on curbs is a useful means of identification, your primary means of posting addresses should be on your home or business because parked cars can block your curb numbers.
  • Address numbers shall be placed in a position that is plainly legible and visible from the street or road fronting the property.
  • Address numbers shall contrast with their background.
  • Address numbers/letters shall be Arabic numerals or alphabet letters. Numbers/letters shall be a minimum of 4 inches high with a minimum stroke of one-half inch.

Where Can I Find Address Numbers?

  • You can buy address numbers at any home improvement or hardware store. Many sign companies listed in the Yellow Pages have sources for home, business or building address numbers. Using a search engine on the Internet for “Address numbers” also provides options.
  • If You Share A Private Driveway With Several Homes…
  • Post all house numbers at the entrance to the driveway and be sure to post numbers at the front entrance to each home.
  • If the road splits off into different directions, post a directional sign to indicate where each address is located.
