Department Runs Commercial Building Fire 4 Alarm

Saturday, June 28, 2014  After a busy morning mutual aid call to Mechanicstown Fire District for a structure, Maybrook was toned out once again for a fire but this time it was in our First Due at Taylor Recycling Facility on Neelytown Rd. Upon arrival of Maybrook Car 3 there was a heavy black smoke conditions that could actually be seen for miles. Car 3 quickly had Orange 911 sound for a 2nd alarm fire. Engine 210 was the first due engine on scene and quickly established a water supply by the hydrant located right outside of Taylor Recycling, 2nd Due was Maybrook Tanker who came in to supply Engine 210 with water as well and also hook up to supply Montgomery FD Ladder truck.  A 3rd alarm was sounded and then once again for a tanker task force that came to a 4th alarm.  Coldenham set up a drafting site right in at Taylor at a pond and Campbell Hall had water supply also setup with water ponds for tankers to drop and go.  Fire was knocked down really quick by Maybrook and mutual aid companies.  Fire was accidentally started by material being lit from sparks coming from welding.

Maybrook FD Needs You!, To help us clear hydrants.

Sunday, February 16, 2014  Maybrook Fire Department needs help from the residents of the fire district. Winter snow storms have been upon and the region has been dumped recently with a lot of snow. We ask all residents to please help us and adopt a fire hydrant near your residents to clear out of snow. This doesn't fully eliminate our manpower to go out to shovel hydrants but it helps you and your neighbors in case of a house fire.

Snow on fire hydrants can be a hindrance to emergency workers — and the snow we've had of late has piled up on hydrants in some spots.

While it hasn't caused a problem yet for our fire department, We wwould like to reassure that our community is safe. 


Remember a fire doubles in size with each additional minute, Any minute we spend uncovering a hydrant is another minute we can't spend attacking a fire.

Even if the top of the hydrant is uncovered we still have to take the time to dig out all around it to connect the hose.

Residents can make a big difference by simply clearing hydrants of snow.

"If homeowners who have hydrants on their property can spend a few minutes, they can help us out by digging it out a little bit."

Thank you from the Maybrook FD.

     
Hydrant in our Fire District covered with snow barely seeing the top.
