Box 15 headed to the northern edge of Franklin County today for a 8 unit 2 story apartment building fire, Worthington Battalion chief (Bn101) was among the 1st to arrival and quickly upgraded it to a 2nd alarm.

Box 15 responded with Rehab 2 from Washington Township and arrived on scene within the hour to set up a rehab area near the front of the building.    Our crews fanned out and spent the next 45 minutes handing out five boxes of bottled water and one gallon of Sqwincher.  Our crews cleared the scene and returned to quarters to await the next run.

Box 15 responded to Norwich Township this afternoon around 430p.  The 1st calls came in around 415p of a garage fire that was extending to the home.   NTFD crews arrived quickly but the fire had already gotten into the walls of the house near the garage.  Box 15 crews arrived to find 5″ supply lines stretched @ 2500 feet down the road to battle the fire.

Box 15 crews arrived quickly and set up a rehab area for the crews on the front bumper of ladder 81, we distributed four cases of water, one gallon of Sqwincher and a few granola bars.

Box 15 crews were on scene for two hours and were thanked many times by the crews on scene

February 27 – Box 15 provided rehab services for Cystic Fibrosis Foundations “Battle of the Badges”.  With more than 325 police officers and firefighters – from as far away as Washington D.C. participating, Box 15 played a vital role by staffing hydration stations at all relay points (for climb teams) and at the 40 floor for the solo climbers.  During this deployment, we dispensed 728 bottles of water, used #250 pounds of ice and dedicated 156 hours of volunteer labor to the event. 

This is our second year to support this worthwhile event.  We have already committed to CFF for next year.
