04/09/07 35 W, 1 I - + 20 - 8 This Afternoon's Fire

Here's a panoramic perspective of this afternoon's two-alarmer on Meadow Mist Court. Engine 24, 23, 17, 18, 16, 4, Ladder 23 (first on scene?) and 16, Rescue 14 and 19, and Battalion 1 and 4. Plus all the other usual suspects. Click to enlarge:

Great pics Mike, and good work to everyone who was out there today. I do have a question for the Raleigh guys as well as all other out there. I noticed in one of the pics of the hydrant that the wrench and bag were left at the hydrant. I know at our department we preach on taking the wrench with you once you open the hydrant to prevent any ole’ person from just coming up and turning it back off. Do other departments have any rules or SOGs along these same lines, and what is everyones opinion on the matter?

i would like to see county units pulled to scenes like these or to back fill stations whenever a major working fire bangs out, i know the only reason bethesda is there is because they jumped it

Are you certain they jumped it? A lot of the apartment complexes in Brier Creek have them on the run card because they are closer than 23 as a second due.

99% sure, i heard bethesda on the scanner saying “we are checking in on a fire” bethesda and dhfd have a contract i believe that is the right side of 70 if you are driving towards durham, they don’t cross 70 often on auto dispatch
