Busy Monday for ETFD

Monday, April 6, 2015  The Exeter Township Fire Department stayed busy with four calls for service. First was for an accident on the route 422 bypass. After that, Tanker 25 and Rescue/Engine 25 were dispatched to Robeson Township for a working house and brush fire. Brush 25, Brush 25-1, and ATV 25 were also dispatched. While five fire units were out, Rescue 25 and Engine/Tanker 25 made the response to Shed Road in Union Township for a reported explosion and working fire. With Exeter resources almost depleted and cover companies enroute to cover Exeter, units were dispatched to Sonic in Exeter for reported fire. Tower 25 made the response along with multiple mutual aid units. Good job to everyone involved. Exeter had eight fire units on the street along with the Chiefs. Thanks to Mike DeTurck for the Photos!
