5/18/2018 – Reported Structure Fire: Trinity High School

Companies 20, 12, 14 and Tanker 172 were alerted to a reported structure fire at Trinity High School in Co. 12’s area. Engine 201 and 209 responded and once on scene were tasked by Incident Command with accessing the “C” side FDC connection and sending units to enter from the building’s side “C” to investigate the smoke condition. Crews determined that a faulty HVAC unit motor on the structure’s roof had failed, overheated and caused the structure to fill with smoke through the duct work. Once the source of the smoke had been determined and no active fire condition was present Incident Command released Co.20 units to return to service while other units ventilated the structure.

“Career on Wheels” Day at Mylan Park Elementary

SCVFD Engine 209, along with various other agencies from the county, participated in a “Career on Wheels” day at Mylan Park Elementary. Fire trucks from C0.20 and Co.13, police cruisers, maintenance vehicles, military vehicles, and HealthNet’s aircraft were just some of the vehicles present for the children to explore and ask questions about. Unfortunately, C0.20 was able to only participate briefly as E209 was dispatched to a reported structure fire at Trinity High School at the beginning of the event. VIEW WBOY’S COVERAGE OF THE EVENT HERE. SCVFD members were happy to participate in the event even though it was only for a limited time.

Bunkroom Transformation

Amazing transformation!!! Our members spent the last week updating the fire bunk room and what a dramatic difference they made. This bunk room is where our volunteer members stay overnight while on ‘duty crew’ and allows us to provide a faster response time to all the communities we serve.

Special thanks to Lowes in the Pierpont Center for their generous donation that allowed us to offset some of the cost of the materials you see here.

Do you want to volunteer with us and serve the citizens of Monongalia County? Give us a call, VISIT THE STATION or visit our RECRUITMENT or MEMBERSHIP pages for more information.
