Friday, January 10th, 2014
Approx 1645hrs the Branchburg Rescue Squad just clearing a second call with North Branch and Readington Fire were doing paperwork back at station when overheard on the radio Tower Ladder 32 reporting large column of black smoke coming from the Neshanic area of town. Chief M. Hoffman with 74 Car 1 immediately responded, while enroute on Route 202 requested dispatch Station 74 for full response for working fire at Keystone Switching Station unknown on of any injuries. Arriving on location Chief established Route 202 EMS Branch at the front gate and directed incoming BLS and Rehab units to the front lawn of the facility. Incident command advised and no reported injuries and requested EMS Branch to move to command post just inside the facility. Chief and Car relocated while Lt Allaway and Sgt. Mikaliunas directed incoming mutal aid BLS to staging on the highway and coordinated the efforts to setup "Rehab" area with tent and heaters. Mutual aid assistance was requested on dispatch bring 2 BLS from Hillsborough (79 Rescue) and 2 BLS from Somerville (54 Rescue) to assist in Rehab operations, while Bradley Gardens (39 Rescue) staffed a BLS in our station to cover calls in Branchburg. Personel on scene were instructed to stand by in vehicles and out of elements as much as possible until operations started.
EMS Branch monitored fire operations and coordinated with "Rehab" area to make sure a location was designated for incoming food and warm beverages for responders provided by Neshanic Fire Ladies Auxilary. 74 Rescue 1 with Sgt. Marago was requested to scene to provide lighting and power to units working on location. As operations commenced units remained ready to assist if needed. Incident Command confirmed that fire was extinguished. The BLS on scene mutal aid BLS crews were released with thanks at that time as fire units were beginning to be released. Apporx half hour after that our cover assignment was released by Chief M. Hoffman as Branchburg BLS/Duty crew was available to cover calls in town. All EMS/Rescue units were released by Incident Command. EMS Branch was terminated apporx 2330 hrs.
While there wasnt much going on medical wise at the scene the potential for need was there with the single digit tempatures, multiple fire companies bringing mutilple firefighters to the scene the organziations stood by ready if needed. Providing a warm place for responders to get out of the elements was "Rehab" enough for this type of incident. Branchburg Rescue staffed all vehicles from the station which included 3 BLS, 1 Heavy Rescue, 1 Special Ops/Rehab, and 1 Chiefs vehicle
