On Wednesday September 20th at 1454 hours, Eastern Berks Fire, Medic 505 and Boyertown Fire’s Collapse Unit were dispatched to the report of a mobile home which had collapsed on Lenape Road in Washington Twp. Reports indicated at least one person and multiple animals were still inside the structure.
Chief 97 arrived on location and updated the information to report that the mobile home foundation had collapsed under the home, not the actual home. The chief was in verbal communication with the resident and she reported that she was not injured. She was able to self extricate and 95 units were returned. 97 apparatus proceeded into the scene under caution.
Medic 505 evaluated the resident, but did not need to transport. After securing all hazards, 97 place scene tape around the structure and was available. Responding from 97 were Rescue 97, Engine 97 and Fire Police. Thank you to Boyertown for their quick response.
