High Winds Prompt RFC Response
By Chief Joe Maguire
January 14, 2024

High winds kept fire companies along the Main Line busy on Sunday.
RFC was called for a tree into a house on Upper Gulph Road and for downed wires on Old Eagle School Road.
The occupants of the house were at home when a large tree fell onto the house causing extensive damage. No one inside was injured.
Chief 15 requested Tredyffrin Township PD, a building inspector and PECO.
The wires on Old Eagle came down due to a tree which fell across the roadway, shutting down traffic.
While the above incidents were happening, Engine 15 was dispatched to assist the Bridgeport FC on a building fire.
The engine was released from Bridgeport and were sent to cover the Bryn Mawr Fire Company while they operated at a fire in Lower Merion.
RFC ended the day with a response to South Devon Avenue for arcing wires.
