On Wednesday, August 9th, 2017 Rescue 44 attended the 15th Annual Upper Main Line YMCA Emergency Services Day. As a previous supporter at the event, we were asked to return for this milestone anniversary.
Chief Eamon Brazunas of the Berwyn Fire Company organized the event and requested us to attend to provide a static display of our Rescue truck and equipment.
Firefighters and equipment from numerous other fire companies were on hand and each had a specific task and area for various demonstrations.
In addition to Berwyn, Paoli, and Westwood, crews from the Radnor Fire Company, Malvern Fire Company, East Whiteland Fire Company, Newtown Square Fire Company, Valley Forge Fire Company, Tredyffrin and Easttown Police Departments, Pennsylvania State Police, the Chester County Hazardous Materials Team, the Chester County 911 Center, and an air medical helicopter from PennSTAR were all on hand.
Over 450 children attended another successful event.
Congratulations to the Berwyn and Paoli Fire Companies for another successful educational event for the YMCA and the kids.
