On 1/22/2010 at approximately 1335 hours, Southside Box 22-3 was dispatched for a house fire on Elene St north of Westernport. Engine Company 22, Truck 24, Engine Tanker 19, Tanker 36 and EMS 50 was dispatched on the call. Engine Tanker 22 responded with 6 and A/C 22 Derham. Engine Tanker 22 called for the working fire alarm while responding to the call with visible smoke in the area. The 1/2 mile long narrow steep driveway off of Route 36 was snow covered and slippery for the apparatus to make it into the scene. Engine Tanker 22 arrived on the scene as close as it could get and established the Elene St Command. High velocity brown smoke was pushing out of the basement door on side Alpha upon arrival.

Is this a case where the department doesn't have enough P.P.E. and S.C.B.A. or do they lack S.o.p.'s to regulate who gets close to the scene without wearing them!! Come on guys we beat this dead horse time after time and still it doesn't get through. The practice is unsafe and unprofessional. Everyone desereves to go home.

I live in Northern mMaine where we get at least 100 inches of snow a year. We have 1 all wheel drive taker, which used to be a forestry truck. And 1 pumper with studded tires. The rest of our fleet is regular tires. I can relate. It sucks.
