Good News for Brownsville
Your volunteers have been kept busy in the last few days. Starting at 0500 on Sunday the 24th of Feb they have responded to 22 calls for service. During one of those emergencies however, we had a unfortunate event which only serves to remind us that no matter how big or small the emergency we have to ALWAYS operate at the highest level of awareness. On Sunday evening while operating on a tree down on Newell Road. A tree fell on top of 5 Engine 3. One firefighter from Newell Fire Company sustained a leg injury and there was some damage to our truck but, THANKFULLY, no one sustained any serious injuries or was killed. Other fire companies please use this as an example to always keep your head on a swivel, continue to wear your PPE, and continue to operate safely. This outcome could have been way worse
