Ladder 65 arrived and crews were put to work extinguishing hot spots and overhauling the 2nd floor. Unfortunately 2 people perished in the blaze.

Yesterday just after 1300 hours, Ladder 65 was dispatched to Swarthmore College for a commercial building fire. Engine 14 arrived and had nothing showing from a 3 story dormitory. Ladder 65 arrived as the second due truck company. Crews located a book shelf that had caught fire and had been extinguished by the sprinkler system. There’s was minimal extension and the assignment was held to the first arriving companies. ... See MoreSee Less
Sprinklers save lives!!! Swarthmore College has been progressive with the installation of these life saving systems. They should be required in private homes but our state legislature has failed us.
The station remained busy the rest of the day today. Engine 65 handled 3 brush fires in the township throughout the day. We just want to remind everyone, with the drier weather approaching please use caution when disposing of combustible materials outside. ... See MoreSee Less
I thought I smelled smoke today in Wallingford yeah I guess I did.
Today, the township fire companies, Nether Providence Police, and several mutual aid EMS units participated in the annual “Mock Crash” at the high school. We have been putting on this display for several years now and it has proved successful every year. The purpose of the mock crash is to show the students the dangers of getting behind the wheel while under the influence and the impacts it has on everyone involved. Thank you SHHS for allowing us to come over and put on the demonstration. ... See MoreSee Less

Don’t believe a closed door can save your life in a fire? Neither did the people in this video!
Check out this eye-opening experiment from UL that shows the dramatic difference a door can make.
