10/22/18 - At  20:48; CWJFD was dispatched to a 2 vehicle accident with unknown injuries at the intersection of US 22 and Webb Rd. While units were enroute, dispatched advised a single vehicle hit the rear of a commercial vehicle. C2302, S67, R63, and R61 responded. Units were on scene within minutes to find a two vehicle collision where one vehicle rear ended a dump truck, the vehicle that hit the truck sustained heavy front end damage. All occupants were out of the vehicles at time of arrival; S67 rendered care to the two victims of the car, and the driver of the commercial vehicle refused treatment / transport. S67 transported the two patients to a local hospital with non life-threatening injuries. R63 and R61 units remained on scene for securement of the vehicles involved, site cleanup, and vehicle fluid cleanup. All units cleared the scene after the vehicles had been removed from scene. Another fine job from the men and women at CWJFD!

10-4-18; around 0730 hours, CWJFD was requested mutual aid to a neighboring department for a machinery fire with an industrial HVAC system involved at a large lumber yard. A tanker response was requested, T-66 and T-65 responded. Upon arrival, units on scene advised our tankers to supply water to a tower ladder already on scene. T-66 and T-65 arrived on scene just as the fire was contained, units on T-66 and T-65 assisted in putting out “hot spots” as well as cleanup for the host department. No injuries were reported and property damage was minimal, one large industrial wood planer was lost in the fire. These fires can be very tricky due to the possibility of a dust explosion, thankfully that did not happen!
