The Town Of Batavia Fire Department had a busy afternoon. At approximately 4:34 this the afternoon, Attica Volunteer Fire Department requested one engine from TBFD to fill in at the Attica Fire Hall while they worked a structure fire. Soon after, the crew with Engine 24 was upgraded to respond to the scene of the fire. While on scene crews assisted with fire attack, search and rescue, and salvage and overhaul. While Engine 24 and crew where still on scene in Attica, TBFD was dispatched to a report of a person that fell 12 feet into a ravine and was unable to get out. Crews with Heavy Rescue 20, Engine 21 and Brush 23 responded. Once on scene crews completed a rope rescue and successfully and safely extricated the patient from the ravine without injuries. Afterwards, crews met at Station 1 to discuss the days events over dinner. As always, TBFD is ready and willing to assist our neighboring departments, while still providing fire and rescue operations to those in our home community!

Today, at approximately 3pm, this afternoon, TBFD was dispatched to the report of a tractor trailer versus garbage truck accident with minor injuries. While crews were responding, an update came in to dispatch that the tractor trailer was on fire. First arriving units found heavy fire coming from the cab of the tractor trailer. Due to the heavy fire and exposure possibility, incident command requested Stafford Fire Department to respond mutual aid with an engine to the scene. After the fire was under control, it was determined that one of the tractor trailers saddle tanks had ruptured, depositing between 50-100 gallons of diesel fuel onto the roadway. Due to the large amount of fuel spilled, DEC was contacted to respond to the scene. Crews were on location for roughly 4 hours. TBFD would like to extend our gratitude to the Stafford Fire Department, Bethany Fire Department and Oakfield Fire Department for assisting us today!
