🔥Structure Fire🔥

Yesterday just after 1400 (2 PM) your East County Firefighters responded to the 27000 Block of Saddle Rock Ln in reference to a residential fire. Engine Co. 152 arrived first due to find a two story home with fire showing from the Alpha (front) side and began an offensive attack. With help from Porter Fire Department and Plum Grove Volunteer Fire Department. crews were able to bring the incident under control in about 40 minutes.
Our thoughts and prayers go out to Harris County Sheriff's Office and the family of the HCSO Deputy that passed away today due to injuries sustained in a motor vehicle accident.
Not only is it International Firefighter’s day, but it’s also Star Wars day! So from your Intergalactic Fire Department, May the Force be with you…always.
Every single day your East County Firefighters train on certain topics to better themselves for YOU. Although most training for the shift is up to each individual Captain, both the Truck Company and Engine Companies are required to complete Minimum Company Standards given by the Training Division each month.

For the month of April, your East County Firefighters have been training on vehicle extrication. Vehicle extrication can be a very complex, labor intensive task due to the variety of vehicles on the road. This task requires firefighters to think outside of the box and work fluidly together as a crew. Every day WE are training for YOU!

Pictured are crews from L151C and E152C.

Then just after 1900 (7 PM) FireCom alerted your East County Firefighters of a Residential Structure in the area of FM 1485 E and Lodge Rd, Box 1501.

Good morning everyone and HAPPY FRIDAY! For this Flashback Friday we are taking it back to just shy of a year ago, March 16 2021!

That afternoon around 3 PM, your East County Firefighters responded to the 27000 Block of Diamond Ct in reference to a high angle rescue. Crews arrived to find a severely injured tree-worker stuck approximately 60’ up. L151 was quickly positioned and the aerial device was thrown with a fireman at the tip to assess the injuries of the tree-worker and move him to the Montgomery County Hospital District Paramedics on the ground. Approximately 20 minutes following the arrival of L151 the patient was removed from the tree.

This was the first ever high angle rescue performed by your East County Ladder Company, proving it’s amazing uses not only at fires, but at ALL EMERGENCIES! In addition to our amazing Paramedics at MCHD, East County was also assisted by Porter Fire Department .

That’s all for today’s edition of Flashback Friday! Check back next week for new content! Have a great and safe weekend East County!
