THE BEST OF THE BEST. Yesterday the 2nd Alarmers made me proud to be associated with this organization. Our day started off with responding to the Extra Alarm Fire at 3rd & Chestnut at about 4 AM where we remained on scene for 17 hours providing 1200 bottles of water and bug juice, 225 cheeseburgers, 192 slices of pizza, gloves, dry socks, hand warmers, bagels, 20 gal. of hot chocolate, 16 gal of coffee, 900 bags of assorted snacks. But during this long service yesterday the SA was still able to provide city wide coverage from the scene by responding to working fires at Loretto & Vankirk St , Cottman & Large St, and last evening when we returned to the station, we were on the move again to a working fire at 23rd & Dickinson St and overnight we responded to Phil Ellena & Sprague St. This busy day was accomplished by some dedicated volunteers whose mere purpose is to provide quality rehab standards to our PFD PPD members. They are SECOND TO NONE.
