Tower & Engine 53 - Assist in Perkiomen
Sun. Feb 21st 2021

Saturday afternoon, Lower Providence firefighters assisted

Perkiomen Township Fire Company

with a residential house fire. Tower 53 responded as the FAST company on the assignment. Prior to our arrival, our officers and the Incident Commander noticed that the Tower could get into an advantageous tactical position in a neighbor's driveway. Another FAST crew was assigned and Tower 53 went to work as a truck company. Initial crews removed a victim from the 2nd floor under arduous conditions just as the Tower was arriving. The fire went to two alarms and crews did a tremendous job removing the victim and getting the fire under control. The LPFD is proud to be part of a solid mutual aid team across Montgomery County.

Our thoughts are with all those affected by the fire. We'd also like to thank the neighbors who assisted with use of their driveway and provided crews with much appreciated bottled water.
