Members Assist Riverdale Heights Vol. Fire Dept & Rescue Squad; 2nd Due in Co. 29’s Area
The Morningside Volunteer Fire Department and our members are committed to serving, so much so, that often we have more volunteers wanting to give their time than available seats on our apparatus. When this occurs we reach out to neighboring departments and see if they can use any assistance. We had to travel a little further than we have in the past, but our members were welcomed at the Riverdale Heights Vol. Fire Dept. & Rescue Squad, Inc. Co. 13 and we were glad to team up with them for the night. While these members were at Company 13, the MVFD maintained a staffed Engine Company, Rescue Squad, and Ambulance. We value our members and will always ensure they have the ability to provide service to the communities that need it.
And today, the Morningside Volunteers were second due engine for a house fire in Company 29’s area. Engine 827 worked for over an hour stretching into the basement and checking for extension of the fire. Great Job everyone!
