Battalion 15 arrived on scene with smoke showing and visible fire inside a two story single family dwelling. Squad 10 was the first arriving engine with Engine 88 arriving seconds later.

A point to think about

Share via email

As firefighters we see things on a daily basis that some people would hope to never experience in their life time. In past headlines, a community criticized the response times of Philadelphia Fire Department to a fire that tragically took the lives of four children. Debates on this incident brought to light many misconceptions held by the public about the fire service. Below is a list gathered from various social media outlets on what we as firefighters wish the public could understand about our day to day duties as firefighters. Feel free to leave a comment with something you feel the public just doesn’t understand.

Read this and think about what it means to be a firefighter.

Labor Day Weekend

Share via email

It has been a busy weekend for station 10.

imagesAs summer comes to an end please enjoy time with your friends and family.

AMERICA is a great nation because of the strength and character of the American people. Without the full-hearted support of an intelligent, energetic labor force, all of our technological and theoretical breakthroughs would have been wasted; with that support, they have made America the most prosperous, progressive nation in the world.

On Labor Day we pay tribute to the working men and women to whom America owes so much. On this day, we also give thanks for the fact that in our free society–more than anywhere else on earth–the laborer can enjoy’ the results of his labor and the freedom to choose where and how he will apply his skills. By working together, labor, management and government in America have achieved a standard of living and a climate of opportunity and individual rights unequalled in the history of man.

But in a competitive world, no matter how great our past achievements, we must not fall victim to complacency. The soul and sinew of American labor must continue to be a force for progress and productivity. The continuing vitality of our economy and, through it, of our entire way of life, rests in large measure on the willingness, understanding and cooperation of the working men and women of America. They have not failed us before and they will not fail us now.
