Another reminder to never drive over fire hose.Oh No He Didn’t. Yep he sure did & 👏to 🚔, he was stopped, received a ticket & was mandated to stay on scene. Once fireground Ops were complete & supply lines no longer needed, the hose was drained he was able to move his car. Don’t Drive Over Hose #SupplyLinesAreLifeLines ... See MoreSee Less

From our brothers and sisters in New Castle.*****CAUTION EMERGENCY SCENE AHEAD*****
This evening while responding to a reported house fire in Chelsea Estates, Wilmington Manor Fire Company Engine 28 laid a supply line from the hydrant to the scene of the emergency. As additional units arrived and secured the hydrant and blocked the roadway, three vehicles drove around the emergency vehicles and running over and dragging the uncharged supply hose. This causes damage to the hose and couplings, thus rendering the hose out of service until it can be inspected or tested.
Last week, while operating at the scene of a motor vehicle collision on Frenchtown Road, two vehicles drove around roadblocks, one almost striking a fire police officer, fire fighters on scene, and a New Castle City Police Department vehicle and the other almost striking a fire company vehicle and fire police.
The fire company reminds motorists that by law you must Slow Down and Move Over for emergency vehicles. Also, fire department road closures are legal road closures and are done for the safety of responders and victims of emergencies. ... See MoreSee Less
Today's PSA.12/24/19 1:13pm-Crews just returned to the station after assisting the Belle FD at a structure fire. The pictures posted are of a section of fire hose that was connected to the fire hydrant to supply water to the fire engines. Someone ran over our section of hose busting the inside of it. This is not only very costly to our department but more importantly dangerous to the firefighters that were inside the home. This could have caused the entire line to lose water and the firefighters inside would not have had water to fight the fire. Please do not run over fire hose at a fire scene. We take firefighter safety very seriously and we work to keep our equipment in working order. A structure fire in your neighborhood is an inconvenience we know but please remember it is also the worst day of someone’s life. We realize that you may have somewhere you need to be but someone’s life is more important than where you are going. ... See MoreSee Less
People please have some common sense!! Active fire go around not through!!!! Could be ur family member in there!
Need to invent a cover to drop over hoses to protect them, preferably something that will protect hose while damaging to car and allow prosecution.
I’m sorry to hear this happened to you guys. You deserve better - we’re thankful to have you.
