August 19th, 2014 - Touch a Truck Event

We were part of the "Touch a Truck" event in Audubon at the Chick-Fil-A this afternoon. It's an activity that allows for kids to see different types of trucks up close, not just fire trucks. Audubon, Audubon Park, Haddon Hts., and Mt. Ephraim fire trucks were also there.

August 9th, 2014 - Marine Welcome Home

Today the OFD assisted the Audubon Park Fire Department with welcoming home one of their members, Andrew Galiano, who is a Lance Corporal in the United States Marine Corps and served in Afghanistan. Also assisting with this detail were the Warrior Watch Riders, the Audubon Fire Department, Collingswood Fire Department, Mt. Ephraim Fire Department, West Collingswood Heights Fire Company, Westmont Fire Company, and Haddon Township Police Department.

July 8th, 2014 - Three Vehicle Accident

The OFD responded to a three-vehicle accident in front of the Wawa shortly after 1pm Tuesday. Our job is to take care of leaking fluids, like anti-freeze and transmission fluid, that leaks onto the highway and to provide a safe working environment for EMS personnel. We also assist EMS as needed. While nobody was pinned in their cars, it was best for EMS to safely package the victims for transport before removing them from their cars. None of the injuries appeared to be life-threatening, and six people were taken to area hospitals. The White Horse Pike was closed for about 90 minutes.

Remember, if you see an accident or fire anywhere, don't assume that somebody else has called it in. Make it a point to call 911 to make sure. Do not immediately start shooting video with your phone! That didn't happen here, but we hear of this happening all too much.
