Camden Fire Department
Fire, Rescue, & Safety Operations
May 5, 2012 - Helicopter Standby


This page and the other pages in this series are the successors to the series of web-page about the Camden Fire Department that began with the page Camden Fire Department: The Fires of the Summer of 2011. On this and other pages in the series you will find pictures and information regarding different events and aspects of the fire service in Camden, New Jersey.

On the afternoon of May 5, 2012 a call came over the radio about a dwelling fire at 3811 High Street in East Camden. I jumped into my truck, with camera, radio, and my dog Lola. There was no fire at the scene, Ladder 3 and Engine 9 were returning to quarters, so after taking a couple of pictures I went on my way, as there were things to do in East Camden. I stopped at Engine 11 for a few minutes, then went over to the East Camden firehouse. While there a call came for Squad 7 to go to Camden High School's football field to monitor a helicopter landing and take-off. As the weather was nice, aside from a cloudy sky, I thought this would be a good opportunity for Lola to stretch her legs a bit, so off we went. Not much drama, a bit of goofing around while waiting for the patient to come back to the helicopter from nearby Lady of Lourdes Hospital, and some pictures. Quiet is good!

As with the web page covering other Camden Fire Department events, if you can identify anyone that I've missed, please e-mail me. (I'm terrible at at names and faces).
