Station 27 Responds to 3 on Groundhog’s Day
By Hillsdale Fire Department
February 2, 2024

Punxsutawney Phil may not have seen his shadow, but that didn’t stop the HFD volunteers from responding out 3 times. The first 2 were potential gas emergencies, 1 being a gas leak at a meter and the 2nd being a potential runaway boiler. Both were quickly mitigated, and the scenes were turned over to PSE&G.

The 3rd came in shortly after 21:30, after County Communications received a call for a tree vs. structure. Car 1, Car 2, and 27 Rescue responded out quickly to determine there was only superficial damage to the building, along with no injuries. The scene was made safe and turned over to the occupants and police department.

Units: 27 Car 1, 27 Car 2, 27 Engine 2, 27 Rescue
Mutual Aid: None
