PFA received two calls about potentially hazardous conditions or materials just 10 minutes apart today! The first was a small gas leak in a residential area. The Engine 2 crew was able to shut off the source immediately, check if properties were affected and monitor the air for safety before clearing the scene.

The second call was dispatched at 11:10 a.m. after a report of a vehicle leaking fluid on Mulberry St. Engine 6 arrived at 11:16 a.m. and found a truck on the Frontage Rd. south of Mulberry that was leaking diesel. The crew quickly dug a small trench and set up a dike to help stop the fuel from spreading into the nearby ditch. Hazmat Technicians were dispatched as well. “Our job now is to mitigate any damage, clean up residue, keep people away from the area and keep the road safe,” said a PFA Hazmat Technician.
