     2005 YEAR IN REVIEW

2005 was a very productive year
     for the Fire Company.
   This program will highlight
 specific incidents, training, and
other accomplishments performed
    within 2005 by the 100%
  volunteer staff we have at our
             Company.
      2005 YEAR IN REVIEW
  This past year we saw a wide variety of
    emergencies and dispatches for our
                assistance.
We are very proud of our members who give
up their time away from families and friends
  to lend a hand on an all volunteer basis.
Not only do our members respond to calls on
 a 24/7 basis, we also rely on them to help
    raise funds to keep the Fire Company
 operating as a cost effective service to our
                 Community.
           2005 YEAR IN REVIEW
One of the first major incidents in
  2005 was a boiler explosion in
     the early morning hours of
   February 14th at the Lambert
 Spawn Company on Valley Road
    in the Westwood Section of
          Valley Township.
  Two employees were injured
   when a valve ruptured and
   burned the two gentlemen.
 One patient was severely steam
burned and required transport by
  Sky FlightCare helicopter for
specialized care at Crozer Chester
           Burn Center.
    Both employees survived.
           2005 YEAR IN REVIEW
The second major incident we responded to was a plane crash in the
             Westwood Section of Valley Township.
  On Sunday, March 6th, reports came in of a small passenger plane
 which had apparently crashed into a field just South of Valley Road.
     Westwood Fire & EMS personnel as well as mutual aid from
    surrounding departments responded and arrived to find two
  passengers who had apparently succumbed to their injuries upon
impact. Our firefighters secured the area and enacted an emergency
          plan to notify Federal, State, and Local Officials.
         2005 YEAR IN REVIEW
                 Just two weeks following the plane crash,
                 we were dispatched for a report of a
                 house fire in the Country Club Valley
                 Development in Valley Township.

                 The end unit of a 4 unit row was well
                 involved in fire upon our arrival less than
                 10 minutes from the time of call to 911.
                 Crews from Westwood and Sadsburyville
                 Fire Companies contained the bulk of the
                 fire to the unit of origin. Several other fire
                 companies were called to the scene for
                 additional manpower.

 The fire was placed under control less than 45 minutes after our arrival and
   damage to the ajoining homes was minimal. The cause of the fire was
determined by the Chester County Fire Marshal’s Office to be lint backup in a
                      dryer vent. No one was injured.
 TOTAL PROPERTY AT RISK: $660,000 - TOTAL PROPERTY LOSS: $305,000
                     ** PROPERTY SAVED: $355,000 **
            2005 YEAR IN REVIEW
On April 1st, 2005, we celebrated our 58th
      Year of Service by honoring our
   volunteers at our Annual Appreciation
   Banquet held at the Coatesville Moose
                   Lodge.

  Our firefighters, EMS personnel, Fire
   Police, Administrative Officers, Bingo
  Volunteers, and their families enjoyed
   an evening away from the day to day
     operations of the Fire Company.
   Various members were honored with
   special awards for their dedication to
   the Fire Company and Community we
                   protect.

 While we gave our volunteers a “night
 off,” our Community was still protected
  with Fire & EMS services. The Union
  Fire Company of Oxford, Gordonville
       Fire Company and Christiana
   Community Ambulance Association
    both of Lancaster County provided
          protection to our area.
      2005 YEAR IN REVIEW

A car wash and bake
sale was held on May
28th to help raise
funds for our Engine

A total of $400 was
raised despite the
rainy afternoon
weather.

           On June 4th, the
           Fire Company
           attended the
           Lancaster County
           Fireman’s Parade
           in Columbia.
           Ambulance 44

           Place Best
           Appearing and
           Equipped
           Ambulance.
           2005 YEAR IN REVIEW
 In June, for the first time in the history of the Fire Company, all of
   our Active Members were fitted for a full Class A uniform. The
appearance of our personnel in uniform has a provided a much more
   professional presence. The funding to provide each member a
  uniform came partially from a grant and our Ambulance Division.
Each past Fire Chief, EMS Chief, and Fire Police Captain was provided
         with a uniform to keep at no cost to that member.
           2005 YEAR IN REVIEW
On June 11th, the Company participated in
the 100th Anniversary of the Hershey Fire
Department and Dauphin County Fireman’s
Convention and Parade.

While at the parade, our apparatus and
equipment was judged for prizes and
awards.

We were given the 1st Place Award for the
Best Appearing Fire Engine in the 1990-1994
category for Engine 44-5, as well as the 3rd
Place Specialized Unit for our Ambulance.
Our Ambulance was the only Ambulance of
those present to win an award. For our
awards, we received $700 in cash prizes.

Again, while we were away, our Community
was protected by the Gordonville Fire
Company.
            2005 YEAR IN REVIEW
   On June 19th, the Fire Company
   was dispatched for a report of a
  house fire on Hillcrest Road in the
    Quiet Village Section of Valley
               Township.

 Our crews arrived to find a garage
  attached to the home fully involved
     in fire. A homeowner, who was
     sleeping at the time of the fire,
  was awoken by her smoke detector
   which clearly provided her with a
  notice of the fire so that she could
  safely evacuate the residence. The
    fire was contained to the garage
  with minimal smoke damage to the
  living area of the home and no one
    was injured. Additional tankers
    from as far away as White Horse
   were called to the scene to assist.

TOTAL PROPERTY AT RISK: $300,000
  TOTAL PROPERTY LOSS: $100,000

** PROPERTY SAVED: $200,000 **
             2005 YEAR IN REVIEW
 On July 16th, we were dispatched for a house on fire on Lafayette Street in the
Hayti Section of Valley Township. Our personnel arrived on scene to find a home
   with fire conditions showing from the front and left side of the residence.
Westwood & Sadsburyville firefighters had the fire officially under control just 24
minutes after the time we received the call from 911. The destruction of the fire
                        was limited to only two rooms.
   TOTAL PROPERTY AT RISK: $190,000 – TOTAL PROPERTY LOSS: $90,000
                    ** TOTAL PROPERTY SAVED: $100,000 **
           2005 YEAR IN REVIEW
On July 30th, our Tac unit
participated in a parade and
housing ceremony for the Gibralter
Fire Company of Berks County.
Tac 44 was awarded as the 1st
Place Quick Response Service
Unit in the entire parade.
The piece of apparatus has also
received numerous awards since
we purchased it new in 1995,
including the 1st Place Quick
Response Service Unit in the State
of Pennsylvania back in 2000.
We are proud of our volunteers
who take care and have great pride
of our apparatus and equipment.
              2005 YEAR IN REVIEW
     In the early morning hours of August 7th, when most people are sleeping, over 100 volunteer
firefighters from all over the area were busy fighting a house fire on Park Avenue in East Fallowfield
  Township. The call was received by 911 at 3:47AM and our apparatus arrived on the scene just 9
                                            minutes later.
Wires down across the roadway from a previous incident hampered the efforts of the initial arriving
 firefighters, however our personnel were able to drive through a yard and up a long driveway to
                          position apparatus in front of the home on fire.
 One resident had been injured while trying to escape from the home and was quickly treated and
               transported to Brandywine Hospital by Westwood EMS personnel.
      One firefighter from the Modena Fire Company was also injured while fighting the blaze.
            TOTAL PROPERTY AT RISK: $800,000 – TOTAL PROPERTY LOSS: $500,000
                             ** TOTAL PROPERTY SAVED: $300,000 **

In August, we became the 28th Ambulance
  Service in Pennsylvania to be awarded
   the “Ambulance Service of the Year”
                 award.
           2005 YEAR IN REVIEW
Each of our Active EMTs
traveled to the
Pennsylvania Emergency
Medical Services
Conference and Awards
Ceremony in State College
to attend the ceremony.
The award is presented to
an Ambulance Service who
demonstrates consistent
rapid response times,
devotion to training and
professional development,
and participation in public
activities and education.
This was a monumental
occasion for our “new”
Ambulance Service.
           2005 YEAR IN REVIEW
For our Award, the Ambulance Division
received Congressional Honors presented at
the Valley Township Meeting in December, as
well as a presentation by the Chester County
Commissioners.
Members were presented with declarations
from Congressman Jim Gerlach, Senator John
Rafferty, and Representative Tim Hennessey.

    At 5:06AM on September 24th, Westwood & Sadsburyville Fire
 Companies were dispatched for an apartment building fire on Lincoln
          Highway in the Hayti Section of Valley Township.
Unattended cooking was the cause of the fire which destroyed a kitchen,
  with some minor damage to the living room and porch of one unit.
     There were no working smoke detectors in the unit of origin.

On October 2nd, we held a “Bingo Marathon” to
 raise funds for our Engine Room Renovation
                    project.
Almost all of our active Fire, EMS, Fire Police,
Administrative, and Bingo personnel worked
together to make this event a huge success.
        2005 YEAR IN REVIEW
Tac 44 again won an award at
the Union Fire Company of
Oxford’s Parade & Housing in
the Quick Response Service
category on October 8th.
Members spent many hours
cleaning and preparing to
participate in one of our
neighbor’s events.
We remain proud of our Quick
Response Service we provide
to our Community.
           2005 YEAR IN REVIEW
  In October, we began renovations on our Engine Room project.
 Much of this work was done by Buck Run Builders of Parkesburg,
  however a total of 43 hours was spent by OUR OWN volunteers
            making repairs on our own to save money.
Painting was completed by one of our Fire Police Members, Bob Law.
Many other firefighters also lent a hand with portions of the project.

        2005 YEAR IN REVIEW
On October 15th, we were invited to attend the East
Fallowfield Township October Park Day. Westwood &
Modena Fire Companies displayed our apparatus and
handed out fire prevention materials to children in
attendance.

Throughout the year, we
attended 18 community
functions in our primary
district, including birthday
parties and block parties,
parades, and displays.
The fire company does this
as a free service to the
Community.
      2005 YEAR IN REVIEW

On November 2nd, the
Company voted to sell the
1979 Pumper/Tanker and
1985 Pumper/Rescue to
the Stewart County,
Tennessee Fire/Rescue
Department.
These two pieces of
apparatus served the
Community for more than
20 years.
      2005 YEAR IN REVIEW

On Saturday, November 5th, the City of Coatesville Fire Department
 and Westwood were simultaneously dispatched to Route 82 and
Lumber Street for a vehicle accident. Less than 5 minutes after we
were dispatched, Westwood Ambulance was the first Ambulance on
                              scene.
Our EMS personnel found that a total of 7 patients were complaining
                           of injuries.
Through a group effort between Westwood & Coatesville personnel,
we worked with the assistance of neighboring Ambulance Services to
        treat and transport all 7 victims to area hospitals.
     2005 YEAR IN REVIEW
  In November, production finally began on our new
Pierce Dash Pumper/Rescue. This unit would be later
            delivered to us in early 2006.
 Currently, the new Rescue is still having equipment
                     mounted.

December was a month filled with serious
automobile accidents.
The first major accident was dispatched at
5:07AM on Monday, December 12th. Two
vehicles had violently collided on Airport
Road near Robinson Avenue in Valley
Township.
A total of 4 seriously injured patients were
trapped in two separate vehicles. Our first
personnel at the scene arrived 7 minutes
after the call to 911.
Since our Rescue is currently being replaced,
we had additional help from our neighboring
Fire & Rescue Companies in addition to our
units. 4 patients were successfully cut from
their vehicles using the “Jaws of Life”
hydraulic rescue tools by Westwood &
Coatesville firefighters.
Four medical helicopters were called to the
scene to rapidly transport all 4 victims to area
trauma center.
All 4 victims survived.
            2005 YEAR IN REVIEW
December 17th was a busy day on the roadways of
East Fallowfield Township.
At 12:28PM, our Fire & EMS units were dispatched
to Doe Run Road just south of Newlinville Road
for a vehicle accident with victims trapped.
Even while our Rescue is out of service for
replacement, we have carried sufficient
equipment on our other apparatus to operate at
our incidents. Our crews went to work extricating
two victims from a vehicle using the “Jaws of
Life.” Within 28 minutes of our dispatch time,
both subjects were extricated and in the hands of
EMS personnel.
Later that same day, at 10:07PM, we were once
again out assisting the Modena Fire Company at a
serious accident on Buck Run Road in the area of
Youngsburg Road. One patient was trapped in a
vehicle after a head on collision.
Our personnel and Coatesville Rescue personnel
worked together to extricate this victim.
Westwood EMS personnel arrived first and
transported the patient to Sky FlightCare
helicopter for air medical evacuation to a local
trauma center.

       The end of the year was also filled with
       hard work for our volunteers.
       While we were busy fundraising with a
       special New Year’s Eve Bingo session at
       our firehouse, our personnel were called to
       assist the Coatesville Fire Department for a
       house fire on Valley Road in Coatesville
       City.
       Our crews spent the bulk of their New
       Year’s Eve working for the firehouse in one
       way or another to serve our Community.
       Even later on New Year’s morning, we
       were once again out for close to 2 hours
       fighting a house fire just hours after the
       first one.
       23 Westwood volunteers spent New Years
       Eve hard at work, away from their families,
       so that others could enjoy the holiday.
                     2005 YEAR IN REVIEW
       The highlighted emergencies shown in this report were calls that we
      responded to in our primary designated response areas of Valley, East
                      Fallowfield, and Highland Townships.
  In addition, we also provided assistance to our neighboring Fire Companies
     on many other major emergencies in Chester and Lancaster Counties.

            2005 YEAR IN REVIEW
In December, we lost a major part
of our fundraising efforts at the
firehouse when a big portion of the
men and women who have worked
our weekly Bingo Sessions for more
than 25 years decided it was time to
“retire” from the full time task of
weekly Bingo. While many of them
continue to frequent Bingo each
week, and provide a helping hand
and guidance at times, we will
never be able to replace them or
account for the countless hours
they have spent making the fire
company what it is today.
In addition, we suffered from the
loss of one of our longtime Bingo
callers this past year, Al Olonovich,
who lost his battle with cancer.
            2005 YEAR IN REVIEW
In May and October, we visited schools in
our area to provide education to students
            on fire prevention.
    A total of 14.5 hours was spent by
   volunteers who were available on a
     weekday to attend these events.
Special thanks to Firefighter Kim Warren
   for helping us with these events.

TRAINING!
     2005 YEAR IN REVIEW


  TRAINING!
  Training was a major focus in
2005. Our members spent time at
    our weekly regular training
 sessions throughout the year, in
   addition to numerous special
     training sessions we held.
          2005 YEAR IN REVIEW
With the move to encourage all paid and volunteer firefighters
  across the United States to achieve National Certification,
    training has become a very difficult, exhausting, and
   frustrating part of our fire company for our volunteers.
     However, the amount of members who have taken the
initiative to be a step ahead of many other fire companies has
  made a very positive mark at the Westwood Fire Company.
Each and every active member has participated in training of
   some sort this year, ranging from in house training to
                   National Certification.
  This is an accomplishment which was set as a goal in the
beginning of the year and has become quite rewarding for our
                          members.

This is a yearly class required by
State Guidelines.
Some members were taking this
class for the first time, some were
refreshing their skills, and others
