Yesterdays fire on N. Division St. was not your ordinary run of the mill fire. Arriving firefighters found a rapidly advancing fire in a very large multiple occupancy building. The structure is estimated to be 100 years old or more. For 4 hours Volunteer and Career firefighters from Salisbury and its neighboring companies worked together in extreme heat and humidity to extinguish this fire and save as much property as possible.
As the incident commander I witnessed nothing but complete cooperation and teamwork from every individual involved. I would like to thank the men and women from Salisbury, Delmar, Hebron, Fruitland, Parsonsburg, Mardela and Allen for their contributions yesterday. No department of our size could handle an incident of this size without Teamwork and assistance from Mutual Aid companies.Fires that occur Monday through Friday 7-5 present a manpower shortage to fire departments across the country. People have to work and support their families. While units are busy handling the incident at hand there are fill in companies manning the stations. The next emergency doesn't wait until your finished with the first emergency. You have to be prepared if those additional calls come in.
At the end of the day the building was saved and no citizens were injured or killed. The fire department accomplished its mission to protect lives and property.
