Snyder Fire Department Members operated at the Main-Transit Fire Department multiple alarm Commercial Fire Tuesday evening as a Heavy Rescue crew. Members worked on-scene to force open doors and to help establish hose-lines for the exterior-based firefighting efforts. Our crews worked hard as part of the overall operation. Snyder units worked as a Heavy Rescue Company, forcing doors and helping establish water supply and direct water application. Members also worked as liaisons between the Command Staff and other resources such as National Fuel Gas to locate and isolate the natural gas. Crews worked together from across different Fire Departments, Towns, and Counties to accomplish a singular goal.
This is the 2nd large-scale Commercial Fire incident that Snyder FD has responded to in the last week. Last week we provided FAST coverage to Rescue Hose Company in Cheektowaga, NY.
