Lackawanna Energy Center Emergency Drill
Fri. Aug 3rd 2018

The Jessup Fire Department in coordination with the Lackawanna Energy Center conducted an emergency response drill at the facility on Sunnyside Road on Wednesday, August 1st. There were three distinct but coordinated incidents.

A call was placed by Chief 25 (who planned the drill along with LEC staff and remained as an observer) to the Lackawanna County Communications Center, who had been notified prior to the drill, to start the process by dispatching the first alarm structure assignment to the facility at 1000 Sunnyside Road.

The original dispatch was for a working fire in a building on the northwest side of the facility. On arrival Chief 25B assumed command and had Engine 25, Engine 31, Rescue 25, Utility 31, Car 25 and Ladder 20 set-up for fire suppression on the three Connex Trailers designated as being on fire. A ladder pipe from Ladder 20 and a handline from Engine 25 along with the deck gun were put into operation. Engine 31 provided the water supply from a nearby hydrant.

Command was then informed of two other incidents, a Hazardous Material leak in the area of the southwest side of the facility and a worker needing medical assistance from a fall on the northwest side of the facility on the third level of the structure. He assigned Squad 22 to the hazardous material incident and BLS 25-8 to the medical emergency. On arrival Chief 25B had also requested the second alarm for apparatus and manpower.

Chief 25A assumed operations and had the second alarm units of Engine 26-2 and Squad 26 assist Squad 22 on the HAZMAT leak with Chief 22 in charge. A protection line was charged and the crews began defensive operations to stabilize the area.

On arrival of Rescue 59, Ladder 23 and BLS 21-9 they were assigned to assist BLS 25-8 with EMS 25 in charge on the medical call. The Ladder 23 set-up the ladder above the victim to provide a secondary access while the remaining crews assisted with lowering the patient in a stair chair.

At some point the on-site water supply failed and a request for tankers was initiated by Chief 25B.  The SRN for tankers 15, 21and 29 was dispatched by Communications and Engine 33-2 was assigned water supply at a fire hydrant on Alberigi Drive with the officer of the Engine in charge and Rescue 31 was assigned drafting from the port-a-pond with Chief 31 in charge of that portion of the operation.

Ladder 58 and BLS 29-9 were assigned to staging.

After a little over two hours all operations were declared completed and crews began wrap-up. The LEC staff conducted tours of the facility for those that had not been at the location previously and then provided food and fluids to the participants at the conclusion of the drill.

Units participating along with Jessup units were from Archbald/Eynon, Blakely/Peckville, Dickson City, Elmhurst/Roaring Brook, Jefferson, Jermyn, Mayfield and Olyphant.
