DELRAN FIRE COMPANY MAKES MUTUAL AID CALL TO LAKE HARMONY

Saturday, February 1, 2014   Four members of the Delran Fire Company of New Jersey arrived in Lake Harmony early Saturday morning to help replace the rear rotors on Rescue 17. This truck is equipped with disc brakes on both the front and rear, not a common occurrence on trucks. With all the parts on hand, the crew from Delran along side our engineer and lieutenant started tearing down the rear of the truck. Getting the studs out of the old rotor proved difficult. Getting the new studs in was worse. Using a porta power, hydraulic spreaders, and a punch press did not work. The final solution was to use two sledge hammers and beat them into place. The members of Lake Harmony are extremely thank full to the Delran Fire Company for their true support and brotherhood.
