7/19/2013 Propane Leak.
Crews operated most of the day at a large propane leak. Command struck the second alarm and added an additional engine and truck from station 8. Many agencies operated at this scene for over 4 hours until the tank was secure. We thank our Ladies Auxiliary and all the mutual aid departments as well as the county bureau of emergency services personnel and both heating companies that also helped on such a hot day.

        East Greenbush Fire was dispatched by the Town of East Greenbush dispatch center for a report of a smell of natural gas from the restaurant Chez Mikes. Car 4(Jeff Tooker) arrived and confirmed a heavy smell of natural gas in the area. Car 3 (Chris Dick), engine 7,8,9,R-11 and the ladder truck all responded on the box. The truck company forced entry into the business and found explosive reading inside the restaurant. Crews' evacuated neighboring businesses, secured a water source, stretched lines and searched the building for the source. An additional engine was requested from the Heights to be added to the box. Crews were in service prior to the 3 hour mark. The restaurant was turned over to the owner and National Grid stayed on the scene to work on the problem. Thanks to the Heights for the additional engine and command officer. We are lucky to have such a working relationship with our neighboring department.
