03/20/2016 2 calls by Greg Forgea.
       At approximately 10:30 Sunday morning, the East Greenbush Fire Department was dispatched for a reported structure fire on River Rd. Cars 2 and 4 called enroute and were advised by East Greenbush dispatch that the caller was reporting smoke showing from the front of the residence. Car 4 arrived on scene, found nothing showing, and continued his investigation. After meeting with the caller, and completing a walk around, it was determined that the cause was a pellet stove. Engine 7 and Car 2 confirmed the cause of the smoke with the homeowner and all units were in service. Units operating on scene were Cars 2 and 4, Engines 7 and 8, Truck 11, BRS, EGPD, RPD, NYSP.
        A couple of hours later, pagers were again activated, this time for a reported traffic accident with injuries. Cars 1, 3, and 4 called enroute and were advised by East Greenbush dispatch that the accident was on Troy Rd at the entrance to North Greenbush Plaza. Car 4 arrived first and found a multi-car accident with one reported minor injury. Both cars were blocking lanes of traffic and parts of the intersection. Engine 8 arrived and shut down the exit from the plaza and the EMT onboard began patient care. Rescue 11 arrived and began securing the vehicles and mitigating hazards. Members from both apparatus as well as members of the fire police assisted with traffic in the very busy section of Troy Rd. Units operating on scene were Cars 1, 3, 4, Engine 8, Rescue 11, Mohawk Ambulance, EGPD and NGPD.
