Members spent today celebrating two exciting graduations. This morning, Firefighter Jon Steed completed the United States Marine Corps Officer Candidate School (OCS) during a ceremony in Quantico, Va., after ten grueling weeks. Second Lieutenant Steed moves on to The Basic School (TBS), also at Marine Corps Base Quantico, for the next six months followed by a Military Occupational Specialty (MOS) school to be determined. Later in the day, Specialist Sasha Savkova and Firefighter Courtney McManigle completed their two-year Physicians Assistant program at DeSales University. They plan to sit for their PA-C boards this fall. Congratulations to all, we're very proud to have you at Woodlawn! (photos will be added through the afternoon) ... See moreSee less
Woodlawn volunteers have responded to a few incidents so far today. Two water rescues were resolved prior to our arrival, reminders that you should never cross flooded roadways. An auto extrication dispatched at Lime Kiln and Orefield roads resulted in minor injuries, and personnel assisted with patient care. Crews are presently clearing from a large tree across Church Road at the railroad crossing, with a power line down. As another reminder, never go near downed wires; even live electrical lines can appear safe. ... See moreSee less
