House Fire in Waterford

On December 26, the Hamilton Volunteer Rescue Squad responded alongside fire apparatus to a full box alarm house fire in Waterford. Volunteer EMTs of the HVRS set up a rehab area and provided medical care to the firefighters on scene and to the residents as needed. During the evening, the county upgraded the call and requested a Tanker Task force due to the significant fire. The residents were displaced, but fortunately nobody required transport to the hospital from the incident.
