On Wednesday morning at 09:15 the Greenfields Fire Company was dispatched to the report of a trash truck striking a utility pole on General Spaatz Dr. and Museum Dr. near the Mid Atlantic Air Museum. E55 and Brush 55 responded.
Upon arrival, the crew found that a garbage truck had struck a utility pole, shearing it off at its base. The pole was being held up by the wires it was supporting and one guy wire was energized. GFC Firefighters coned off Museum Dr. and notified Met-Ed of the problem.
The garbage truck was not seriously damaged and there were no injuries. After the driver gave a report to Bern Township Police on scene, the truck was driven away under its own power.
Once Met-Ed was on scene airport personnel took over scene management and the GFC crew returned to the station.
Responding for the GFC were:
FF Mahlon Auker
