I would like to thank all the members that responded to the fire call at the Grays Lane House Apartments yesterday for their teamwork. After the fire was put out and the burn victim removed we needed to deal with the smoke that had risen up into the building. It was very labor intensive to remove all the occupants and search all the floors. After a secondary search of all the apartments we assisted in getting the basics and medications for all the 38 evacuated residents and then assisted them to vehicles for transportation to places to stay for the night.
I commend all the firefighters, assist fire companies, fire marshals office members, ambulance personnel, Lower Merion Police and all the agencies that came together to assist the residents in their time of need.
