Plymouth Brush Fire – Ship Pond Road - April 17, 2005

Plymouth County Control requested 2 Brush breakers respond mutual aid to the Town of Plymouth for a woods fire threatening homes in the area of Fairway Drive. Carver Brush breakers 27 & 28 along with DFC Mark Weston responded. A few minutes later Plymouth County Control requested an Engine to the same fire and Engine 3 responded. The Plymouth County Fire Plane (shown in one of the pictures) was on scene as well as Brush breakers and Engines from 5 other Towns. A well-coordinated mutual aid system in Plymouth County greatly enhances public safety and without a doubt played a big role in saving several homes from being damaged in this fire. (Photo’s by Lt.
