On Monday, December 24, Flourtown Fire Company and Wyndmoor Hose Co. responded to a call of a man injured on a fourth story rooftop along Stenton Avenue. Conscious and complaining of pain in his hip, the gentleman who had climbed out on the roof through an attic access could not return in the same way. Rescuers from Wyndmoor and Flourtown devised a rescue system using the 100 foot aerial of Flourtown as a crane, along with a stokes basket and rope rigging to lower the patient to street level and the ambulance.
In May 2006, Flourtown Fire Company joined companies and first-responder organizations from throughout Montgomery County in a Mass Casualty Training Exercise at the Springfield Township High and Middle Schools.
