COUDERSPORT VOLUNTEERS ANSWERED TWO ALARMS WEDNESDAY

Coudersport volunteer firefighters were summoned at both ends of the day yesterday to calls at facilities housing elderly citizens.

Just before 9:00 am firefighters were summoned to Sweden Valley Manor for a malfunctioning wall receptacle in a resident’s room located in A hall. When responders arrived at the nursing home, they encountered a slight odor of burned electrical equipment.

According to a fire department spokesman, members helped staff evacuate 34 residents to the upper parking lot. Only minimal damage to the outlet itself was reported and all units were back in service a short time later. A spokesman said the problem was worsened because a smoke detector would not re-set and kept going off.

He also credited Lonnie Bunch, the safety director at Charles Cole Hospital for arriving on scene moments after the call to offer assistance.

Then at about 8:40 pm, the department answered an automatic alarm at Cole Manor on Maple Street in Coudersport.

According to a fire department spokesman, a faulty air conditioner had leaked water into a detector on the first floor causing it to go off. Firefighters and ambulance personnel helped staff members evacuate some 28 residents from the assisted living facility. There was no damage.

Everyone returned a short time later after and “all’s clear” was given. All units were back in service about an hour later. More News....
