Mt. Penn Fire Company

Pennside Trampoline Tragedy

On December 15 just before noon, Ladder 1 was dispatched to the 800 block of N. 25th St. to assist Lower Alsace (Co4) with a report of a trampoline on power lines.  On arrival crews confirmed a large trampoline in a rear yard on the 800 block of Brighton Ave. that was tangled in a tree as well as phone & cable lines.  Fortunately no power lines were involved.  The unsecured item had apparently blown from a neighbors yard, over a tall fence and become lodged in the tree & wires.  Phone and cable companies were contacted and units were able to clear within 10 minutes.
