This is the account of the firefighter that was almost struck. On Monday January 19, 2006 at approximately 2100 hours, I was a crew member on Engine 10-2. The engine, driven by Captain Dixon, approached Willow Grove Fire Company’s Main Station from the Abbeyview Road side of the firehouse. As the engine approached the firehouse, the driver activated all emergencylighting of the apparatus and the apparatus came to a complete stop. I had donned a reflective vest and had stepped out of the apparatus on the curbside. As I began to cross the street in front of the apparatus, I heard a privately owned vehicle’s horn honk. Upon hearing this, I came to a stop. A black, limousine-style, vehicle coming from the direction of Terwood Road failed to yield to the emergency lighting of the apparatus and passed the engine at a rapid rate of speed in the direction of York Road. A member of Willow Grove Fire Company occupied the privately owned vehicle that had honked. That vehicle came to a complete stop immediately behind the apparatus and the member had honked when he realized that the black, limousine-style, vehicle was going to proceed around both the privately owned vehicle and the apparatus.
