Nature: Alarm Sounding

Location: Baywoods Turf Management (80)

Address:  25258 Banks Rd Millsboro, DE 19966


Earlier Sunday morning, December 10th, the Indian River Volunteer Fire Company was alerted for an alarm sounding incident at the Baywoods Turf Management Complex on Banks Road.  It was reported to be a general fire alarm with water flow from a pump.

Emergency response units from Indian River included Tanker 80 form the Oak Orchard facility and Engine #80-3 from the Long Neck facility as well as the Delaware State Fire Police.

Emergency response crew assignments included a exterior and interior evaluation of the facility to identify the source of the incident. The exterior evaluation yielded water flow via drain outside, audible alarms with no smoke or fire conditions evident.  The interior evaluation focused on the emergency fire suppression system pump. 

It appears that the activations were accidental and the result of an operational issue with the fire suppression pump. 

All units were permitted to return to their respective quarters.
