1230 Hours/ 817 Oley Street/ D Platoon-
E9, T1, C7 were dispatched for an automatic fire alarm with a report of construction crews renovating a grocery store. Tower 1 arrived with alarms sounding and upon entering the structure, were met with a loud hissing noise, as well as a hazy cloud forming in the store. The crew immediately backed out and donned their SCBA. C7 upgraded the assignment to a Hazmat, and with that came R1. Upon regrouping, the crews entered, located a damaged pipe leaking a significant amount of Refrigerant, and began working on isolation and metering. With access to the compressor unattainable, crews were able to cut, crimp, and plug the leak. After mitigating the hazard, crews spent time ventilating due to the large area; while continuing to meter throughout the duration of the incident.
