Dublin FD searching for lost equipment

Dublin Fire Department is asking for the community’s help in finding some equipment that was lost off a fire truck last weekend.
Doug Irvin Jr. said a nearly full set of firefighter clothing (turnout gear) and a communications radio fell out of the back seat of an open cab on a fire truck while it was en route to a training exercise around 1-1:30 p.m. last Saturday.
Upon arriving at their destination department members immediately realized the equipment was gone. Although firefighters retraced the route within 10 to 15 minutes of losing the gear, it was nowhere to be found.
"I can’t imagine what anyone would do with it except play with it," Irvin said of the gear, on which "Dublin Fire Department" is either sewn or engraved. He said it would most likely be difficult to sell.
Besides the communication radio, a member’s fire coat, air pack mask, pants, boots, tools (inside the coat pocket) and gloves were lost.
"I hope whoever has it will return it (no questions asked) or somebody saw it being picked up and will call the department," Irvin said.
He stressed that the equipment would be expensive for the department to have to replace.
"Being a volunteer department, we don’t need to have to buy new gear," he said. "It’s necessary equipment. It’s not something to play with,"
The equipment fell off somewhere between the department building and Dublin Industrial Park.
Upon leaving the fire department, the truck turned right onto Route 11, took the ramp onto southbound Route 100 and then turned left at the Shop-Eez convenience store to go into the industrial park.
Irvin said the equipment is most likely to have fallen off the truck when it was taking the right turn onto Route 11, on the ramp between Routes 11 and 100, or during the left turn at Shop-Eez.
A member walked along the route to check closely for the gear, but not even as little as a tool was found.
Since the gear weighs about 40 to 50 pounds, it’s doubtful the wind blew it away, he noted.
Anyone having information on the whereabouts of the gear is asked to call the fire department at 674-6890 or Dublin Police Department at 674-5167.
