Fire Chief's Briefing for September 20 Through September 25, 2011

Here is a summary of Brentwood Fire and Rescue’s emergency responses for the period of September 20 through September 25, 2011.

We responded to 37 emergency calls for service.

These calls can be broken down into the following categories:

EMS/Rescue: 24
Hazardous Condition: 1
Service Call: 2
Good Intent: 1
False Call: 9

Here is an overview of significant events from this period’s activities:

Tuesday, September 20 at approximately 7:24 pm:

E4 received a phone call at the station asking for help near the city limits with a dog who had been struck by a vehicle and was now under the vehicle. E4 proceeded approximately one mile into Nolensville before making contact with a Nolensville Police Officer and the driver of the vehicle. The dog was not entrapped, but was injured and did not want to come out. Shortly after arriving on scene, Nolensville Volunteer Fire Department (NVFD) arrived and control of the scene was transferred to them. NVFD personnel backed the vehicle away from the dog until the dog came out from the front. It was apparently injured but able to ambulate. NPD had requested animal control to respond to the scene, so the decision was made to wait for them. Upon their arrival the dog was leashed and lead to animal control's vehicle. E4 was released from the scene and returned to quarters.

Tuesday, September 20 at approximately 7:41 pm:

C3 was dispatched on a report of a snake in a residence. The homeowner had attempted to contact several pest and varmint removal services, but was unable to find anyone who would be able to come out that late at night. E4 was still out of quarters on the previous call, so C3 responded to assist the homeowner. The reptile was safely caught, removed from the residence, and released in a wooded area with no harm to the animal, the resident, or C3.

Friday, September 23 at approximately 3:09 pm:

E2, R1, and C3 were dispatched to a reported four-wheeler accident. Upon arrival, one PT was found lying in the grass complaining of leg and back pain. Spinal immobilization precautions were taken, a rapid trauma assessment was performed, and basic life support was initiated. PT care was transferred to EMS and the PT was loaded into the ambulance for transport to an area hospital for further treatment.
