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

Saturday, October 29 at approximately 9:50 pm:

C3, E2, R1 were dispatched to a report of an unresponsive bicyclist who had been struck by a vehicle. Upon arrival one PT was found to have regained consciousness but was disoriented and had obvious trauma to their head. The PT had been wearing a helmet, which was still intact. No other injuries were apparent. The driver of the vehicle stated that she had been traveling approximately 45 MPH and did not see the bicyclist prior to striking them. On-scene personnel took spinal immobilization precautions and began treating the wounds. The PT was packaged for transport and transferred to the care of EMS for emergency transport to an area hospital.  Units remained on scene to provide lighting for PD during their investigation.

Monday, October 31 at approximately 4:00 pm:

E2 responded to an investigation of a reported smell of gas inside a residence. Upon arrival, crew members were met by the occupant who stated that they smelled natural gas in the kitchen prior to cooking. The homeowner then cooked a pizza, so that’s all crew members could smell in that area. E2 used their gas detector throughout the house, in the crawl space, and around the furnace but nothing out of the ordinary was detected. With no hazards found, E2 cleared the scene and returned to quarters.

Tuesday, November 1 at approximately 5:44 pm and Wednesday, November 2 at approximately 1:37 pm:

E1 responded on a report of a child locked in a vehicle. E1’s crew utilized their lockout kit to remove the child from the vehicle who was uninjured. No damage to the vehicle occurred.  E1 cleared the scene and returned to quarters.
