Here is a summary of Brentwood Fire and Rescue’s emergency responses for the period of February 9 through February 14, 2012.

We responded to 43 emergency calls for service.

EMS/Rescue: 26

Hazardous Condition: 2

Service Call: 3

Good Intent: 3

False Call: 8

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

Friday, February 10 at approximately 3:41 pm:

E2 was dispatched on a reported vehicle fire on Interstate 65 in the northbound lane. E2 arrived on scene to find a single vehicle fire in the outside emergency lane just prior to the exit.  The vehicle appeared to have heavy smoke showing from the engine compartment and front of the passenger compartment.  No occupants were in the vehicle.  Nashville Fire Department was already on scene extinguishing the fire upon E2’s arrival.  E2 assisted with accessing the engine compartment and overhaul.  Upon extinguishment, E2 was cleared by NFD and left the scene to return to quarters.

Saturday, February 11 at approximately 5:19 pm:

E2 and R1 responded to a report of a single vehicle accident involving a vehicle striking the center divider on the interstate. Both units arrived without incident to find a single vehicle collision with the occupant sitting in the vehicle. E2 established Incident Command, checked for hazards and assessed and treated the minor wounds of the PT until EMS arrived and care was transferred. EMS transported the PT non-emergency to an area hospital.

Tuesday, February 14 at approximately 12:43 pm:

All BFR units were dispatched on a report of a structure fire. A passerby noted smoke coming from the roof of a residence. Car 5 arrived on scene first and established Incident Command. Car 5 was able to determine that the smoke was coming from the chimney of the house, not the roof. Contact with the homeowner confirmed that they had just started a fire in their fire place. With no hazards found, Car 5 cancelled all other responding units, terminated command, and left the scene.
