We responded to 36 emergency calls for service.

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

Tuesday, April 3 at approximately 12:06 pm:
E3 and Squad 3 (Fire Station 3’s pickup truck) were dispatched on a HAZMAT call for a report of oil in the roadway.  Squad 3 arrived first on scene and reported approximately 10 quarts of oil on the roadway.  The oil had been spread by traffic throughout the center eastbound lane of Moores Lane.  Dispatch requested public works to respond with sand to spread over the spill.  E3 and PD arrived on scene to assist with traffic control.  Fire units assisted public works with spreading the sand.  After the sand was spread and the hazards were mitigated, the scene was turned over to PD.  EMA was contacted regarding the spill.  E3 and Squad 3 were placed available and returned to their prior assignment.

Thursday, April 5 at approximately 9:28 pm:
E4 responded to a tree down in the roadway.  E4 arrived on scene to find the top of a large tree blocking half of Walnut Hills Dr.  BPD was already on scene for traffic control.  E4 used a utility chain saw to remove the tree from the roadway.  There were no other hazards, E4 cleared the scene and returned to quarters.
