Fire Chief's Briefing for June 8 through June 13, 2012

Here is a summary of Brentwood Fire and Rescue’s emergency responses for the period of June 8 through June 13, 2012.

We responded to 36 emergency calls for service.

These calls can be broken down into the following categories: 

EMS/Rescue: 24

Hazardous Condition: 1

Service Call: 5

Good Intent: 4

False Call: 2

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

Sunday, June 10 at approximately 12:27 pm:

E2 was dispatched on a report of uncontrollable bleeding. Upon arrival crew members found 1 PT lying on the floor and bleeding heavily from their leg. Bystanders had attempted to control the bleeding but had been unsuccessful. E2 notified the responding EMS unit that the PT was critical, and that they would need to be immediately loaded into the ambulance for emergency transport. While the ambulance was being prepared, E2’s crew applied additional bandages and assessed the PT. Initially the PT was unresponsive but began to awaken as they were treated. PT care was transferred, the PT was loaded into the ambulance, and E2 assisted with starting dual IV’s, cardiac monitoring, advanced airway management and oxygen therapy. The PT was transported emergency traffic to an area hospital for further treatment.

Monday, June 11 at approximately 6:51 pm:

E3 responded to a report of a fallen tree which had struck a vehicle and knocked down a power line.  Upon arrival, crew members found that a tree had fallen onto a parked car and the electrical service to a home. The vehicle was crushed at the roof on the right rear corner and the rear glass was shattered. The electrical service was down but still connected to the power pole. The appropriate utility company was contacted, and responded to the scene to secure the power. Once they had arrived and the scene was made safe, E-3 assisted the home owner with cutting limbs out of the way in order to clear a path for the new service to be installed. After cutting limbs and pulling them to the road, E3 returned to service.
