Thursday, August 23 at approximately 4:02 pm:
E2 was dispatched on a report of one PT who had fainted. Crew members arrived on scene to find PT lying on the ground exhibiting an altered level of consciousness. No one had witnessed the PT fall, but co-workers reported that the PT had been working with a driveway sealing chemical all day. A rapid assessment was performed, and it was determined that the most likely cause of the PT’s illness was the chemical fumes. The PT was removed from the immediate area of the work. EMS arrived on scene, PT care was transferred, and the PT was transferred to an area hospital for further care.
