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

Thursday, July 26 at approximately 1:12 pm:

E1 was dispatched on a report of injuries from a fall. Upon arrival, crew members found 1 PT who had fallen off a ladder onto concrete. A rapid trauma assessment was performed, which revealed an obvious deformity to the PT’s shoulder. No other injuries were discovered. As E1 began to package the PT for transport, EMS arrived on scene and PT care was transferred. The PT was loaded into the ambulance for emergency transport to an area hospital.

Friday, July 27 at approximately 11:12 pm:

E4 was dispatched on a report of a single vehicle rollover accident. The driver and only occupant of the vehicle was already out and speaking to EMS when E4 arrived on scene. Crew members assisted EMS with packaging the PT for transport as well as treating numerous cuts to the PT’s extremities. A rapid trauma assessment was performed, and signs of a broken nose and possibly broken facial bones were found. The PT stated that they had been texting and lost control of their vehicle, which struck a curb and a tree before rolling over and coming to rest on the passenger side. EMS transported the PT non-emergency to an area hospital for further treatment. E4 remained on scene to provide lighting and assist with clearing debris and other hazards from the roadway.


Saturday, July 28 at approximately 12:35 am:

E1 was dispatched on a report of arcing electrical equipment. Crew members arrived on scene to find an automatic grass sprinkler that was spraying into an open electrical box. The box was missing the cover, which would have protected it from the sprinkler. E1’s firefighter was able to turn off the sprinkler head, and the rest of the crew wrapped the open electrical box with caution tape to help secure it. The proper utility company was notified of the need to make repairs. With no other hazards found, E1 cleared the scene and returned to quarters.
