Fire Chief's Briefing for January 6 through January 11, 2013

Here is a summary of Brentwood Fire and Rescue’s emergency responses for the period of January 6 through January 11, 2013.

We responded to 53 emergency calls for service.

These calls can be broken down into the following categories:

Fire: 1

EMS/Rescue: 28

Hazardous Condition: 2

Service Call: 4

Good Intent: 3

False Call: 15

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

Sunday, January 6 at approximately 2:39 pm:

All BFR units were dispatched on a report of an oven fire. While enroute, responding units were advised by dispatch that the fire had been extinguished. All units reduced to a non-emergency response with the exception of E2. Upon arrival E2 found no fire but that the exhaust fan switch in the hood vent had melted due to high heat. Power to the range was disconnected, and with no other hazards found, all units were cleared from the scene.

Monday, January 7 at approximately 1:27 pm:

E1 was dispatched on a report of a vehicle fire. This incident occurred on Hillsboro Road near the city limits and bordering Davidson County. Due to the location of the call and E1 being at training, mutual aid was requested from both Nashville Fire and Williamson County Rescue Squad. E1 arrived first on scene and found one vehicle with the engine compartment fully involved with fire. While E1’s crew was extinguishing, the mutual aid units arrived on scene and provided manpower. The vehicle was extinguished, and with no further hazards found, all units from all agencies cleared the scene and returned to quarters.
