Fire Chief's Briefing for July 17 through July 22, 2013

Here is a summary of Brentwood Fire and Rescue’s emergency responses for the period of July 17 through July 22, 2013.

We responded to 44 emergency calls for service.

These calls can be broken down into the following categories:

Fire: 1

EMS/Rescue: 28

Hazardous Condition: 1

Good Intent: 5

False Call: 9

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

Wednesday, July 17 at approximately 4:34 am:

E2 and R1 were dispatched to a report of an MVA with a report of a vehicle striking a backhoe. Upon arrival, crew members found one PT complaining of abdominal pain. BFR personnel immobilized the PT and removed them from the vehicle before transferring care to EMS. The PT was transported non-emergency to an area hospital for further treatment and evaluation.

Wednesday, July 17 at approximately 2:23 pm:

E4 was dispatched on a report of ingestion of insect killer. Upon arrival crew members found 2 children showing no signs of distress. The consumed product was located and poison control was contacted. After speaking with poison control, it was determined that the children could not have ingested enough of the substance to cause them any harm. The parents of the children were contacted and care was transferred to EMS. Once the parents arrived and the situation was explained, care was turned over to the parents and E4 returned to quarters.

Saturday, July 20 at approximately 8:44 am:
E2, C1, C3, C5 and Squad 1 (driven by the crew of L1) were dispatched for Mutual Aid with the City of Fairview for a commercial structure fire. Upon arrival of BFR crew members the fire was under control and the structure was being overhauled to ensure complete extinguishment. BFR was assigned to HAZMAT and assisted with identifying and researching the hazardous materials located on the scene. Multiple flammable liquids were present and units from all fire departments on scene were evacuated from the structure once overhaul was complete. BFR remained on standby until released by command.
