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

Friday, October 18 at approximately 5:14 am:

E2 was dispatched on a medical call for a report of a possible heart attack.  E2 arrived on scene and made contact with the patient who was complaining of severe chest pain.  Crew members immediately initiated patient care and E2’s paramedic obtained an EKG.  EMS arrived on scene and patient care was transferred.  BFR personnel assisted EMS with moving the patient to the ambulance and providing further care.  EMS transported the patient emergency traffic to a local hospital and E2 returned to service.

Saturday, October 19 at approximately 1:38 pm:

E3 was dispatched to I-65 on a report of a vehicle fire.  E3 arrived on scene to find one vehicle on the side of the interstate with flames visible from the engine compartment.  Crew members pulled a 1 ¾” attack line and extinguished the fire.  Crew members were able to extinguish the fire before it reached the interior of the vehicle.  The driver of the vehicle indicated that they were driving down the interstate when smoke started coming from the engine compartment.  By the time the driver pulled over flames were visible under the hood.  E11 arrived on scene to assist E3 crew members with clean up.  The engine compartment of the vehicle was reassessed for any further fire.  Once all hazards were addressed E3 and E11 returned to service and quarters.
