Fire Chief's Briefing for November 20 thorugh November 25, 2013

Here is a summary of Brentwood Fire and Rescue’s emergency responses for the period of November 20 through November 25, 2013.

We responded to 45 emergency calls for service.

These calls can be broken down into the following categories:

Fire: 2

EMS/Rescue: 23

Hazardous Condition: 2

Service Call: 7

Good Intent: 5

False Call: 6

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

Saturday, November 23 at approximately 8:29 pm:

E3 was dispatch on a medical call for a report of a patient having a seizure.  E3 arrived on scene and made contact with patient who was actively seizing.  BFR personnel provided advanced life support including cardiac monitoring and securing the patients airway.  EMS arrived on scene and the patient was rapidly moved to the ambulance.  EMS transported the patient emergency traffic to a local hospital with 1 member of E3’s crew aboard to assist with care.

Sunday, November 24 at approximately 10:47 pm:

E4 responded to a “drive-up” medical call outside Station 4 for injuries from a fall.  BFR personnel made patient contact and performed a rapid trauma assessment.  Spinal immobilization was initiated while E4’s officer contacted EMS.  The patient was secured to a spine board and moved to the back of the ambulance.  Once all on scene care was completed the patient was transported to a local hospital and E4 personnel returned to quarters.

Sunday, November 24 and Saturday, November 25:

E3 responded to two reported structure fires in the city limits of Franklin to provide mutual aid.  The incidents were located in the BFR/FFD automatic aid area so E3 was dispatched at the same time as FFD units.  E3 was asked to stage near the incident scene in case more personnel were needed for fire ground operations.  Fortunately, both incidents only caused minor damage and E3 was released by FFD Command.
