E2 was dispatched on a medical call for a report of a patient with chest pain.  E2 arrived on scene to find one patient being tended to by bystanders.  BFR crew members immediately began obtaining vital signs while E2’s paramedic obtained an EKG.  The patient was placed on oxygen while a 12-lead EKG was obtained and examined by the paramedic.  EMS arrived on scene and patient care was transferred. E2 personnel assisted with moving the patient to the ambulance and further on scene care including IV access.  The patient was transported to a local hospital and E2 returned to service.

Sunday, February 16 at approximately 11:34 pm:

E4, R1 and C3 were dispatched on a report of a possible MVA with injuries.  E4 arrived on scene to find one vehicle off the roadway, upside down and on fire.  E4 personnel quickly checked the interior for occupants while simultaneously deploying a 1 ¾” attack line for extinguishment. It was verified that there were no occupants in or around the vehicle and the fire was quickly extinguished.  C3 was cancelled and R1 was asked to stage on scene.  Once all hazards were addressed control of the scene was transferred to BPD and BFR units returned to service and quarters.  The driver of the vehicle was later discovered to have left the scene on foot.
