Saturday, June 7 at approximately 12:23 am:

All BFR units were dispatched on a report of a residential structure fire.  A BPD unit in the area was able to confirm an active fire at the location.  E2 arrived first on scene to find a two story residential structure with heavy fire on the rear of the structure along with visible flames and heavy black smoke coming from the front of the house.  E11 arrived on scene and assisted E2 personnel with deploying a pre-connected 1 ¾” hand-line while E2’s officer performed a 360⁰ walk around of the structure.  Other fire units quickly began to arrive on scene and stretched additional attack lines as well as establishing a connection to the fire hydrant.  BFR personnel worked quickly and effectively to extinguish the fire and keep it confined to one section of the house.  Nolensville FD was requested to respond to the scene to provide manpower for the overhaul process.  With no further hazards found all units were placed available and control of the scene was transferred to the Fire Marshal for investigation into the cause of the fire.           

Monday, June 9 at approximately 9:13 am: 

E4 and R1 were dispatched on a report of a MVA with injuries.  R1 arrived on scene to find a three car MVA with multiple patients.  BFR personnel quickly triaged the patients and began treating the most severely injured patient first.  E4 arrived on scene to treat the remaining patient.  Both patients were immobilized to prevent further possible injury to their spine.  EMS arrived on scene and both patients were removed from the vehicle to the ambulance.  BFR personnel assisted EMS with further on scene care.  The patients were transported emergency traffic to a local hospital.  Once all hazards were addressed, control of the scene was transferred to BPD and BFR units returned to service.

Tuesday, June 10 at approximately 10:58 pm: 

E4 and C3 were dispatched on a medical call for a report of imminent child birth. EMS and E4 arrived on scene simultaneously and found the PT ready to deliver the child. Crew members from both Williamson Medical Center EMS and Brentwood Fire assisted the mother with an otherwise uneventful delivery inside the residence. Immediately following delivery of the child both mother and child were loaded into the ambulance for transport to an area hospital.
