Thursday, September 11 at approximately 5:15 pm:

E1 and R1 were dispatched on a report of a vehicle accident with injuries.  E1 arrived on scene to find a two car rear end type collision with two occupants still inside one of the vehicles.  Command was established and crew members made contact with the two vehicle occupants.  The occupants were complaining of neck and back pain but were not trapped inside the vehicle.  Command cancelled R1.  BFR personnel initiated spinal immobilization and checked the vehicles for hazards.  EMS arrived on scene and both patients were moved to the ambulance.  EMS transported the patients to a local hospital and E1 remained on scene to assist with traffic control until the roadway could be cleared.

Monday, September 15 at approximately 12:49 pm:

All BFR units and FFD Station 3 units were dispatched on a report of a commercial structure fire in district 3.  Initial dispatch information indicated an electrical burning smell was present throughout the structure.  FFD units arrived on scene first to find a single story commercial structure with nothing showing.  BFR E3 arrived on scene and teamed up with FFD personnel to investigate the interior of the structure.  Command cancelled all other responding units.  The interior and all void spaced of the structure were checked for any evidence of fire.  The smell was determined to have come from the HVAC unit that appeared to have malfunctioned.  The property manager was advised to have the unit inspected before using it again.  With no further hazards occupants were allowed back inside the structure and all FD units cleared the scene.
