Wednesday, October 29 at approximately 5:45 pm:

E2, R1, C3 and E4 were dispatched on a report of a student calling in a fire at a local school. The caller indicated that the fire was out, but made numerous calls to 911 changing their story as well as the location of the fire. Upon arriving on scene at the school, BFR units determined that there was no fire. BPD tracked down the caller and determined that the calls were malicious false alarms.  With no hazards present, the matter was referred to BPD and all BFR units returned to quarters.

Thursday, October 30 at approximately 4:44 pm:

E2 and R1 were dispatched to a rollover accident on I-65. Upon arriving on scene crew members made contact with the driver of the vehicle who had self-extricated from the wrecked vehicle. The driver was complaining of neck, leg and back pain as a result of the wreck, so full spinal immobilization was initiated. EMS arrived on scene, PT care was transferred and the PT was transported non-emergency to an area hospital for further treatment.
