Saturday was a busy day for accidents with companies 37 and 38. The morning started with a accident with confinement dispatched in the 38-5 box bringing the rescue to assist. Crews arrived and assisted company 38 with vehicle stabilization and patient extrication. Crews also investigated a secondary accident occurring as a result from the first. Crews remained on location about 40 mins before returning to service.
Later in the day company 37 was alerted for a reported structure fire in the 37-1 box. PD on location reporting smoke showing from the exterior. Safety officer Reist arrived on location and advised burnt food and held it to the uptown engine for ventilation.
Upon being placed available from that call the Rescue was once again alerted for a 38 box for an accident with entrapment. Engine 37 already on the street contacted command and responded in place of the rescue. The uptown crews responded to station 2 to cover the rescue if it was needed. Engine 37 arrived on location and took up a blocking position with negative entrapment on scene.
