We started filming with the San Francisco Fire Department in 2003. It was our fight against prime-time television that drove us to the Internet. In 2007 we launched our series thinking it would only be one or two videos. In those days, you could put short videos on AOL, Google and Yahoo...then came this. This is the very first Battalion Series webisode. In those days we were only able to film until 11:00PM. It starts with the crews checking the rigs and the medical supplies, and an EMS call comes in. The engine company responds.
Ride with E38 and Medic 38 as they respond to medical calls -- bus vs. pedestrian – and then a blackout keeps them busy.
At Station 9 we continue this night with smoke showing at a school we ride with Battalion Chief Sorrano, next up, we ride with the crew from Engine 9 to a vehicle accident on the 101, The next morning, we are back at Station 11 riding with Truck 11, an alarm has gone off at at school. Next up, it's a call with the crew on the engine and these are the Medical EMS Calls that can kill a first responder. Its now madatory to wear gloves, but it should be MANADATORY TO WEAR GOGGLES as we see why, the Pathogens that can kill a 1st Responder.
