TheBattalion.tv Firefighter Series - Fire, EMS, Rescue, Training
Station 26's newbie drives tiller this night while a seasoned veteran prepares to retire. We arrive on an EMS Call where an ederly patient with diabetes is crashing, hard of hearing and does not want to go to the hospital; just the reverse of most ederly that may just want someone to talk to and spend a quiet night at the hospital. The crew stay with the gentelman for hours feeding him peanut butter sandwitches and Dr. Pepper; he comes back to life on his own: a happy ending
Lt. Duck is one of the very few that is always training his crews, Engine, Truck and the Ambo. It's been snowing and cold so he sets up training in the center of the apparatus floor; this is about trust your brothers.
Station 17, roll-call. The young Probie, you've seen him in several early webisodes....arrives to his first real roll call. And as usual, just after roll-call... he's transferred to Station 10; we'll catch up with him later. So, we hang with Rescue 17's crew, EMS call to a muni-bus, next call, smoke at a restaurant. Night falls, a call comes in, it's a structure fire just down the street and who do we find at his first fire?
The night ends with a structure fire started by an electrical problem created by a contractor doing an re-model. All engine companies must test their hose lines periodically, and today is that day for the "A" Shift. Late afternoon, a hot-water heater fire in a garage destroysa young girl's birthday, and then late night, a call comes in for a commercial fire at an office complex. This is where we first meet Captain Oney Durney, who is nearing retirement and a is true Fireman's Fireman; he's always training.
