TheBattalion.tv Firefighter Series - Fire, EMS, Rescue, Training
Lt. Duck at the Flash-Over trainer - crew runs calls
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.
Night, after a long day, a call comes in, it's a structure fire, smoke showing, Engine 33 and Twoer 33 respond. The Deputy Chief is driving the engine, he stops at the hydrant, the Tower drives by and lands in the driveway of the structure. The pull lines, the enter the front door of the home, outside, they start to ventalite, the door is opened and we are inside the garage. After enough water has been used, the thermal imager camera is brought in to make sure that evey ember is out. Back at the station
