Today, we start off with a ride on what was the fastest fireboat of it's size in the world at that time. This craft came down from it's shipyard in Canada, and it was not exactly smooth sailing. The company's Captain hits a sandbar on its journey and was late to arrive when we jump on. We were escorted to Marjorie Park Yacht Basin's docks by Porposis as they race along the boa. Next, we join the crew back at Station 4 in the Ybor City part of Tampa. First call of the day is a medical. They arrive on scene to see a man down in a parking lot – he is having convulsions. At night, a call comes in. This one is a police assist for a criminal needing care. Then, it's a person needing help at the food court followed by someone beat up at a club.
