As a person who does this job because they care, it can only be difficult with anxiety hidden by 1st responders in these mountains to be hopeful that they arrive on-scene in time to save their patient. They arrive on-scene where on patient self extricated and the other is trapped in the vehicle. Upon returning to the station, they grab they Water Rescue Survival gear and head to an indoor pool to train to get in the gear and float in the pool. Back at the station, a call comes in, it's a house not far from the station where smoke is filling the air of a home owner.
