Station 4 "C" Shift. The four man crew staffs the Tower Ladder Truck, The USAR Rig that is also used for Water Rescue; they wish they could be a combination station again. This 48 starts out with a the team going over the equipment necessary for finding victims of an earthquake that may be stuck under the rubble. Time to go shopping for chow for the next 48 hours and, back at the station, they cook their lunch. As busy as this station is, they still find time to exercise. A call comes in – a big roll of something has been found, possibly a wrapped body floating in the dangerous canals of Fresno. Both the Teams respond in the USAR rig. They arrived on scene filled with police and the citizens. The team puts on their gear and get to the bottom of the canal to see if this is a recovery effort.
