Ground breaking a new station, riding EMS calls, catch a fire

Meet Inerium Cheif ​Interim Chief Marc Bashoor, he would like the challange to turn this department around.

Ride with E38 and Medic 38 as they respond to medical calls -- bus vs. pedestrian – and then a blackout keeps them busy.

Station 12, Firefighter DeWhitt behind the wheel arrives on scene of a medical call -- every medical is dangerous in San Francisco. Plus, the need for commercial building inspections for dangerous substance or building code violations.

Morning, Engine 33 is out the door and down the road, they get on thier gear, Brian Stolly talks about being a Kentland man and a D.C Firefigher. We arrive on scene of vehicle accident. Back at the Station, a call comes in for a structure fire, both Engine 33 and Rescue 33 respond out the door. A day full of calls...then, we ride with one of the live-in volunteer firefighters in the buggy to a Box Call, this could be a fire...it's at the Six Flags Theme park and by the Radio Chatter, it's HUGE.

New Station, Meet a PIO, Volunteer Chief and his Antique Engine, catch-a-fire

This morning, Chief Kelleher and the crew clean the rigs, the get thrashed in the winter; a call comes in, it's supporting a Hazmat Incident at NASA; it's by invitation only, and even then, you can't just walk in.

Many combination Depts egos get in the way of the job, not at Westampton. Here, you can't tell who is paid and who is a volunteer and that's why we are filming here. In this show, we ride with both to a fire. The morning starts off with an auto accident at a very dangerous well-known "T" intersection. Then comes the pranks.

This 24/7 starts with roll-call at Station 17, this roll-call includes Deputy Chief Whiting, now the Assistant Chief. The Columbus Fire Department maintains the hydrants so seasonally, twice a year, they all must be tested, maintained or reported for service. Next, a tour of the Rescue rig with one of the technicians, he shows us the tools they use. Next, we ride on Engine 17 to a vehicle fire, it's blazing, then, a man down on a bike, then they catch another call, busy station.
