Firefighter/engineer Chris Garcia's family drops by for Easter Sunday with their Day. The guys are in the kitchen cooking up lunch when a call comes. They are down the pole and onto the rig and they arrive on scene to a shooting. The police had been in a pursuit of some gangsters in a black SUV. They found them, gave them a spin, and had to shoot. The guy they shoot is suspected to be a killer. Next up, a vehicle accident. Night falls and a call comes in for a commercial structure fire; Eng. 3's "A" Shift is 1st in on a Antique Store owned by a hoarder.
Riding with Paul, the call; a vehicle accident
Ride on one of the fastest fire boats in the word
It's 4th of July in San Francisco and we ride with Medic 2 to the the park – it's a head gash. We then follow Rescue 2, a few calls with E7, they help a man who just wants to talk to somebody. The Captain takes his time and shows the man respect. Next it's a possible fire in an apartment building which leads to a busy night including a large vegetation fire. Meet the B.C. who is about to retire and Division Chief Frank Cardinale.
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.
Engine 13 takes a call in a local neighborhood. The crew arrives to find that the victim in a possible suicidal attempt is a close friend of the Captain.
The night ends with a structure fire started by an electrical problem created by a contractor doing an re-model. All engine companies must test their hose lines periodically, and today is that day for the "A" Shift. Late afternoon, a hot-water heater fire in a garage destroysa young girl's birthday, and then late night, a call comes in for a commercial fire at an office complex. This is where we first meet Captain Oney Durney, who is nearing retirement and a is true Fireman's Fireman; he's always training.
The 2nd half of this 48 with Eng. 3's "A" Shift. Firefighter Silva is on a strict diet and a full regiment of exercises; he takes advantage of whatever time he has in between the large volume of calls at Station 3. A call comes in for an additional engine needed at a fire out in the west side of town. There's no hydrants out here. They are called off and head back to the station. On the way, they drive through one of Fresno's many homeless camps. They have overtaken the Downtown Fresno Area and it has become a very dangerous place full of drugs, prostitution and people that prey on others. A call comes in and they are out the door...and so much more.
From training to saving a life, and it's not even noon.
