  • What is your most memorable call?

    Just wondering what your most memorable call was. Fire or EMS, doesn't matter. Everybody has that one that just sticks out, some were good calls, some were very bad calls. The call that makes you go "Hey, this is for real."

      April 3, 1991 03:00hrs I was a Johnnie Puke Lieut. First Due to a fully involved two story wood frame split level sigle family occupancy. Learned alot of lessons about occupoied structures...Thank the Lord I had a experienced Chief on scene. We streched a line into what, at the time, I never thought we could get into. The vinyl siding on the house had burned and the grass was on fire. There was fire coming out of all windows but one. We made a good aggressive attack but were unable to rescue the 4 year old girl inside...it seems to me and every
      one at the fire there was a delay in notification. The occupants were running a chop shop out of the back yard and in the house. Tremendous amount of fire upon arrival it is amazing what you can do with a open bore nozzle...In 1995 we had another occupied structure fire and had a very similar crew on the firsr due engine and we were able to get the people out. We pulled the 21/2" and we were able to get more info about the whereabouts of the victims/got them both out but one died later.

      Good luck, stay low, stay safe,

        It's not much, but It sure sticks with me. I was a rookie on a volunteer dept quite a few years ago. The tones went off for something, I don't even remember what. But when I came around the corner at the station with my red light on, there was an elderly lady who had stepped out on her porch to watch us. She smiled and gave me a "thumbs up" as I ran into the station. Right then and there, I knew this was for keeps.

            My most memorable call was early on a Saturday morning in 1994. I awoke to an explosion and it just happened my neighbors house was the source. I ran out to rescue him while others in the neighborhood were fleeing their home with no regard for their neighbor. After the rest of the guys got to the fire a body shop on the other side of the street exploded injuring 5. Turned out to be a broken natural gas main under the street, it had snowed significantly during the night and there had been cold temps for some time trapping the gas underground where it found a vent in my neighbors basement. Learned alot about natural gas that day.
