      Our first call was a CODE but it was an easy code a few rescue breaths and a precardio thump and the pt was back with us. So it looks like an interesting year ahead

            My FD's first call was @1510hrs for a fire reported out. Hope this doesn't set the tone for the rest of the year!!!

                  Engine went to a 3 alarm fire at a Tire service buisness. Laid 1,500 feet of a mile lay from a hydrant and turned around and went back to the Hydrant and pumped from it.
                  Rural area not many hydrants to use and they aren't the greatest either but, we managed to keep a Tower fed. There were 5 pumpers used in the lay with the last one feeding the Tower.
                  Years that start like this make you wonder whats next.

                    Unfortunately, our first call of the year was a working apartment fire at about 9:30 Tuesday morning. Nobody was home in the building (a two-unit converted house) and the basement was fully involved, with extension to he first floor, by the time it was called in by a passer-by.

                    I don't have many details, since I was in D.C. visiting friends for New Year's and missed the call entirely. Ironically, the passer-by who called it in was my sister, who was on her way home from my house after feeding my cat in my absence. How about that for wierd coincidences??

                      First Call of new Year - Brush Fire
                      Second Call - Brush Fire
                      Third Call - Brush Fire

                      I am REALLY hoping this is not a pattern for 2002.

                      on a side note - last call for 2001 was MA to an Apartment Complex Fire - confined to room & contents of 1 Apt. Excellent work by first in units.

                        First call of 2002 came at 0400 for mutual aid for a house fire. Fourth co. on scene. House completely destroyed. Saw owner on the sidewalk just crying, really sad, what a terrible way to start the new year.
                        Be safe...

                          Still waiting, but, part of me hopes it stays this quiet.

                          Just got our first of the year Last night (1/2/01), EMS Call, 62 yom c.o. chest pain, got there and it was a 62 yom having a stroke, family gave 3 NG. The guy was talking up a storm.

                            We had New Years Eve/New Years Day morning in my crew's shift, and it was a quiet night, as far as "first call of 2002."
                            Our "Last Call of 2001" was entertaining, if nothing else. A teaser, I guess. Report of house fire, umpteen pieces punched out. Go rolling up, and it's reported as out, but owner still requests the FD to check it out.
                            Evidently, with some of that good ol' liquid encouragement, the owner had decided to do some latenight charcoal grilling, and managed to set his deck on fire. It evidently had started extending into the home before some quick gardenhose action on his part knocked it down. (And as cold as it was, he's lucky, as I'd have already put my hose away in the shed. He hadn't, nor had it frozen up on him. Lucky!!!!)
                            One piece checked it out, took the report, the rest of us rolled back to the station.
                            The rest of the night was quiet - not even a drunk call!
                            Ya'll have a good & safe New Year!!
