We were at work Friday afternoon doing the usual training for the day. It was a busy morning for us medical after medical call. Then Engine 4 gets a medical call, they respond, then dispatch comes over the air Engine 4 this is dispatch.....nothing. Again, Engine 4 this is dispatch.....nothing. You could hear them going through the tacs, then something you never want to hear. Truck 4 respond to Huron church and the bridge we have a report engine 4 has been in an accident. Everyones heart drops and wait anxiously for any news. We need police and 4 ambulances.
January I started working at Staion 7, last year I was at staion 4 and rode that same engine. My brother works at station 4 on the other side of those groups...that means that everyother shift he works with the guys involved in that accident. Not only that, the most serious hurt was in his recruit class 14 years ago. These 4 guys personify the Fire Department. They live, breathe, and are the real thing. The one guy actually bought his own fire truck and entertains the neighbourhood kids in the summer.
Please keep them in your thoughts and prayers .They are going to need it.
