AREA SUMMARY (QTB N REPORT) (neighborhood
summary / average).
During drill a
brief lesson plan explanation was given.
Scripted smoke check reports were provided for this session to
allow stations to “refresh” themselves on how to report, and the
specific procedures. Also, the Triangulation station and Net Control
were testing a revised mapping system. This is part of the background
work being done that people don’t hear.
Also, a brief overview of the response to the Midway Emergency
Medical Situation was given. Monitoring Cal Fire 20 allowed alerting of
situation – male, age __, non responsive, [address]. Midway neighbors
(Radio Operators) made an all hands on deck response. This
included: a nurse going to
the scene; another person responded with a Defibrillator; and another person positioned himself on the street to guide Cal
Fire and the Ambulance to the exact location. All of that was done
BEFORE Cal Fire and the Ambulance arrived.
keep Ron and his wife in our prayers and may he make a full recovery!
