TheBattalion.tv Firefighter Series - Fire, EMS, Rescue, Training
Station 10's Firefighters talk about what it's like being part of the busiest station in the nation. Wagon Driver Greg Thompson recalls the unique experience of taking his son, and fellow recruit, on a training exercise -- a Live Burn. Now his son is a recruit. It's a family tradition in the making. Riding with the crew on engine 10, we respond to a fire, where they drop at the hydrant and pull a line. The next call is an EMS call where truck 13 arrives on-scene. Captain Donny keeps the guys on their toes on every call. Griff is riding on the ambo today, and he hates it. Back at the station we see what it's like to sit at the watch desk.
This 24 starts with roll-call. Then, we see what's going on in the kitchen. Truck 15's "2" Unit tillerman, Thomas (Butch) Cain, jumps on the computer looking for some new gloves, then; it's time to check the tools on the truck. So far, It's a really slow day, something you never say, mostly Engine and EMS Captain calls. Night falls, a call comes in, we are out the door...we arrive on-scene of an row-home apartment fire.
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.

A call comes in for a structure fire at a park, the Mini-Pumper is dispatched with only two firefighters. Upon arriving on scene, it's a huge vegetation fire. With limited water supply, they have to disconnect the line, fill the tank, and return to the fire and hook back up, This is done several times and the danger is a large tree on fire that can fall on a building on the property. The fire is out, now, the task of downing the tree, not that easy...
