Last night the call for First Responders was for one of our own Fire Fighters, he got bucked off his 6 year old daughters horse, unconscious, mouth full of arena dirt, nothing like being called for one of your own, he will be fine, out of hospital today, concussion, broken arm.
6 car MVA on RT 90 (NYS State Thruway) 4 cars in the West mound lane and 2 more cars in the East bound lane. At the same time. Weather conditions with heavy rain put at least 2 feet of water on the road across both travel directions.
Last week had a house call for a kitchen fire, turns out the lady just smoked the place up good, just vented with fans and monitered the air conditions. Sunday morning had a one vechile 10-50, no one injured just helped with traffic until the wrecker arrived to tow it. Did spend all day on saturday at the neighboring fire dept with our platform for kids fire camp day, was pretty fun actually and the kids had a blast.
