One of the first things they do at the start of a shift is do a good work out in the exercise room.
Not long after their workout, Dispatch toned us for the first of three medical assistance calls that morning. In the engine we quickly climbed and we rolled out.
After lunch they washed and dried the water tender that was parked in the bay next to the engine.
Station 2 paid us a visit with their engine to pick up supplies.
Late in the day, they got a call from 911 Dispatch of a motorhome and car on fire.
This brought to a close my interesting day with the VERY professional crew of Medic Engine 331. Last year, the three active Apple Valley Fire Protection District stations responded to a little over 10,500 calls. In the first part of this month, Engine 331 responded to three (3) major house fires. In one of those house fires, they found a dead body after the fire was out. An investigation showed that the person did not die as a result of the fire. You just never know what awaits firefighters when that alarm goes off in the station.
