About this creation


















































This morning, a 911 call came in from a building site in StuddsVille, a crane mechanic got stuck on the arm of the crane.

Dispatch immediatly sent SOC, Ladder 14 and Rescue 5 to the scene.

Rescue 5 arrived first and saw the mechanic sitting on the fully extended crane arm.

The crews quickly changed to climbing gear, and 2 members from rescue 5 climbed to the unfortunate mechanic to provide first aid.

When the 2 firefighter where with the mechanic, Ladder 14 arrived and started setting up the ladder to reach the men on the crane.

In 5 minutes the ladder was set, and the 2 other firefighters of Rescue 5 climbed up with hydraulig spreaders, and freed the mechanic in no time, when his condition was assesed, he was lowered to the ground on a special skid stretcher via the ladder.

Once on the ground the mechanic was checked over by SVEMS paramedics, and was rushed to hospital with a severly injured arm, but due to the efford of the firefighters and paramedics, his arm could be saved.

After a quick debriefing, the firefighters returned home, and the crane was fixed by another mechanic.

Quoting paul mc keever well i liked that crane when it came out
No boubt about that, its neat, but i expected more from it, or at least decent outriggers, the ones on it are too weak and fall off fast. -MM

Quoting Lego Fire Museum Inc. Sounds good. Not many of the guys here might know what we are writing about. I am glad to see that you are using the Incident Command System even at a two company operation.
Thanks for the comment. And I know from real life expierence that a good Incident command needs to be established first, so at my fire department all officers are trained to take IC when needed. And sometimes the captain/lieutenant has more expierence in certain operation then the Chief, so then operational command is given to the most expierenced man on the scene, not the highest rank. The chief then goes to safety officer, and it works like a charm, so i used it for my MOC too.

Quoting paul mc keever great job i always wanted that crane set
I wouldnt recommend the crane, its very unstable. Especially the outiggers, they dont provide much stability to the rig when in operation.

Quoting Lego Fire Museum Inc. Nice. Did you have a second chief respond to be the safety officer?
No, Rescue 5's captain was Incident commander, SOC chief was safety officer, assisted by the captain of Ladder 14 ;-)
