At 3:25 on a scorching afternoon on 25th May 2012 the Stud County emergency dispatch (SCED) recieved a call from a motorcyclist in lego ranges national park. He said there was some grass on fire and it looked like there was a child inside the fire. The dispatcher sent NBCFD tanker 1, MedLink medic 20, and SCFD brush 1. MedLink medic 20 was first on scene, but there was nothing the EMT could do until the FFs arrived. Tanker 1 arrived 2 mins later, and the crew attached the hose to a rare hydrant which was luckily nearby and started to extinguish the fire. Brush 1 arrived 9 mins later, as the SCFD station is slightly further away and also it's volonteer.
About this creation
SCFD brush 1 arrived and the crew got a fire extinguisher and attack line and helped the crew of tanker 1 to extinguish the fire.
It turned out it was just an old teddy bear!
The man was greatly thanked, as grass fires spread very quickly, especially on days as hot as this one today in Stud county. He also said that "The emergency services responded so quickly! We're so lucky here in Stud county that we have such great ones!"
It was an absolutely beautiful day here in Norfolk, England as you can see!
You can see where it happened. The red dot is the incident, and the blue ones are where the units responded from.
Love it. But the SCFD is braking some environmental rules by using a fire extinguisher in a national park. I hope it wasn't a dry chemical fire extinguisher otherwise the SCFD could be facing some big fines. Over all grate job.
