On February 10, 2013, Engine 91, HIT Squad 5 with Battalions 5 and 9 were dispatched for an Odor Investigation.
About this creation
Dispatch advised the responding companies that there were people feeling ill and short of breath on scene. And that a reddish cloud was coming from the neighbor's garage at 349 Main St. Upon arrival, the initial companies spoke with the callers and found that the house was vacant, but known to have unknown chemicals in the garage. The reddish cloud was confirmed. This prompted Battalion 9 to upgrade to a Level II Haz-Mat response and requested a full structure response.



Initial companies performed an evacuation and set up the Hot, Warm and Cold Isolation Zones. Engine 91 was assigned to the EMS sector and began triaging and ALS care of the occupant's of the neighboring home. Only one person was transported for shortness of breath.



The upgrade brought all of Johnstown's companies, Snorkel 84, Engine 52, a haz-mat from Westbrick and Lego Township, and a rehab/utility unit from Westbrick. Teams made 3 entries into the Hot Zone, using Level A suits. Each entry had a specific purpose.







The first was to identify the chemical, Red Fuming Nitric Acid. The second entry neutralized and contained the spill. The final entry was to pack the material into a containment drum.











A private contractor was called to remove the drum and destroy the material. The other chemicals found were also taken by the private contractor. HIT Squad 5 and Battalion 5 remained on scene with the contractor.







The Level II was secured after 2.5 hours of working time.

Quoting cyberfrank 2010 this sounded good, but, a brick of text, no narration, and small pics killed it for me, please fix it for a sequel.
The narration was in the "brick of text." If you read it, it tells you what is happening. You post things one way, I do them another, not everyone narrates as lengthy as others. FYI, my narration is more like a news summary and let I the pictures speak. I can understand the small pics, that was an error on my part. And there is no "sequel," the situation was secured.
