    Post New Years Eve/New Years Day Calls

    I was just curious on how busy your departments were during the holiday. Here in Juneau, Alaska, We have had a total of two calls, both EMS, in the last 24 hours. VERY SLOW!!

    We had a possible structure call. Upon arrival, all responding mutual-aid companies were canceled. The fire was contained to an area in one room, and crews were back @ quarters within an hour. Besides that, nothing else.

    Our department does not take in EMS calls, however, since NJ had so much snow, our standby crew took in an odd call. PD on the scene were having trouble walking back and forth into the house because of the snow, and would also hinder BLS and ALS. So we responded to shovel snow! That was our call.

    We had our first call of the new year today at 16:16 hrs, a "smell of smoke" was called in. The new chief took command.

    This New Years has been the one of the most busiest 3 day periods in my department's 102 year history, as JR95 said, NJ got hit with a lot of snow, so the snow standby yielded many calls to a trailer park for senior citizens, because the snow covered their furnace exhaust pipe and snuffed out the pilots, no real big deal, on Saturday alone we had about 35 silent alarms to the park. Though the big incident was late monday night, one of the houses that had its pilot snuffed was one that the residents were not home, I assume they were on vacation or something of the sorts, but for still unknown reasons that trailer home exploded, from the filling of the house of propane gas, which yielded a moderate but stubborn working structure fire, it took a few hours for my department and our neighboring department Monroe District 1 to extinguish the blazes which flared up constantly. The house was reduced to rubble, that was the biggie of the weekend, though we had a few more calls besides that, so quite the busy new year's weekend. Though I wish everyone a safe and happy 2001.

    Our dept. ran one call New years day. An assist a nieghboring dept. with smoke in the building in a minimum security prison. Our ladder was the first unit on the scene. I responded to the engine house and barely missing the pumper/tanker/rescue gooing out the door. So i was the one and only firefighter to man the rescue truck. They were on the scene for an hour and a half. That was the only call that day!

    1. Not exactly the right thread for this dude.
    2. You guys get issued helmets- you won't be able to use a New Yorker over here as they are not WorkCover approved (Cairns 660CAS METRO helmets are used for Structural work in NSW - NSWFB)
    3. Its called Ebay!

    Wow Larry. You actually brought up a thread from 2001 just to post something totally irrelevant to the topic.
    If someone with multiple personalities threatens to kill himself, is it considered a hostage situation?

    I think the new Anti-HT patrol should do something about this!

    As my cohort said, we will continue to monitor the situation.
