LOS ANGELES, CA:
GREATER ALARM STRUCTURE FIRE:


On Thursday, January 01, 2004, at 0636 hours (6:36 a.m.), eleven companies of Los Angeles Firefighters, three Battalion Officer Command Teams, one Battalion EMS Supervisor, and five LAFD Rescue Ambulances, under the direction of Battalion Commander Roderick J. Garcia, responded to a Greater Alarm Structure Fire at 410 South Hobart Boulevard in the Hancock Park/Mid-city area. First units on the scene reported a three-story apartment building over garages, with heavy smoke showing from one unit on the first floor. Firefighters using handlines aggressively attacked the fire confining the fire to the one unit and extinguished the fire in twenty-four minutes. As a result of the fire there were two reported injuries: a 28 year old male suffered first and second degree burns to his face and body and a 29 year old male suffered first degree burns to his face and both were transported to Hollywood Presbyterian Hospital in good condition. Approximately two hundred people were evacuated from the first floor of the apartment as a safety precaution and no other injuries were reported. The cause of the fire is listed as “careless smoking”. Fire damage is estimated at $18,000 ($10,000 structure and $ 8,000 contents)

APSN was founded by true emergency professionals that are more than just scanner listeners. We specialize in notifying you about major fire and police events as they happen around the entire State of Arizona. Our professional staff knows what news is, and we do not send minor, non newsworthy events. All television, talk radio & newspapers in Phoenix currently use APSN. When you receive an alert from APSN, you will want to know what is happening! Why wait for the evening news when you can have the news, as it happens, delivered directly to your pager or email address! How do we notify you? That is your option. Although alpha numeric pagers have proven to be the fastest form of notification, we can notify any email address that you may have. That means we can send alerts to your PDA, 2-Way pager, cell phone, or personal email.

For paging groups around the country, we use the FNNM national system for multiple alarm or newsworthy incidents. We prefer to receive incidents via SNPP but can receive via dial up modem.
