Mountainfest – Day 3

The final day of Mountainfest was the biggest and busiest day for the members of SCVFD/SCEMS. As thousands of motorcycles and spectators attended the various shows and activities of the rally many people needed the assistance of SCVFD/SCEMS. Thankfully many of those that Company 20 contacted only needed general assistance and were able to refuse/did not need transport, but those that did need treatment and transport were expertly treated by the members of SCVFD/SCEMS.

Not only did Company 20 remain able to provide high level care and coverage for Mountainfest, but also Company 20 was dispatched to an industrial structure fire in our 2nd due. Crews from Engine 201, Squad 203, Unit 202, and Unit 206 provided back-up interior attack crews, RIT, rehab and accountability for the incident. Due to the quick response of Co. 17, 20, 23 and 13 the turbine fire was able to be contained and extinguished quickly and all units were able to clear from scene within approximately an hour and a half of dispatch.
