Busy day for JFRD, a back robbery on the northside involving swat and hostages. Engines 9 and 24, Squad 37, Ladder 9 and rescues 15, 24, 26, 33, 36, 37 were all on standby for the incident. Meanwhile on the Southside a multi vehicle crash brought Battlion 3, EMS 4 Engines 21, 28, 30, Squad 12, Ladder 30, Tower 21, Rescues 21, 28, 28A, 30 and Tanker 28
So while I was working as a student today the station I was at did some training. St. John's county fire rescue Station 5 with Squad 4 worked on extrication training, got to see new engines 8 and 12 (twin quantums) and got info on new apparatus coming to SJCFR. Plus I got to ride on the new Dodge Ram Braun rescue, excellent ride quality, a fantastic piece of apparatus!
