VRFA fire and rescue blotter | April 4
The Valley Regional Fire Authority responded to 201 requests for service between March 24 and 30, among which were the following:
Aid call: 7:34 p.m., (Algona). After firefighters evaluated an Auburn senior who was suffering chest pain secondary to respiratory issues, a private ambulance transported her to MultiCare Auburn Medical Center (MAMC).
Aid call: 12:44 p.m., (Lakeland Hills). Firefighters administered oxygen therapy to a woman with a decreased level of consciousness before a private ambulance transported her to MAMC.
Aid call: 9 a.m., (Auburn). Firefighters assessed an older woman who was complaining of dizziness after an injection before escorting her to her private physician's office for more evaluation and treatment.
Aid call: 2:28 a.m., (Auburn). After firefighters treated a man who'd been complaining of left-side numbness that had awakened him from sleep, and spreading pain in his jaw, a private ambulance motored him to MAMC.
Smoke alarm: 8 a.m., (Auburn). Firefighters responding to a smoke detector sounding in an apartment across the breezeway from the reporting party's unit entered the apartment and found a woman asleep with food burning on her stove. Firefighters helped the woman out of her apartment and removed the food. Quick thinking of a young child across the breezeway in notifying his mother to call 911 may have reduced the potential for more damage.
Aid call: 10:56 a.m., (Lea Hill). After firefighters evaluated a woman who had missed a step and fallen, a private ambulance transported her to MAMC.
Fall: 10:33 p.m., (Pacific). Firefighters treated a man who had fallen and hit his head on the floor, and a private ambulance transported him to MAMC.
