Nov. 3

Aid call: 12:45 p.m., (Pacific). Hurrying to a woman who was possibly having a seizure following her test at a COVID testing site, firefighters found her without any signs or symptoms of a seizure, and, as their own evaluation disclosed no negative findings, they let her family take her home.

Nov. 4

Rollover accident: 2:40 p.m., (Auburn). Firefighters responding to a single-vehicle, rollover accident underneath Highway 18 secured the vehicle, and, as the driver denied any injuries, left him at the scene with his car and the Auburn Police Department.

Nov. 6

Aid call: 8:02 a.m., (Lakeland Hills). Firefighters responding to an unconscious diabetic found the man had passed away earlier in the night, so they turned the scene over to Auburn Police to arrange for medical examiner transport.
