Between Sept. 28 and Oct. 4, the Valley Regional Fire Authority responded to 238 calls for service, among which were the following:

Sept. 28

Aid call: 2:11 p.m., (Auburn). Firefighters evaluated a girl who was feeling ill, and AID 332 transported her to MultiCare Auburn Medical Center.

Sept. 29

CPR: 5:24 p.m., (South Auburn). Firefighters and paramedics responded to an unconscious woman and found her husband performing CPR on her, so they took over from him until someone found her DNR form. Personnel stayed on scene to help the family and called in a chaplain.

Sept. 30

Car vs. pedestrian: 8:30 p.m., (Lakeland Hills). Firefighters, King County paramedics and Auburn Police responding to a man who had been struck by a vehicle in a pedestrian walkway found him unresponsive with multiple injuries, so they treated and stabilized him until a NW Life Flight helicopter could fly him to Harborview Medical Center.

Oct. 1

Vehicle vs. bicycle: 7 p.m., (Auburn). Firefighters and King County Medics responded to a vehicle vs. bicycle accident and arrived to find the bicyclist down on the crosswalk, so they assessed and treated him on scene before firefighters transported him to MAMC for further treatment.

Oct. 2

Aid call: 1:32 p.m., (Auburn). Firefighters treated a middle-aged woman who had sustained multiple dog bites and transported her to St. Francis Hospital for further medical treatment.

Oct. 3

Motorcycle accident: 2:40 p.m., (Auburn). Firefighters responded to a woman who had gotten into an accident on her motorcycle near the Outlet Collection. The woman had been receiving training and practicing her driving skills when she lost control of the motorcycle and ended up down a small embankment through heavy blackberry brush and with the motorcycle on top of her. She was not hurt, however, and walked up from the embankment under her own steam.

Oct. 4

Dumpster fire: 9:49 p.m., (Auburn). Firefighters responding to a dumpster fire at the Sounder station arrived to find a fully involved recycling dumpster on fire with no exposure to any structure, so they pulled a line and killed the conflagration. The cause is unknown.
