[ARCHIVED] Kudos to LCFD Shift B Engine 3 and Shift A Engine 3 and Truck 1

Fire Station 3

In the early morning of May 17th, B shift E3 was first on scene and performed the rescue of a trapped person from a home fire. The four person crew consisting of; Acting LT Harold Caldwell, Acting Driver Sean O'Neil, and Firefighter Trainees Cason Carter and Kristin Wahlen, was able to establish command of the incident, deploy hoselines and effect the rescue. The quick actions of the crew gave the trapped person their best chance of survival and protected other nearby structures from damage. Additionally the following day on 5/18/2019 Engine 3 on C shift being led by Dwayne Kusserow, Acting Driver Diego Salas and Firefighter Josh Limon investigated smoke coming from the area 2255 West Picacho. When investigating they found a hotel room involved in fire. Because of the windy conditions that day the fire was spreading to an adjacent room and had trapped the occupants. Acting LT. Kusserow made the decision to attack the fire with his personnel, removing the danger of fire from those trapped. The second arriving unit was the Truck 4 crew, which arrived in their Alternate Response Vehicle (ARV) and were able to complete the rescue by removing the occupants. The high level of performance demonstrated by all responders to these calls is a demonstration of their dedication to our community, their drive to train, along with their dedication to our profession.
