* Wayne and I walk from the ER of Dominguez to the Ambulance, I step in the drivers side as Wayne Loads into the passenger. I turn the engine on and flip the lights. Slowly we pull away from the Ambulance bays and out onto San Julian. Once on I hit the siren and speed up towards the Scene. *

' Well I sure hope the engine hurries up, this is going ot be a bummer carrying this person from what the 3rd floor?. '

( Ima go ahead and sub in on 11's until a replacement can be found since my ride has been eliminated lol. )

* As Cpt. Brondum calls us en route I sit back and Brad pulls us out of the station. Being on a new engine It is a little weird for me not to be able to drive but i embrace it as we start picking up speed towards the mall. *

' Hey Cap. Whats the plan for us?. '

' Yea i hear ya, I for damn sure am not lugging a man down 3 stories. '

* Looking out the window as traffic goes zipping by. I reflect on the past experiences and shake my head real quick. Trying to refocus on the upcoming call. *

" Medic-11 to Engine-48 we are 1 minute out. "

*I let Brad know that we are clear on the right as I turn to the guys.*
'Guys, since we're going with the medic, lets grab some O2 and the ALS bag. Brad, you and I are gonna see if we can help out the medic unit. George, take Sionis and try to make contact with mall security, ok?'
*I look out the window as we pull into the mall parking lot.*

* I pull up into the parking lot and kill the siren. Leaving the lights running Wayne points to where security is set to meet us. *

' I see them now. '

* I flip off the Q as we slowly pull into the parking lot. *

' No worries Cap i'll stick with you. '

* I pull in behind the Medic unit and shut the engine down. I turn off the lights and flip on the hazard flashers then step out. Shutting my door behind me i start walking around the front of the engine and toward the Captain. *

* Mark and I both walk around to the back of the ambulance and pull out the stretcher. Its preloaded with an oxygen tank, Cardiac monitor and an ALS bag. I grab the biophone and set it up on the stretcher and we start walking in with the engine crew behind us. The security guards both come sprinting up to us. *

Guard: Hurry hurry please he is having so much trouble breathing. he is gasping. I have no idea what to do and the nurse is having troubles on her own. please hurry.

' Alright calm down son, we got it just calmly show us where this is please. '

* We continue walking briskly now towards the elevator. *

*I see some more mall security personal standing at the door as they direct us upstairs. I follow them with the ALS bag and turn to see Brad directly behind me while George and Roman walk inside. As we walk toward the elevator, I let out a silent sigh of relief as we won't have to carry someone down three flights of stairs. I walk into elevator with Brad and one of the other security guards behind me. I see the door close as I feel a tight squeeze with six people and a stretcher all inside one small elevator.*

* The ride up the elevator is akward with all the peopel crammed into it. Once on the third floor we all but spill out of the elevator and start walking toward the store...... The store is small, cigar humidors and display cases line the perimeter. the boy is in the middle of the store on his back sort of being cradled by this nurse. Mark and i walk into the store followed closely by the engine crew. *

" Fire....Medic-11 and Engine-48 have made contact with the patient..."

* Mark begins to get the gear out as I kneel down to the patient. *


' Hi, Im Wayne with the Fire Department. I'll tell you what. before we do anythign to you lets move you out to the little hallway here. if your having difficulty breathing being in a smoke shop isnt the best thing for ya. '

* i stand back up as the patient nods his head and I look over at Nicholas and his crew. *

' Cap, can you move him to the hallway please while we get our gear set-up?. '

'No problem.'
*I turn to George and Brad.*
'Guys, get these gawkers outta here.'
*I turn to the boy.*
'Sir, we're gonna move you and I'm Nicholas with the Fire Department.'
*I move to the other side of the man and see that the medic unit has brought in a backboard. Even though nothing in his spine is messed up, most likely, it can help us to move him. I grab the backboard and begin to move it underneath him before the nurse starts freaking out.*
Me: 'M'am, just calm down. Do you know this patient?'
Nurse: 'Yes elsewise I wouldn't be here.'
Me: 'Ok, you need to calm down though. We can take him from now, you know why don't you follow us outside.'
*I turn back to see that Roman has the back board ready to slide it under. I help to halfway roll the man on his side as Roman pushes the backboard under the man. We get him situated on the board as I count to three and lift the backboard at the same time as we begin to walk outside to the hallway. I see that Brad and George have the crowd separated as we make our way outside. I set him down and motion to the medics that we have him out.*

* As the engine crew lays the boy down on the stretcher I thank them before promptly sitting the boy up. I attach a mask to him and start a 90% flow to him. As he starts to take deeper and deeper breaths I feel a little more comfortable taking a good set of vitals. *

* As mark begins to take the vitals from the patient i get on our hospital phone ot find out Dominguez's status. *

" Dominguez Emergency....Coronado Medic-11 on 2 Charlie. I have a 19 year old Male with difficulty breathing. he has been inside a cigar shop trying out different cigars when the incident occured. We are giving him o2 by mask at 90%...What is your status. "

" Medic-11....Dominguez ER.......We are open and available for receiving. Continue to monitor your patient and update status when transporting. Dominguez Cear..."

" Medic-11 out. "

* I look back at the boy *

' Son, we are gonna take you to Dominguez Medical Center. Is there family or somebody we can call for you?. '

* He shakes his head yes and hands me a number. I give it to the Security officers and have tem contact his parents while we prep him for transport. As Mark is prepping him I stand up and look over at Cpt. Brondum. *

' Hey cap we are almost ready to move, an we get your guys's help getting our gear and stuff t the ambulance. '

'Yeah, you guys take the elevator, well take the stairs. Roman, why don't you stay with the medics, we can handle the equipment.'
*I grab out ALS bag and the medic's. I let Brad and George take our O2 canister, the medic's canister, and their cardiac monitor. I see the biophone is being used, so I leave it for the medic unit and Roman. I follow one of the security guards put to the rigs. When we do get outside, I leave the medic's ALS bag on their back bench and put ours back away behind its roll up compartment. I leave it open for our O2 canister and wait to see if we can head back inside to help with anything.*

* Wayne, Roman and i get the patient onto the elevator. I look at the boys color start to return and his breathing distrett seems to ease up a bit. I nod my head yes and feel a slight relief. As the elevator gets to the bottom floor we all get out and continue to roll the patient to the ambulance where the engine crew has all but loaded our stuff up. *

' Wow thanks guys good call. '

* Wayne gets in the back and helps to guide the stretcher into position. I watch as he begins to get him self ready and stow the gear into position. I close the back doors and start walking towards the front of the ambulance. *

' Thanks again u guys, really appreciate your guys help. '

* I get into the ambulance and start it up. I turn off the emergency lights and start to drive away slowly out of the parking lot towards the street. *

" Fire....Coronado Medic-11 is transporting 1 patient to Dominguez medical Center No Code. "

'No problem guys.'
*I sigh and step back into the truck. I grab the mic and key it as everyone else gets in.*
"Fire... Engine 48 is clear, returning to quarters."
*I sit back in my seat as Brad flips off the lights and starts to drive us back. I remember the email that I got sent when roman came over to our engine.*
'Brad, Roman when we get back switch spots. We didn't have a lot of time earlier, so when we get back, just swap your stuff.'
