* The haze of the evening sets in as Steve turns the lights on. Putting my turnout coat on the center console of the truck I hear that Robert calls out he is ready. Steve takes the brake off and we head out slowly into the night. *

" Truck-17 is responding fire, Time out 2039 "

* I hear the engine company call out their response as well and we make out turn onto Crenshaw. Immediately steve turns the siren on and we start slowly into the night. the haze is turning to fog pretty quick though not heavy it still adds an element of danger to our drive. *

' Well guys im not sure at all why they are going to need us for this call. an overturned Zamboni doesn't seem like much of a need for anything other than a town truck, but just in case be ready with some granules to mop up fuel and oil. '

* I hear over the radio that 12 is confirming that there is 1 person trapped under the vehicle. *

" 17 copies 12 we are 1 minute out. "

' Alright guys, when we get there, change of plans, grab wedges, cribbing and a couple jacks. '

" Truck-17 is on scene. "

* As we pull up I Get my turnout coat on and take my earphones off. *

' Alright guys lets get this done. '

* The truck comes to a stop and my door comes open. I step out and start walking inside while the rest of the crew gets the gear they need. I walk over to the overturned Zamboni and see the guys from 12 trying to shore it up already. I kneel down next to the captain. *

' Hey Roman, what happened here. ? '
Roman: He was playing around and overturned this, doubt he thought this would happen lol.

Me: Yea tell me about it. alright the rest of the truck is coming with the cribbing to shore this up then u can pull him out. Is he stable?.

Roman: yea so far but he will crash im sure once pressure is off of his lower body.

Me: Alright

* I stand back up as Steve, Robert and damon come in and immediately start working with 12 to get the truck shored up. *

" Truck-17 to fire. upgrade our ambulance to Code-3 and start Medic-11 just to be sure. "

* Robert, Steve and I walk in. Im carrying the wedges so I am the first to kneel down and set them into position underneath the Zamboni, Steve gets the jacks in place as close to the front and back as he can and starts getting them ready to lift.*

' Steve Im ready here. Whenever you want to start the lift. '

* I Push the wedges as far as I can get them in. Rob gets the generator started as the jacks slowly get power and lift the vehicle up. slowly I add more cribbing until we have a decent platform under the Zamboni to work with. Engine-12's crew assited by the captain pull the man out and begin working on him . *

* After the patient is pulled from underneath the Zamboni I start to look around as the scene starts rapidly unfolding. Steve and damon start lowering the Zamboni and removing the cribbing then the jacks once the vehicle is low enough, I start walking out to the truck unbuttoning my coat as I go. *

' Gentlemen, lets start packing up then we can help the engine out if they need it. '

* As the cribbing and jacks are broght out from the vehicle I pick up the generator and roll up the cords. I lift up the handle and start rolling it back to the truck. the ambulance crew passes me coming into the building. *

' Well Rob at least we got out of the station for a bit. '

' Alright boys lets move out. '

* 12 loads the patient into the ambo with the assistance of the ambulance crew, my team loads themselves back into the truck. I get into the truck and get my headset on. *

" Fire, Truck-17 is available returning to station. "

* Steve puts us in gear and we head back home. *
