Hi was inspired to write this blog after reading tiller babe blog on a day in work. Anyway this was my night in work hope you get an insight into my work on a typical 15 hour shift .I will not include where these happened.Also I’ll mention pumps which are fire engines

18.00 Start duty for the next 45 minutes all the gear on appliances are tested, checked, cleaned and made sure to be safe. That is if you’re not turned out

18.33 Pump and rescue unit to a horse stuck in mud on the river bank. Got there and the horse was stuck in mud up to its belly.6 burly firefighters along with 2 owners pulled pushed shoved to no avail. So we had to get straps under the belly of the horse. Muck and mud everywhere not an easy task and use a hand winch over a nearby tree to attempt to pull the horse up and out at the same time as firefighters pushing and shove. After bout 15 minutes we managed to free the stupid nag. Back to station clean equipment and into the shower jesus we were filty mud everywhere. And for you horny women we have an open plan 5 shower cubicle .Now now contain yourself

I9.55 Ah dinner ready chicken stir fry yummy I was starven after the horse incident. Just after starting it turn out 2 pumps rescue unit and ambulance to Sheltered accomadation for homeless with multiple casualties trapped. Got there smoke billowing out of hostel 6 firefighters in breathing apparatus get the people out .I was told to put breathing set on and search for fire. Eventually found it on first floor wow the heat crawl on belly( heat rises so its cooler on the floor) working my way to the inside door before opening it put loads of water on it to cool it down My partner eases the door open inch by inch so as not to cause a flash over( anyone who ever saw Backdraft or towering inferno will know) Once no sudden rush of fire towards us we proceed to quick spray water from ceiling to floor. Eventually with fire controlled time for a quick search of room make sure no casualties whew none except a very large snake very very dead. In all 8 people were rescued from the smoke filled building. Not a bad nights work. Returned to station at 23..05. Damm stir fry in the bin. Time for another shower contain yourself girls.

23.34 Pump to car fire on waste ground. Get there car completely ablaze in the middle of waste ground. We start to put the fire out next stones bricks and bottles rain down on us .We’re under attack fron the local youths this has become quite common so its time to bail out no car is worth injury .Let it burn itself out. Back to station again.

00.02 Pump and ambulance to cardiac arrest. Get there 50 year old male not breathing with a piece of steak stuck in throath. We manage to do a mamover to get it out still not breathing. Put on the defibrillator shock pads. Give him 3 shocks still not breathing into ambulance off to hospital. Unfortunately the man never started breathing .Quiet fire engine on the way back to station. We don’t like to lose anyone.

To be continued

Love firehotxxxxxxxxx
