No fines this week
Santa Maria Fire Dept (Crew of Engine #2)
This week's program was presented by the crew of Engine #2. They spoke to the membership about a recent tower rescue that they performed in Los Alamos. A workman experienced shock trauma and was hanging by his arm in a harness 150 feet off the ground. Fortunately, the firefighters had been adequately trained throughout their career and were successful in their rescue attempt. The entire procedure lasted over five hours and it took two firemen 30 minutes each to safely climb up the tower to get to the man in distress. Chief Leonard Champion (who is also a Rotary Club member) is very proud of the way his team handled the situation which resulted in no major injuries for anyone that was involved.
