Call Log

Medical – HFD responded to 22 medical calls with 19 patients transported.

There were 2 non-injury motor vehicle crashes.

Feb 6:  As reported last month, Hinesburg was dispatched to a report of smoke coming from the eaves.  On arrival, a working incident was toned, and mutual aid requested.  The State Fire Marshalls’ office and insurance company investigated.  The suspected cause was heat generated from pipes being soldered.

Feb 20:  Dispatched for a residential CO detector sounding.  The residence was checked with our gas meter and no readings were found.  The beeps from the detector were the end-of-life warning beeps.  The detector was taken out of service and replaced with a newer detector which the resident had already purchased.  Engine 3 and Med 100 responded with 5 members.

Feb 21: Dispatched to Silver Street for a report of a chick brooder on fire in a barn.  On arrival, the fire had been extinguished and removed from the barn by a neighbor.  The cause appears to have been electrical.  Engines 1, 3 and Med 100 responded with 7 members.

Feb 24: Dispatched to Pond Rd for a report of a gas leak.  The caller stated snow and ice fell off the roof onto the meter.  The resident stated they had contacted their propane supplier.  HFD arrived on scene to find the meter had been knocked off the house causing the leak.  The propane tank was turned off pending repair by the propane supplier.  Engine 1 and Med 100 responded with 4 members.

Feb 25:  Dispatched to Dee PT on Farmall Drive for a report of a vehicle which had driven into the building.  Dispatch reported the driver was still in the vehicle, it was unknown if there were any injured persons in the building and there was extensive structural damage.  HFD arrived on scene and made sure the scene was safe for responders to enter the building.  Once cleared, Hinesburg EMS attended to the driver and one person who was in the area of the crash.  Both persons refused transport to UVMMC.  Engine 1, Med 100, and St Michaels responded with 15 members.
