Battalion TV: Calaveras Consolidated Fire Protection District
This webisode follows one of the firefighter/engineers with this Sierra foothills combination department. His day starts off arriving on-scene of a Toyota truck with a camper that had rolled over on the very curvy highway road not far from the Jenny Lind Station. With critical care hospitals so far away, most often a Helicopter must be called in to transport patients. The Chief of this mountain town is progressive with everything he does and a new heliport is on his agenda. Next, the crews from this department head to the Calaveras River for portable pump testing as they draft from the river as a training exercise for structure protection, then, a walk-in attacked by a dog.
