Answering The Call

An EMT and fireman enter the residence of the woman in distress.

When the call comes across the radio, Pueblo's first responders stand ready to answer, no matter the
circumstances. On this particular morning an elderly woman was in distress at her house when
Engine 8 was dispatched to help. As the firemen of Engine 8 rolled on the scene paramedics had already made contact with the patient and were preparing to stabilizing her for movement to a nearby hospital. After the EMT's and firemen prepared the patient for transportation, she was loaded into the back of an ambulance and delivered to a hospital for further treatment.

Firefighters wait outside to assist the patient.
