Lessons Learned

Last night we were relaxing on the apron (driveway in front of the apparatus bay) when we got toned out for a vehicle fire. We quickly (and by quickly I mean we were literally running) got dressed and headed out. The call was located down the grade in Riverside County. As we switched to their radio frequency we heard Engine 37 go responding. We could tell by their voices that they were hurrying too. They knew that we were responding and that we quite frequently beat them to calls in their own area. It turned out that the car was not located on highway 62, but was about a mile or so east of that location. Since it was a little closer to Engine 37's station they beat us by about 30 seconds. The car was totally involved and we just missed it. I guess 37 learned that if we are responding they better hurry.
