Teein' It Up

Today has been a pretty uneventful day in Southeast, a couple EMS calls, medic unit has ran three up to this point. At 1802 E6 & M6 were dispatched to a car into a house in the 1700 block of Wise AV SE. Upon arrival it was determined that there was no injuries or immediate life hazards. Details are not clear yet but an elderly woman escaped injury after her pickup truck drove through a back yard hitting another small car which caused the car to take out a brick supporting column in the rear of the house. Additional units were requested to place a temporary shore to stabilize the back porch of the house. Additional units that responded were E11 who brought HTR6 from #6 Firehouse, and the crew from L1. After successful stabilization utilizing of the back porch utilizing a simple T-Shore, units returned to service. Let's hope that the quiet day continues through the night, so long folks.
