May 9, 2010 -- Level 2 Hi-rise Response for San Jose Fire

Mother's Day breakfast was interrupted for two Fire Associate members. On Sunday, May 9, at 8:46 A.M., San Jose Fire paged Fire Associates to a level 2 high-rise incident at San Jose State University. Bruce has submitted the following report:

Sprinklers had been activated and there was a large amount of water on at least two floors of the dorms. The flooding was located on the 1st and 2nd floors of Tower "B" in the new dorm village complex. Bruce Dembecki responded with Fire Support 2 and was met on scene by John Whitaker.

Upon arrival, we were directed into a setup position by Med 30 and asked to hold for a few minutes before providing service. They were working to release some units and were trying to determine if we should start a coffee service. Ultimately, we were released before setting anything up. Fire Support Unit 2 was back at Station 6 and drying off at 10:15 A.M.
