Bristol Firefighters recieve Commendations for Actions at Fire
At the Monday (May 22) Bristol Fire Board meeting, firefighters from 4th Platoon, Tower 1, received commendations for their actions at a structure fire on Monday April 17, 2017. In the evening of Monday, April 17, Bristol firefighters were dispatched to the report of a structure fire. Upon arrival to the reported address, firefighters were met with a working structure fire in a two story residential structure. Tower 1 firefighters Derek Freimuth and Donald Perrault, under the direction of Captain James Plaster, made entry into the structure to conduct a primary search. Within a few feet of entering, the tower crew made contact with a victim and proceeded to remove her from the structure. Life saving actions were performed on the fire victim, successfully, and the victim was transported to a local hospital for further care. The quick actions of these three firefighters along with the professional and exemplary skills of all firefighters on scene is a testament to the professionalism and outstanding work of the members of the Bristol Fire Department.
