Here’s The Scoop…A Hopper Of A VFD Easter Tale…Who Was First …..Moving Fire Stations…..And A VFD Chief In 2 Places At Once!…

THAT’S A BIG ONE ALRIGHT….

Finally the LBTS-VFD provided the public records request for the  Incident Report on the April 11,2009 drowning …..13 days after the incident and 11 days after the BSO produced theirs…

In the meantime Vice Mayor/Deputy Chief McIntee told one of his “tales” from the dais…and said the VFD Beach Patrol was first on scene and had started CPR…

Those who were attending the Mc-Furth CIC Easter-By- The-Sea event were certainly taken aback at this latest exaggeration made by the VM…

We all watched as the 2 ATV’s left for the beach along with AMR and VFD firetrucks…from where they were stationed at the Municipal Park…

This writer previously posted (scoops, public safety categories) the BSO Incident Report that differed in the account given by McIntee …and in the 4/24/09 BTSFuture an article and pictures of ATV 1 & 2 clearly shows they were not on the beach when this occurred...http://www.bytheseafuture.org/

The BSO report stated…”I witnessed persons performing CPR on white female, later identified as Mary Darnely……LBS Fire/Rescue arrived within 30 seconds and took over the scene and administered CPR and moved Darnley to the ambulance.’

The LBTS-VFD Incident Report shows the following…4/11/09…

BC…This one beats the “tale” of the Station moving to the beach…because as this writer posted and  all in attendance can attest to…VFD Chief Perkins NEVER LEFT his “station” behind his music sound system he was providing for the event…totally oblivious to the call! What a “command post”!…This report was “reviewed” by Chief Perkins…YIKES!…First we have   “2-Hats” Commissioners…and now we have a Chief in 2 places at once!…

The report was made on April 24,2009 13 days after the event…

New Narrative (VFD)…Incident…11:44:33 Friday, April 24,2009

Author 585- Chavez, Daniel

Narrative Text “At 1013 hours on Saturday April 11,2009 we were dispatched to surf rescue.Seven units were assigned to this incident. Seventeen personnel responded. We arrived on scene at 1016 hours and cleared at 130 hours. The incident occurred at 4144 El Mar Drive L-B-T-S in District 12A. The local station is 12. The general description of this property is beach. The primary task(s) performed at the scene by responding personnel was to provide basic life support (BLS) No mutual /automatic aid was given or received.’Upon E12 arrival, patient was found on the beach unresponsive. E12 provided BLS and released and transferred care to AMR upon its arrival (CP Padden). Pt was transported to Holy Cross hospital by AMR. ” Alarm number 1400376 has been assigned to this incident.

BC- Did Kevin Padden arrive on scene as AMR in AMR truck or as VFD in Beach Patrol ATV?…(possibly off- duty still in AMR uniform?)

VFD report Apparatus BE12…Personnel 1 088-Padden, Kevin

VFD narrative…E12 provided BLS and released and transferred care to AMR upon its arrival (CP Padden).

The time has come to stop all these “shoddy” Incident Reports and to require multiple vehicle reports to done by those on scene within hours of their return from the incident …We were told would be the standard practice of the department by the Chief during their transition period…….

more to come…
