First due Engine had a report from PD that a woman was trapped in a bedroom.  Members VES’d the room, closing the bedroom door, finding the woman unconscious.  As the Engine Company removed the victim to the window, the first due Truck Company assisted in taking the woman out of the window.  They found pulses on the female, and rendered aid.  The lady ended up not only gaining consciousness on the scene, but refused transport!

Here is a nice article written on the event.  VES saves lives!!!!!
