Report Number: 07-0001162
Report Date: 12/12/2007
Three engines were responding to a report of a commercial structure fire. All three engines were enroute from different areas. Engine-1 entered an intersection after clearing, followed by Engine-3. While E-1 and E-3 were in the intersection, Engine 2 entered the same intersection following a tractor trailer truck, which was stopped in the intersection. Engine 3 and Engine 2 had a minor collision. There were no injuries and damage was minimal due to the caution given by both drivers in the intersection. Damages were limited to a few bumps and scrapes on the paint and body of the front bumpers.
The lessons learned in this event include:
1) Improving communication between apparatus while responding
2) Always be aware of the location of other responding units (apparatus, POV's, EMS, Law Enforcement, etc.)
