We often talk about heroic acts performed by Medics and EMT's in Calvert County but today we need to recognize a local teenager who is truly a hero. This person who became a burn patient was trapped in her bedroom with her younger 11 year old sister this morning when their home suddenly caught fire. Both burn patients were trapped in their bedroom by the fire that was in the living room preventing them from going out the front door. The girls parents frantically ran around the front of the house and worked to breakout an window AC unit so that the children could come out the window. The older sister protected her little sister from the smoke and heat and when the AC unit was broken out of the window she pushed her little sister out of the opening, once her sister was out she climbed out with the help from adults outside the window in the front yard. The older sister received several 2nd degree burns shielding her sister from the smoke and heat. Both children and all other occupants were out of th house upon the arrival of Solomons VFD units. E31, Trk 3 and Chief 3 were all on scene within 5 mins of the initial call. With the new dispatch procedure the Medic was alerted on the initial alarm and M104 (PMIC E. Tsurami) was enroute from Prince Frederick. Chief 10 was in the area and when Chief 3 (J. Ford) gave the update of subjects burned in the front yard he added himself to the call. Chief 10 arrived on scene within 2 mins of the children being removed from the home and found them in the care of A37. Chief 10 with the assistance of EMT's from Solomons immediately began treatment of both patients in the back of A37. Very soon after A38 and M104 arrived on scene and the younger sister was moved into A38. Due to the burns and airway compromise a consult was conducted and both Children were accepted at a local burn center via MSP aviation. While both medics were busy working treating the sisters, command requested a 3rd ambulance for the stand by for the firefighters still fighting the fire. A77 and Chief 10B S. Sturmer responded POV to make sure that our volunteer firefighters had proper EMS coverage while they battled the 1 alarm blaze. Both patients were medevac'd together to a local burn center in DC by MSP Trooper 7.

Units: E31, E33, Trk3, E71, E21, SME73, SME74, SME92, SqD2, A37, A38, M104, Chief 3, Chief 10, Chief10B, CCSO, MSFM Investigators, MSP Trooper 7.
