The purpose of their creation was to relieve the fire department proper of the numberless rescue calls which do not Involve flre hazards. The squads are specially equipped to cope with any type of rescue work on land. That means anything nnd everything you could possibly imagine. As well as a host of things that you won't imagine but -which happen Just the same. Fortunately. I happened to be In the station at 62nd and Green sts., where the South side squad is located, the boy was brought in. Sits in Wagon I was sitting to the wagon inspect- ing the equipment Only a few mo- ments before, Hughes had explained the use of the Inhalator. The case was still open and ready for the use to which it was immediately put. "That's probably the most popular piece of equipment in the Hughes had told me. The machine is fitted with a small and a large mask. One Is used for in- fants and children. The other sire is for adults. The masks are made of thin, flex- ible rubber, like that used to fashion iurgcons' gloves. They flt over the jooUIIa and mouth. Just above the oxygen tanks of the machine is a dial affair and a lever. With one flip of the handle, the ma- chine feeds pure oxygen to the per- son. With another flip, the machine docs the whole business of breathing. Air is forced into the lungs and out. Whether he will or not, the person undergoing resuscitation, breathes. Bulk ot Calls Carbon monoxide cases and drown- ings form the bulk of the station's calls. "We can't do much about the Hughes said. "The coast guard usually gets there before us. All we can do, is offer our help. Sometimes that's pretty big, because Df the Inhalator. Lots of times, a person has been given up for good and that machine has brought them around. "It's the newest and most perfect thing, yet. Only three of them in the city and the squads have those three. Other places have the old type of machine." Gas Thins Blood I wondered if persons overcome with carbon monoxide gas ever felt any bad effects. "Sure they said Hughes. "If it's a really bad case, the person usually has to undergo tt blood trans- fusion. The gaa thins out the blood. Even If the person doesn't have the transfusion, he has to take It mighty easy for a week or so. otherwise be might get pneumonia. Or anything to which a person hi a weakened con- dition Is susceptible. "I remember last winter, we re- vived a taxi driver. It was after one of those blizzards. He had worked for about two days without sleeping or going to the garage. So he was oil in. "Well, when he got to the garage. there was s string of cars already i'c pUiilU Up U> Uic Cuiu, climbed into the back scat and went to sleep. All Windows Shut "The others just passed him up. Didn't think there was anything wrong there until late the following night. All the windows were shut. too. When we started working on him. he was about gone. "He came around. We told him, and the doctor told him, that he'd better get to the hospital as quick as he could. He didn't laugh at us, he couldn't. But he wouldn't go. "Great big fellow he was, too. With a build like that of Jack Demnsey. He thought he'd feel all right in a couple of days and save the hospital expense. "He saved on the hospital, but someone had to pay for his funeral. His landlady found him dead in bed the day after. Didn't have enough blood to keep going." Removal of the injured from the scene of an accident is one of the squad's specialties. The victims may be pinned beneath railroad cars in a train wreck or in the midst of the flaming wreckage of an aeroplane crash. the squad dashes out to do its duty. Carries First Aid Kit The wagon is equipped with a first aid kit for the injured and with huge jacks for lifting up heavy automo- biles. street cars and railroad trains. Accidents are odd affairs and people do get caught in impossible ways. And the squad is always ready for the im- possible. They have a contraption for cutting high tension electric wires. Another for slicing the iron bars from win- dows. Ladders, yes. And heavy sledges for smashing through walls. Hatchets for chopping away wreckage. Shovels, for digging through sand and earth for the victims of a cave-in. Small, com- pact flre extinguishers filled with a chemical. And, gas masks. 'Help In Disaster These were put to good use in the tunnel disaster at 22nd and Laflin sts. last winter. Remembering It, I shud- dered. "What was it like, going down In that I asked. Hughes, who 'had made many trips below, scratched his head. he replied, "it was awfully smoky and you couldn't see much. So it was pretty hard to find any- body. Pretty hot at first. We were at it for so long, too, that we all got fagged out." "But didn't It bother you at I. persisted. "Going down and just sort of feeling around. Those masks aren't so pleasant or so comfortable." "Well no, they he admitted. "I'd rather breathe without one, but of course you couldn't do that in the tunnel. Bother? Oh no, that's our work." Ammonia leaks in packing plants, ice houses and wherever refrigera- tors are used, also occasion work for the squad and the gas masks. Ammonia gas is one of the deadliest and quickest to take effect. No Easy The squad, when called upon, wades through the danger zones at the plants to manipulate the con- trols of refrigerators that have gone haywire. No easy thing. "Getting the right lever, that's the said Hughes. "You have to be sure that you're turning the gas off and not on. We also have to fish around and get anyone that's been overcome by the gas." In addition to being firemen and physicians in a pinch, the squad must atlso turn engineers. One of the least burdensome du- ties is opening the door for persons who have locked themselves out of their homes. No disaster is too big, and no mis- hap is too small, for the emergency squad. It's equipped and ready for anything that may happen. Calamities? To us, maybe, but Just another job for the emergency squad.
