A Rural/Metro Fire Department engine 230 was answering an nonemergency medical call when it flopped onto its side on McCloud Road.
“The truck was going to a nonemergency call when it left the road,” said Rural/Metro Regional Director Jerry Harnish. No other vehicles were involved.
Harnish said there were three emergency personnel on the truck at the time. One person complained of minor side pain, Harnish said, but no one was seriously injured.
Harnish said the 2005 Ferrara engine that carries 750 gallons of water will be inspected at Rural/Metro’s fleet service for any unseen damage.
The engine is the only one assigned to the Halls station.
“We’ll put a reserve engine out there until this one is ready,” Harnish said.
