Station 3 Helps Man Experiencing Car Trouble Next Door

Paramedic Congdon helps man with broken wheel

Firefighters at Station 3 ('B' shift) came to the aid of a man who was distressed after a wheel broke off his van in the parking lot next door this week.

The crew received a knock on the door when the manager of Willy Street Co-op came over to ask if they might know how to help this man, who couldn’t afford a tow truck but needed to move the vehicle to a parking spot in order to avoid a ticket.

Firefighters Pat Kearney, Robert O’Hagen, Firefighter/Paramedic Daniel Congdon, and Acting Lieutenant Lance Radock first tried to replace the wheel but had no success. Next, they retrieved a car jack from one of their own personal vehicles. They used it to jack up the van and then placed a series of blocks down to allow them to push the van into a parking spot.

With the van out of the way of other shoppers coming and going from the busy parking lot, the man was able to focus on finding a long-term solution to his predicament without fear of getting a ticket.

He was very grateful and grew emotional as he thanked Station 3 for what they did to help him in his time of need.
