Just after 11am Fairview Car 2121 requested a Squad response for a car into a building that required structural shoring. Hartsdale Engine 171, Car 2174, and Squad 6's collapse trailer responded from Hartsdale. Greenville Fire Squad 15 and Squad Support Unit 15 responded and operated with Hartsdale and Fairview Units. The members of all three departments established a safe area and spilt into teams. One team operated as the cutting table team that was responsible for cutting various pieces of lumber into the correct lengths to construct shoring. Team Two operated as the exterior team shoring outside the structure and Team Three operated as the interior shoring team. The teams initially placed paratech rescue struts as temporary shoring that provided a safe operating area while members constructed wood shoring that would remain in place until permanent repairs could be made. All units operated until shoring was complete and all units cleared the scene at 1330Hrs.

Units: Engine 171, Car 2171, Car 2174, Collapse Trailer 6.
Mutual Aid: Car 2121, Car 2122, Rescue 3, Car 2151, Squad 15, Squad Support Unit 15, Batt 14
