EMS CALL TURNED INTO MAJOR CO INCIDENT AND CLOSED ENTIRE HOTEL
Sun. May 26th 2019

Crews were called for a syncopal episode for a worker at the Days Inn 7415 Schultz Road. S-427 & M-42 units responded. On arrival pt was found in the laundry room area unresponsive. The first in bag CO monitor sounded with a high reading (over 200PPM) Crew did a rapid extrication out of the room and outside to the ambulance. They then notified the hotel manager to pull the fire alarm to evacuate the building and notified dispatch that this was a CO with illness and needed the rescue and additional staff to respond. S-437, R-428, U-438 all responded to the scene. National fuel gas was notified by dispatch center.

On scene a 2 man crew donned SCBA and entered the building with CO monitor. Laundry room was found to have 1000 PPM of CO. Entire building had to be checked for any possible unconscious patrons. A second alarm for and engine and truck from belle valley was made as well as an additional ambulance from Kuhl hose and 1 from Mckean hose. The gas to the building was shut off at the meter after finding lethal levels of CO in the building. Per the guest sheet there were 93 adults and 11 children signed in for the night. As additional crews arrived the building was searched floor by floor and room by room to ensure there were no people in the building.  CO readings on the upper floors were between 500 and 1000PPM also. After all rooms had been evacuated with 3 people found in rooms, crews then went to rehab, filled SCBA cylinders and then went back into building to start ventilation operations.  Multiple fans were placed in the building and additional fans were gathered from station 42 and station 36. U-629 responded with a large 48" vent fan and West Lake R-487 with the air boat responded to provide additional ventilation. Ventilation services continued till the levels of CO were below 20PPM on all floors. Crews were on air for a good portion of the time operating on scene. only after CO levels were below 20 PPM were crews permitted to doff their SCBA. Crews returned in service at 2320 hrs. with some companies returned sooner.

2 people were transported from the scene. The initial pt who had passed out and 1 of the 3 people found in a room on the room by room search.  Both were taken ALS to the hospital. 1st to HMC,  2nd to Saint Vincent. The hotel will remained closed until repairs can be made. The CO source was from the pool heater and the hot water heater with vent problems.

Lucky that the employee got sick or the hotel could of had multiple fatalities come morning with the extremely high levels of CO found throughout the facility.

Units on scene: S-427, S-437, R-428, U-438, M-42, T-369, U-367, S-687, S-407, U-629, R-485, air boat 486, NFG
