On Thursday, January 31st 2013 at 8:43 PM, the Lakeside Fire Protection District received a call reference a vehicle accident that was blocking all lanes on Wildcat Canyon Rd just north of Willow Rd. A standard response for vehicle accidents in this area was initiated which sent two structural engines, a rescue company, an ALS medic unit, and a duty chief.

As Engine 2 and Medic 2 arrived ( River Park Fire Station) they located two heavily damaged vehicle some distance apart. Command of the incident was assumed by Captain Hisaw. A request was made to send an additional medic unit due to the distance and status of the two injured drivers. Medic 3 (Lake Jennings Fire Station) was sent to the incident.
