Firefighters come to aid of injured worker
The Fairfield Fire Department deployed its special operations trailer to Harbor Road this morning to provide emergency assistance to a man who reportedly succumbed to fumes while working on a septic system.
Upon arrival at 297 Harbor Road in Southport at approximately 9:30 a.m., firefighters located an unconscious male on the ground. He was being tended to by a co-worker. The men were equipped with a rope-rigging and ventilation system used to gain entry into confined spaces, like septic systems.
