Adams County U/D: Aurora FD has now been requested M/A trying to establish comms on Red NE.

AFD sending Batt 2 & 3, Squad 12, Engine 15, Three RM ambs and Trucks 2 and 8. All AFD units are on Red NE but Bennett/Sable command or Adcom are still unable to get Red NE to work.

Reporting one fatal so far.

DFD is willing to help

Watkins U/D: 2nd accident command reporting two pts trapped and poss one code black as well heavy extrication needed, North Metro FD now offering heavy rescue resources and DFD offering to send some Montbello units east to cover Aurora if needed.

Platte Valley sending 2 ambs, Rural Metro with a 4th and now Rattlensnake also enroute with one amb to assist, and moveup's thru out the east side.

Second accident command has been moved to Aurora FD Tac-5

Interesting that most pts transported so far have been non-emergent triaged greens.
